Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler reunite for 50 First Dates 2020 sketch

50 First Dates, Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore

Back in the late nineties and early aughts, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore were an onscreen couple that went together like Jenny and Forrest. Their 1998 comedy classic THE WEDDING SINGER is still beloved by rom-com fans to this very day, and now their 2004 release 50 FIRST DATES is back in the news thanks to a sketch for the actress' new talk show.

In the sketch, Barrymore wakes as her 50 First Dates character Lucy and finds a video filmed her husband, Henry (Adam Sandler), who explains to the sleeping beauty that she has amnesia and that it's the year 2020. As Lucy continues to watch in astonishment, Henry explains that a lot has changed throughout the current year: Baseball is now played in front of cardboard cutouts of famous celebrities, Netflix is an invaluable source for entertainment, and everyone is wearing masks due to an ongoing pandemic. It's a rude awakening for Lucy to be sure, but at least she's got Henry to bring her up to speed and help keep her safe during such trying times.

As the sketch draws to a close, the couple is interrupted by Allen Covert, who played Ten Second Tom in 50 First Dates, as well as many other characters in films starring the one and only Adam Sandler.
