      If placed in the hands of a second-rate screenwriter, certain concepts or premises could fall apart. This movie could easily have been one of those, but expert screenwriting and fine performances by Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler make this a charming, believable movie.

      The story centers around Drew, who had been involved in a car accident that causes her to lose her ability to retain her short


      term memory. Anything in her life up to the accident she can remember. Anything after it she can’t keep in her mind. She literally relves the same day over and over.

      Enter Adam Sandler, a veterinarian at the local sea life park (think Sea World). He needs some time off, and stumbles upon this little eatery, where he meets Drew and is instantly drawn to her. After ...


      • discovering her condition by some very protective friends, the owners of the eatery, Adam decides to court her, vowing to become a part of her life, one that she will remember. After gaining the trust and support of friends and family, especially her father and brother, Adam goes on first dates with her…over and over. What person wouldn’t want to experience the magic of a first
        date again and again?

        What I like about this movie is its handling of the subject, her condition. It doesn’t pose a miracle cure. Instead, it shows that with a lot of love and caring, surrounded by people who care, and drenched with a lot of patience, those with this condition can lead somewhat normal lives, even achieving a happy ending, as this film does beautifully. Very satisfying.
