Warner Bros. has created some “Blended” games. Here are the links:
OSTRICH RUN GAME
Users play as Jim riding on an ostrich racing Lauren’s son at the Blended resort. Players need to control the ostrich to jump over obstacles in an effort to make it to the finish line first.
SAFARI ADVENTURE GAME
Users play as Jim and must guide his ATV though the African savannah while dodging obstacles and collecting power-ups before time runs out. Game is playable on desktop, smartphones and tablets.
Lauren is parasailing and it is up to the player to land her safely on the target by moving the mouse up and down. Players need to stay alert to avoid obstacles in the safari.
OSTRICH RIDE GAME
Players must keep Jim from falling off the ostrich by moving their mouse left and right. If Jim leans too far to the left or right and it’s game over.
After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Drew Barrymore) and Jim (Adam Sandler) 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.
“Blended” marks the third collaboration between stars Sandler and Barrymore, following their successful onscreen pairings in the hit romantic comedies “The Wedding Singer” and “50 First Dates.”
The film also stars Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”) as Lauren’s best friend, Jen, and Joel McHale (TV’s “Community”) as her unreliable ex-husband, Mark. Kevin Nealon (“Weeds”) and Jessica Lowe (funnyordie’s “RobotDown”) star as Eddy ad Ginger, an overly romantic couple who are also vacationing at the resort, and Terry Crews (“The Expendables 2”) stars as the resort’s singing host. Dan Patrick (ESPN SportsCenter) appears as Jim’s boss, Dick; and Shaquille O’Neal as his coworker, Doug.
Playing Jim’s three daughters are Bella Thorne (Disney Channel’s “Shake it Up”), Emma Fuhrmann and Alyvia Alyn Lind. Kyle Red Silverstein and Braxton Beckham appear as Lauren’s two sons.
“Blended” was directed by Frank Coraci, who previously collaborated with Sandler and Barrymore on “The Wedding Singer” and also directed Sandler in the hit comedies “The Waterboy” and “Click.” The screenplay is by Ivan Menchell & Clare Sera. The film was produced by Mike Karz, Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo, with Barry Bernardi, Josie Rosen, Tim Herlihy, Allen Covert and Steven Koren serving as executive producers.
Collaborating with Coraci behind the scenes were director of photography Julio Macat (“Pitch Perfect”), production designer Perry Andelin Blake (“The Wedding Singer,” “Here Comes the Boom”), editor Tom Costain (“Grown Ups”) and costume designer Christine Wada (“Bridesmaids”). The music was composed by Rupert Gregson-Williams.
