Blended (2014)

After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship. (IMDb)

An awfully predictable screenplay here is especially cringe-worthy in its first act as cheap and unfunny humour attempts to grab your attention, painfully wooden dialogue establishes the main characters, and simple plot points set up the storyline in seconds. Yet the film becomes tolerable and even engaging as it progresses; the humour grows on you, and the contrived emotional peaks are undoubtedly effective, for as caricatured as the characters are, you do end up caring for them.

5.9/10
