Just Pillow Talk’s Birthday Nightmare: 50 First Dates (2004)

Oh deary, deary me.

He’s clearly in trouble with the wife, as he’s been forced to bump up a “chick friendly” rom com up the order to get him out of the doghouse. Sadly, the film in question is a romantic comedy that manages to be singularly unfunny.
