The name "Espn" for Jim's (Adam Sandler's) daughter in the movie came from Adam's visit to a barbecue restaurant in Boca Raton, Florida. The owner had pictures of his kids up, and one of their names was Espn. Adam thought it was a really fun name and asked the owner if he could use it in his new movie for one of his kids. Obviously, the owner was happy to oblige. See more »

Better than what the haters would have you believe..
If you're looking for the Sandler of 15 years ago, or the scoop of septic that the current comedic "geniuses" have to offer (Rogen, Attepow, etc.,) then stay home and watch for umpteenth time the "hilarious" back and forth between Franco and Seth in This Is Then End.
For Blended is reasonable, and funny and OK for older kids, as some of them are facing the same issues that the kids portrayed here are. Adam plays a widow, Drew a divorcée, just working and trying to raise their kids the best way they know how. Meeting for the first time on a blind date, they manage to say and do as much as they can to turn off the other, not that are bad people, but more that they are so unsure of themselves after being on their own so long.
Yeah the logic is more pretzelian than real, they find themselves on the same African Safari vacation that Sandler's boss had set up for himself and Drew's business partner. Thrown together, the two adult characters put forth their best efforts to make the vacation work for their kids and end up making it work for each other.
There is some mildly crude humor, but a lot of it is gentle fun, some of it predictable, some laugh out loud funny.
My family agreed that that crazy fool Terry Crews stole the show! And the rest of the theater agreed, because as soon as his face flashed on the screen everyone started laughing before he had even started one of several hilarious routines, sort of playing like the Greek chorus.
Granted, it's not a 10, but it is way better than the 5 that is currently showing. I give it a 7.
