50 First Dates (2004)


Still on my quest to relax and catch up with watching as much movies as I can. I just watched 50 First Dates today annnd--- I Loved it! I can’t believe I just watched this today. It’s now officially one of my all-time romantic comedy movies of all time. :D

50 First Dates

The plot revolves around playboy and commitment-phobic Henry Roth who meets this interesting girl named Lucy Whitmore (Drew Barrymore) at a café in Hawaii. They actually hit it off at the café as they find out a lot about each other over cottage waffles; all seems pretty cool but it’s not. Turns out Lucy has short term memory loss because of a car accident—her mind is wiped clean every day. It’s now Henry’s job to remind Lucy and get her to fall in love with him again every day. Awww. <3

Besides the plot itself which already has an awww-factor, I loved the setting of Hawaii—it made the movie have a cozy beach theme. I also loved the animals: the walrus and the penguins were extremely adorable and hilarious! :) The Beachboys CD is a nice touch and just the fact that a former commitment phobe now spends every moment of his waking day just to get her to fall in love with him, wow, that thought is overwhelming.  It’s also a scary for Lucy who has to wake up every day unaware of her surroundings, but good thing that Henry is there for her, ever patient (even if there’s a chance of rejection). WOW, what a catch—does that person even exist? I hope he does.

Romance, comedy, drama, beach/Hawaii/relaxed theme—I love the balance of it all in this film. Also, can’t forget that I liked the soundtrack of this movie especially: Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, Wouldn’t It be Nice by the Beach Boys, “Every Breath You Take” by Sting and  “True” (remix) by Will. I. am and Fergie. Something new for my Playlist. :)

For those who haven’t watched this: what are you waiting for? Watch it, watch it!
