50 First Dates is a romantic comedy with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. This movie is charming and quite funny. What really makes it work is the chemistry between the two main characters.
The story involves a bachelor named Henry who lives in Hawaii. He has no intentions of making a commitment to one person and only has short term relationships. Henry loves living the carefree lifestyle in beautiful Hawaii. Then he meets Lucy in a diner and he is immediately smitten with her.
They get along well together right away. They seem to have a lot in common and enjoy their time together.
However, Henry is shocked the next day when Lucy does not know who he is. He does not believe it at first. Then he discovers that Lucy has short term memory loss. This is as a result of a car accident. Lucy does not remember things from one day to the next. Each day she wakes up unable to remember what happened the day before. She is not even aware she has a problem. Since Lucy has no memory of Henry, he must win her over every day as though courting her for the first time.
One of the things I liked about this movie was how the character of Henry changed in the movie. He is transformed into a thoughtful, caring person and it is done in a way that is not contrived. Henry really wants Lucy to be able to move on in life and recover her memory. Above all, he wants her to remember him when she wakes up the next day. Without giving away the ending, I will say the story does conclude in a way that is very satisfying.
I consider this one of the best romantic comedies. It certainly is romantic to think of falling in love over and over again.
