Sometimes I just get in the mood for more……DREW BARRYMORE
Drew was only 5 years old when she landed her first acting job. In 1982 at the age of 6 she melted my heart in Stephen Spielberg’s epic summer blockbuster film E.T.
Drew has now been in 57 films and counting…
On September 14, 2020 “The Drew Barrymore Show” debuted on CBS.
She has appeared as herself 236 times in interviews and guest appearances. I suppose her popularity on talk shows led to Drew getting her own talk show.
Drew went up against other popular talk shows and she proved that she too could have a successful career in daytime TV. Drew’s show is high on special interest “feel-good” stories. Her humor, optimism and positive messages have been rays of sunshine in some of the dark days of the pandemic. Her show debuted at the perfect time. We needed the happiness that Drew brings for an hour every weekday. I am happy to report that The Drew Barrymore show has been renewed for a third season.
For 42 years I have enjoyed and found happiness in Drew’s extraordinary talent. I personally love Drew in romantic comedies, but she is certainly not limited to that genre of film. She has starred in dramas, fantasy, thrillers, and horror films.

The Wedding Singer (1998)
I saw this film several times due to a friend who was also in this film. R.I.P. Alexis Arquette.
This is the first of three films in which Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler team up for some beloved and memorable laughs.
In this film New Jersey wedding chanter Robbie Hart (Sandler) loses hope after being abandoned at the altar by his Fiancé. Soon he meets Julia (Barrymore), an effervescent ray of light in the shape of a catering server. She enlists Robbie’s help in planning her own wedding-to a sleazy, junk bond salesman who fools around with other women and treats them like unfeeling slabs of meat.

I highly recommend seeing all 3 films starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. These two actors have great chemistry together.
50 First Dates (2004)
This was the second film that starred Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.
Drew suffered a head injury in an accident and suffers with short-term memory loss. Adam falls hard for Drew, and she becomes the girl of his dreams. Each date is a challenge as he must win her over again…and again due to her short-term memory.
Let’s hope that it’s not the last time we will see Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star together.
After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attractions grow as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship.

Donnie Darko (2001)
Long before “Stranger Things” this cult classic combined science fiction with 80’s nostalgia.
Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days, 06 hours, 42 minutes, and 12 seconds. During that time, he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank’s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum. Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast – pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze and former child star Drew Barrymore. The soundtrack is loaded with 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran.
