The rom-com 50 First Dates celebrates the 20th anniversary of the film that was released on February 13, 2004; it was, and still is, the perfect movie for Valentine's Day. Walking Dead's Leah, played by Lynn Collins, has a small but memorable role in the film.

Directed by Peter Segal, known for the comedy films Tommy Boy and Anger Management, the film stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, with Rob Schneider, Sean Astin, Lusia Strus, Blake Clark, and Dan Aykroyd in supporting roles. The film was the second collaboration of Sandler and Barrymore after The Wedding Singer but before Blended. They won an MTV Best on Screen Team award for 50 First Dates.

Filmed in Oahu, Hawaii, on the Windward Side and the North Shore, the story tells of Henry Roth (Sandler), a womanizing marine veterinarian, who falls for Lucy (Barrymore), an art teacher who has amnesia and forgets everything each night when he goes to sleep. When Henry meets her and discovers her ailment, he vows to win her over each day.

Collins portrays Lisa AKA Linda, one of Henry's conquests, who he tricks into thinking he is an secret agent, or intelligence operative, as he prefers. Below is her scene.

The soundtrack for 50 First Dates is a fantastic compilation of 80s and 90s covers, including "Love Song" by the Cure performed by 311, whose frontman Nick Hexum produced the soundtrack. The covers are primarily reggae-style, giving old songs new life.
