100 passes to a special screening of Blended!BOSTON AND AROUND, CONTESTS | Nirasha Jaganath | May 12, 2014 at 8:30 am
Drew Barrymore is one of my favorite actresses. I know I’m showing my age saying this (not like I care, I embrace my age) but she feels of my time. Everything from ET to Never been kissed, she exudes energetic without faking it. Adam Sandler may not be my favorite actor for silly comedies (to be fair I’m no fan of silly comedies, give me witty comedies any day of the week) but his romantic comedies have been pretty good chick flick material. So I’m pretty psyched about Blended. And if you’re looking for some date night material, or girlfriend time, I’m also giving away 100 passes to see it early. Yes, before it releases on May 23rd, you can see it on May 19th at this special screening.
Filmed in South Africa, my place of birth, makes this movie extra special to me!
Here’s a little about the movie:
“Blended” marks the third comedy collaboration between stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, following their successful onscreen pairings in the hit romantic comedies “50 First Dates” and “The Wedding Singer.”
After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.
“Blended” also stars Joel McHale (NBC’s “Community”) as Lauren’s ex-husband, Mark, and Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”) as her best friend, Jen; Kevin Nealon (“Weeds”) and Jessica Lowe (funnyordie’s “RobotDown”) as an overly romantic couple also vacationing at the resort; and Terry Crews (“The Expendables 2”) as the resort’s singing host. Shaquille O’Neal appears as Jim’s coworker, Doug, and Dan Patrick (ESPN SportsCenter) as their boss, Dick.
Playing the kids are: Bella Thorne of Disney Channel’s “Shake it Up,” Emma Fuhrmann and Alyvia Alyn Lynd as Jim’s daughters; and Kyle Red Silverstein and Braxton Beckham as Lauren’s sons.
“Blended” is directed by Frank Coraci, who previously collaborated with Sandler and Barrymore on “The Wedding Singer” and also directed Sandler in the hit comedies “The Waterboy” and “Click.” The screenplay is by Ivan Menchell & Clare Sera. The film is produced by Mike Karz, Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo, with Barry Bernardi, Josie Rosen, Tim Herlihy, Allen Covert and Steven Koren serving as executive producers.
Collaborating with Coraci behind the scenes are director of photography Julio Macat (“Pitch Perfect”), production designer Perry Andelin Blake (“Here Comes the Boom”), editor Tom Costain (“Grown Ups”) and costume designer Christine Wada (“Bridesmaids”).
“Blended” was filmed predominantly on location in South Africa.
Slated for release on May 23, 2014, “Blended” is a Warner Bros. Pictures presentation of a Gulfstream Pictures Production, a Happy Madison Production, a Frank Coraci Movie, and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
“Blended” is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for crude and sexual content, and language.
Now do you want to see it? Lucky for you I am giving away 100 passes to the screening!
Advance screening of Blended on Monday, May 19 th at 7:00PM at Boston (full location will be on pass)
- You must also have a Gofobo account (in that link I posted below) in order to get the passes but if you don’t have one already it’s free and really easy and quick to create one.
- Seating at the screening is not guaranteed and is available on a first come, first serve basis (since screenings are overbooked to ensure a full house) so if you get there with your printed pass earlier you can get fab seats. I recommend a minimum of an hour before.
- You can get up to 2 passes each (100 passes in total available) (how amazing is that) – trust me they will go fast!
