The on-screen pairing of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore is one of diminishing returns. The first time they partnered up, on 199-SOMETHING amiable "The Wedding Singer," the chemistry was palpable and it was wrapped in a movie that, in retrospect, is one of the funnier, more charming films in Sandler's oeuvre, doused in melancholy and bejeweled with period detail, while 200-SOMETHING's "50 First Dates" was ickier and less stable (mental deficiencies are so romantic); it was a comedy that was beneath either of them, much less them as a duo. And with this week's "Blended," they've hit rock bottom. "Blended" is probably the worst of the bunch, a movie that is, in its subtle way, as offensive and mean-spirited as anything Sandler has done, but in a way that is so cuddly, there's the possibility it could, somehow, go unnoticed.

And the "Bridesmaids" dividends just keep on paying off. With Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy benefiting from the success of the R-rated chick flick, Wendi McLendon-Covey (aka Rita) is the latest to cash in her chips. She's already landed a role in next spring's "What To Expect When You're Expecting" and now, in a move that would make Rita happy, she's getting ready to surround herself with man meat.

The upcoming big screen pregnancy movie keeps growing, with a cast that is getting bigger and a plot that is getting wackier.
