    “Blended” is much better than the reviews have indicated.
    Yeah, the humor is too crude and obvious (it’s Sandler, what do you expect?), and the sentimentality is laid on with a trowel.
    But it works–and it does work; I even got misty-eyed a few times–because of the undeniable chemistry between Drew and Adam. She really does bring out the best in him.
    It’s flopping in theaters, but I predict it’s going to do very well on home video. And become a cable perennial.
    It’s sort of this generation’s “Yours, Mine and Ours” or “With Six You Get Eggroll,” neither of which is a “good” movie. Yet, like “Blinded,” they’re kind of irresistible, too.

A statement from David Chase’s representative, Leslee Dart:

A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying,“ Tony Soprano is not dead,” is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true. As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, “Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.” To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of THE SOPRANOS raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.

“By the time the sounds of the Von Trapp children warbling ‘Silent Night’ drift through The Giver, you may find yourself wondering what fresh movie hell this is. In truth, the enervating hash of dystopian dread, vague religiosity and commercial advertising-style uplift is nothing if not stale. Adapted from Lois Lowry’s book for young readers, the story involves an isolated society that, with its cubistic dwellings, mindless smiles, monochromatic environs and nebulous communitarianism, seem modeled on a Scandinavian country or an old Mentos commercial.”
