From the birth of hip hop to Madonna’s influence on fashion.

IT HAS BEEN reported that Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are putting the old show back on the road, and reuniting for a third film together.

The pair appeared on screen together previously in 50 First Dates, and of course, The Wedding Singer which was as much history lesson as it was entertaining rom-com.

From music, to fashion to technology, it was a truly enlightening piece of film.
