movies I strongly dislike... ok I hate them and am terrible at explaining why
Just Go with It
Sometimes a guy's best wingman... is a wingwoman
In Just Go With It, a plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant's kids become involved, and everyone heads off for a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives.
No. No, that was bad.
Is Adam Sandler even aware that the term Adam Sandler Movie has become a derogatory term for films? Not just his own either. It works with films that he isn't in. If you ask someone if a film was good and they tell you "Well it was like an Adam Sandler Movie" you then have all the information you need to determine that said film is garbage. Now if Sandler makes a good film you'll get "Yeah it was good, especially for an Adam Sandler Movie". I don't think that's a phrase you'll be hearing that much though.
The film is a remake of the 1969 Cactus Flower. I've never seen Cactus Flower,…
Everything I have to say about this film can be said in one word:
"Your dad tells me you like to go to the bathroom."
This movie has two writers responsible for a screenplay that's a remake of another film that's an adaptation of a play that's a remake of another play that itself had two writers on it. This is a remake of an adaptation of a remake, for a total of six writers across four projects. At what point did it devolve into jokes about poop and old age and obesity and foreign accents, mixed in with truly awful life lessons and toxic superficiality?
I'm normally smart enough to stay away from things like this that I know I won't like, but we were at my friend's house and this was not…
Honestly, you just have to wonder how Adam Sandler keeps getting away with this. Just Go With It is further evidence he's pulling one of the greatest long cons in Hollywood comedy - he's somehow managing to make some of the worst comedic motion pictures in modern cinema while getting paid ridiculous amounts of money and, essentially, playing the same laid back, 'loveable' (read smug, loathsome) goofball every single time. Lazy doesn't even begin to cover this effort.
It only took about 120 seconds, when we first see Sandler's plastic surgeon, wearing a horrendously offensive 'Jew nose' to know this was going to be not just dirge, but possibly a little hateful too. Thankfully it's just dirge, with Sandler ambling…
What the hell did Adam Sandler have on Nicole Kidman to blackmail her into doing this shit?
The title of this film should be changed from "JUST GO WITH IT" ... to ... "JUST GO FUCK YOURSELF, ADAM "SCAM"LER ... YOU ASS-HOLE!!!"
It's another Sandler movie... that the wife loves.
It's not bad.
But I think Blended is a loose remake.
Averge rom-com. Nothing special, but I laughed a couple of times. A few cringe worthy scenes, as expected.

Bahaha that's actually how I got to watch this... oh man
I watched this on Netflix.
I'm a fan of Adam Sandler, quite a fan I am honest. I'm a big fan of his 90's comedies and I must admit while I don't really love the 2000's and his last few ventures there are a lot of people who are die hard fans.
The plot of Just Go With It follows Sandler after overhearing his finance at his wedding admit sleeping with her ex boyfriend and only getting married for money. He decides to run out and ever since has kept his wedding ring to swindle women into thinking his wife is cheating on him and get them to sleep with him. He makes the move on a young blonde but…
I'm not wholly sure why I watched this movie. I can't say I was really expecting much. Maybe a laugh here or there. But it was barely even that. Flat, predictable, obviously just Adam Sandler having a holiday and just so happening to pretend to make a movie at the same time.
It was rather sweet at times though, I'll give it that.
Wht I got to say about "Just Go With It" is okay in some parts of the movie. The performances in this are funny. The directing by Dennis Dugan is okay. The score is okay. Special Effect is okay. "But I can say that this movie is not my favorite tho."
Like Grown Ups, I have seen this movie more than once because they would play it on the movie channel all the timeeeee. The plot is just so fun to watch and follow along with and I guess that kept it from getting tired to me.
As far as Adam Sandler's recent output goes Just go with it has some advantages, there are some funny moments, a surprising appearance from Nicole Kidman, and Jennifer Aniston who has that uncanny ability to keep you watching even if the film is bottom of the barrel garbage. Here Adam Sandler tells a lie, one that requires him to ask his assistant to help assist in said lie. It's essentially a romantic comedy and you know what's going to happen as soon as its premise is set up, it's not great by any means but next to films like Jack and Jill it comes off ok.
Sadly, I saw this movie.
Let's put it that way.
I am convinced the poor guy's sanity hangs by a thread at times. Kermode is pretty much the reason I…
this is the ultimate romantic comedy list . . . for better or for worse. i got the list from…
