Drew Barrymore welcomed her “cinematic soulmate” Adam Sandler on tonight’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, where the two shared some fun facts while reminiscing about their time working on classic rom-coms like The Wedding Singer and 50 first dates.

During the “Drewber” segment, Barrymore picked Sandler up in her car, where they drove around reflecting on their 24-year friendship. When the talk show host asked if the actor could pick a movie to put it all in one time capsule, he asked, “Like in 50 first dates, I made you a tape every day, remember that?”

“No, I don’t remember that,” Barrymore joked, referring to her character’s short-term memory loss that caused Sandler to try every day to get her to fall in love with him again.

“You’re good!” Sandler replied before proceeding to answer the question. “I worked with this young lady once. I met her at the Newsroom Cafe. She came in, she had stylish hair, a little bit pink. She came in, we jammed a movie idea, we met, we shot, we had the best time ever.”

He was referring to the 1998 rom-com The Wedding Singer – the duo’s first film together. He also shared a glimpse of the iconic airplane scene in which his character plays Robbie Barrymore’s “Grow Old With You” character Julia also known as the epic finale where Billy helps Idol save the day.

“I wasn’t allowed to sing ‘Grow Old With You’ to Drew before we actually sang [taping]he revealed, to which she repeated, “Not once.”

Barrymore went on to say that her reaction to Sandler’s ballad was her “first reaction on film,” adding that she did the same with “Forgetful Lucy.” 50 first dates, when Sandler serenaded her with a ukulele at a Hawaiian zoo.

These two clearly still have chemistry. Let’s get her back on set for another rom-com ASAP!
