The making of the romantic comedy "50 First Dates", the story about a no-strings-attached bachelor who falls in love with an art teacher who sufferers from short-term memory, and cannot remember anything the previous day. The comical documentary short stars funny man Rob Schneider, who plays Ula, who Scheider also plays the actual same character in the movie 50 First Dates, "intervews" the rest of the cast of the movie. It also includes Adam Sandler, who plays Henry Roth, the no-strings-attached-ladies's-living-as-a-bachelor Playboy living in Hawaii, working as an ichthyologist, Drew Barrymore as Lucy Whitmore, Henry's love interest who has short-term memory and that she cannot remember what had happened the previous day, Sean Astin, who plays the steroid-buffed brother of Lucy, and Peter Segal, the director of the movie.

Another romantic Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore pairing. These two certainly have the magic, even more so than Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan. This film, however definitely requires much more of a stretch of imagination than most incredible stories. Fans of the leads who can suspend their disbelief to the maximum, are likely to enjoy this uplifting love story, as well as a very pleasant Beach Boys sound track.
Drew Barrymore recovers from a tragic car crash, however is rendered with total memory loss striking her anew each morning. Sandler meets her by chance and the two hit it off immediately. To Sandler's sad surprise, his new love does not remember him at all the very next day. Eventually Sandler finds out what is wrong, and is determined not only to have Barrymore fall in love with him all over again each day, but also to find a "cure" for her affliction.
There are many discrepancies in this film. Barrymore loses her memory each morning, but always remembers her immediate surroundings, including her father and brother, which is not logical. She lives on a small Hawaiian island, which fortunately is also the location of a unique "institute" specializing in patients suffering from various forms of acute memory loss. How convenient.
If you can look beyond these flaws, you are in for a bitter sweet ending that is as magical as it is unexpected. In the words of Annette Funicello: Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful!
