We’ve got you covered with the eight movies to move up in the queue before the end of the month. Fear not; you can start working off that third piece of pie on Monday.

50 First Dates (2004)

A little more than a decade ago, we saw glimmers of an Adam Sandler comic renaissance. First, he took a page from Jim Carrey and went dark in in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love, and then two years later delivered 50 First Dates, a charming (if high-concept) rom-com set on Oahu. Marine veterinarian Henry (Sandler) falls for Lucy (Drew Barrymore), a woman with short-term memory loss, and tries to make a relationship work. It may reek of Sandler trying to get a vacation out of work on a movie, and once gain it features the Happy Madison ensemble players as supporting cast members—but it’s better than just about all of Sandler’s output in recent years.
