How Has Time Changed “50 First Dates” Stars Over The Past 18 Years And What They Do Now

It was 18 years since Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore starred in 50 First Dates. In the film, Drew plays Lucy Whitmore, a girl who sadly suffered short-term memory loss from a car accident. Henry (played by Adam) then finds a way to make her fall in love with him every single day since she can’t remember what happened the day before. They produce a romantic couple that refers to Gere and Roberts in Pretty Woman, Day and Hudson in Lover Come Back, Grant and Loren in Houseboat, and Tracy and Hepburn in Adam’s Rib.

This comedy was released to the audience on February 13, 2004. And the director Peter Segal successfully mixed comedy with romance which attracted the audience and held them to the end of the movie. Therefore, the film has never been out of fashion over the years. But the time has changed the movie’s cast. What does Henry Roth look like and what this “veteran” does for a living now? Let’s see the changes of the cast of “50 First Dates” after 20 years.
