A man of few scruples, Henry uses women for his own pleasure. But when he becomes involved with Lucy — and her mental disability — he transforms into a selfless boyfriend who goes to great lengths to love her and help her recover her memory. Unfortunately the quaint love theme is overshadowed by an excessive use of crude humor with lots of gay jokes, sexual innuendo and bad language. In one scene, a quirky, drug-using friend hides nearby a man and his date and encourages him with gestures to make a sexual move on the girl.
“50 First Dates” is a cute movie filled with some funny moments, especially the scenes with animals, but Dove cannot award it the Dove Seal due to the crude humor and bad language.
