The new Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore movie Blended came out today, and it's been drawing some pretty savage reviews from critics. Currently sitting at 14% on Rotten Tomatoes, it's hardly the most-derided Adam Sandler movie ever (that honor would go to Jack and Jill with 3%) but it's still getting dogpiled on in a way that you don't see with your average studio comedy. We've rounded up some of the meanest quotes from reviews of the movie and gathered them up below, from least-harsh to harshest:

But it also earned $271 million at the international box office, making a sequel inevitable. So far, Grown Ups 2 isn't even living up to the low bar set by the original, with the current Rotten Tomatoes rank currently hovering at 7 percent, and a Metacritic score of only 20/100. Much of the venom is directed at the film's low-brow scatological humor and female objectification, as well the waste [...]
After over two decades on The Tonight Show (and off and back on again), Jay Leno is stepping away from the late night franchise for a second time in February of next year, and his guest last night suggested to Leno on air that he moved to Fox. Sandler, who himself was let go from NBC's late night department in 1995, asked Leno, "So, Jay, retiring buddy?"
