Borrowing from the superior "GROUNDHOG DAY", Drew Barrymore's character, Lucy, suffers from short-term memory loss, and can't remember the day before upon waking up. So, when Adam Sandler's character, Henry, realizes she's the perfect girl for him, and is resigned to trying to make Lucy fall in love with him each and every day.

Sandler has really reigned in the obnoxious jokes for this film. Most of the adolescent humor is given to sidekicks and while Sandler never completely pulls off the lovable guy role, at least he's not annoying. 

SONY has retained the original 2.35:1 aspect ratio for this release. It's not as dazzling as "THE 5TH ELEMENT", but it's extremely impressive. The detail is excellent throughout. Colors are extremely solid and there's no grain.  It's surprising as to how much more vibrant the colors appear on "BLU-RAY" than on dvd, making the exotic Hawaiian locales really stand out.

SONY has included a PCM 5.1 mix and it really stands out above the dvd mix.  While it's still disappointing to find such little surround use, there's incredible detail in the front soundstage. The music tracks, always big in Sandler films, gets to really shine here, with terrific fidelity. Dialogue sounds better than it did on the standard dvd as well.

Most of the extras found on the dvd have been carried over here on "BLU-RAY" including audio commentary with Sandler, Barrymore and the film's director, featurettes and deleted scenes.
