Triple-bill of Drew Barrymore dramas. 'In 50 First Dates' (2004), Barrymore stars as Lucy Whitmore, a beautiful woman suffering from acute short-term memory loss. After a car accident several months before, she has been left with a rare brain condition that causes her memory to be totally erased every night when she goes to sleep. Adam Sandler plays Henry Roth, a vet who works at the aquarium in the Hawaiian resort where Lucy is living a quiet life with her over-protective father (Blake Clark) and goofy brother (Sean Astin). Henry usually spends his summers seducing a string of female tourists that he'll never see again - but when he meets Lucy he realises he's found something special, and resolves to give up his promiscuous, non-commital lifestyle. The only problem is, when he meets her again the next day, she hasn't got a clue who he is. Henry embarks on an elaborate quest to win her heart, with the help of his stoner best friend Ula (Rob Schneider). Dan Akroyd makes a cameo appearance as Lucy's doctor. In 'Charlie's Angels' (2000), Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu star as the glamorous crimebusting trio in a big screen adaptation of the hit 1970s TV show. Assigned by their reclusive boss Charlie (voiced by John Forsythe) to investigate the disappearance of Eric Knox, a computer scientist whose revolutionary new invention promises to make him a billionaire, it's not long before the Angels find him hidden away in the headquarters of business rival Roger Corwin (Tim Curry). But things are not what they seem and the Angels soon find themselves using their superior Kung Fu skills and state-of-the-art gadgetry in an attempt to foil a cunning revenge plot. Finally, 'Riding in Cars With Boys' (2001) follows a young Connecticut woman, Beverly Donofrio (Barrymore), and her attempts to get an education and win the freedom to be all that she can be. As a teenager Beverly hopes to go and study at New York University, but when she gets pregnant her parents persuade her to marry the father, Ray Hasek (Steve Zahn), and put aside her plans for higher education. Some years later, Beverly still hopes to attend NYU, but when the chance of a scholarship comes along, it is ruined by Ray's negligence. Will Beverly ever find a way of breaking free from her circumstances and realising her dream?
