DVD & Blu-eay higlights -- 'Blended,' 'Welcome Back, Kotter'
Adam Sandler's films are pretty easily divided into three camps: his juvenile comedies ("Happy Gilmore"), his infrequent forays into drama ("Punch-Drunk Love") and his rom-coms with Drew Barrymore ("The Wedding Singer"). "Blended" falls into the third camp, and it's a welcome, surprisingly endearing comedy about the blending of two families. (DVD, $28.98; Blu-ray, $35.99)
