Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore have traditionally fared well in theaters. Their latest outing, Blended, was an exception to that rule, which perhaps explains why Warner Bros. has accelerated the Blended Blu-ray street date.
The Blended Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD versions will all release on Aug. 26, just three months after the film debuted in theaters on May 23. That’s a pretty quick turn, but it’s probably an attempt to maximize earnings for a film that didn’t do as well as expected on the big screen.

Blended was directed by Frank Coraci, who previously collaborated with Sandler and Barrymore on The Wedding Singer. The movie tells the story of two single parents, Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler), who have a disastrous blind date and agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.
The Blended Blu-ray Combo Pack contains the following special features:
- Dick’s Customer Service
- Herlihopps: Basketball Actor
- Adam and Drew: Back Together Again
- Bella Thorne’s Makeover
- Deleted Scenes
The Blended DVD release only includes the last four bonus features on that list.
Blended will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99. The pack will include the film in HD on a Blu-ray Disc, plys a DVD version and a digital version with UltraViolet. Fans can also own Blended on Digital HD on August 26 via purchase from digital retailers.
