Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler have an onscreen history of playing couples that America immediately falls in love with.

The pair talked about their decision to make yet another rom-com together.

“Actually, funny enough, we had another lunch and we talked about that it’s time. The clock is ticking and I think it’s time,” Barrymore said.

Sandler responded, “I said, ‘You’re right.’ A couple of months later, ‘Hey Drew, I think I got a good one.'”

The result is Blended, a comedy about single parents who go on a bad date and then have to vacation together in Africa with their families.

To celebrate the movie’s release on May 23, let’s look back at this Hollywood power duo’s special relationship, on- and off-screen.

They first met 16 years ago, when they played a wedding singer and a waitress in The Wedding Singer.

ET asked what they remembered from their initial meeting.

“I remember laughing, enjoying … you had dark hair,” Sandler said.

He also remarked about her being well-liked:

You were cooler than me — no doubt you were cooler than me. … You dressed cool. Girls always were bananas over Drew. The fact that I knew Drew made some ladies think I was cooler than I actually was.

Barrymore explained her interest in working with him:

I was just trying to convince him of my plot, because I was scheming. I was a scheming MacPherson because I knew we were supposed to partner up.
