On Thursday, May 22, Drew Barrymore appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote Blended and, despite the rain, she made sure to take time to sign autographs with fans, especially those who were in town for Fleet Week.
Unfortunately for Drew, Blended opened to only $14.2 million this weekend, making it one of the worst opening weekends of any Adam Sandler movie. The movie’s poor reviews (it only had a 15% rating on Rotten Tomatoes) and lack of press may have been the cause, though some speculate the public has simply had enough of Sandler’s specific brand of comedy.
