Romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore as Lucy Whitmore, a beautiful woman suffering from acute short-term memory loss. After a car accident several months before, she has been left with a rare brain condition that causes her memory to be totally erased every night when she goes to sleep. Adam Sandler plays Henry Roth, a vet who works at the aquarium in the Hawaiian resort where Lucy is living a quiet life with her over-protective father (Blake Clark) and goofy brother (Sean Astin). Henry usually spends his summers seducing a string of female tourists that he'll never see again - but when he meets Lucy he realises he's found something special, and resolves to give up his promiscuous, non-commital lifestyle. The only problem is, when he meets her again the next day, she hasn't got a clue who he is. Henry embarks on an elaborate quest to win her heart, with the help of his stoner best friend Ula (Rob Schneider). Dan Akroyd makes a cameo appearance as Lucy's doctor.

    This Adam Sandler movie is a romantic comedy set in Hawaii. Sandler plays Henry, a Dr Dolittle-type vet whose routine is to pull tourists, not island girls, but things change when he meets a local girl called Lucy (Barrymore). Womaniser Henry falls hard for Lucy but finds the path to true love is strewn with landmines as she has no short term memory and doesn"t remember him 24 hours later; Lucy"s short term memory has been obliterated as the result of a severe blow to the head in a car crash. Now she wakes up each morning unable to recall a single thing from the day before. This unfortunate condition plays havoc with the girl"s love life.

    Henry is not put off by this and decided to renew his love afresh everyday while trying to win over Lucy"s grizzled fisherman dad and steroid-addicted brother; what a charming bloke Henry"s turns out to be. As the vet at a Sea Life Park, his relationships with Jacko the Walrus and the almost human, cloth-wearing penguin were almost like Dr Dolittle.

    Sandler"s old Saturday night live buddy Rob Schneider portrays Henry"s one eyed Hawaiian dope smoking sidekick Ula who is father to a collection of nauseatingly sweet kids. Of course not American comedy would be complete without a side-splittingly weird foreign accent? So we endure Henry"s eastern European aquarium colleague Alexa, an odd looking person of indeterminate gender. There is a good cameo from the legendary Dan Aykroyd.

    This film is a sentimental, but often side splittingly funny, whose smart story serves up a new take on Groundhog Day, except with laughs. Its funny and unexpected romantic as well with Sandler showing surprising genuine charm when he isn"t dealing with a vomiting walrus, or serving up entertaining slapstick; there are plenty of jokes in the worst possible taste. Highly recommended if it"s raining outside and you want to escape to the tropics for a couple of hours.
