I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
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:
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!!!"
¨Feels good being honest, doesn`t it? Were you telling the truth when you said you might be in love with me? ¨
It actually feels good being honest; unfortunately there is nothing honest about this romantic comedy. The movie is just one big lie after another and I simply couldn`t just go along with it. It made no sense at all and at the same time a five year old could know where this movie was heading from the opening credits. The jokes and gags have been told before by Adam Sandler himself and repeated over and over again in his movies. It was funny in his early Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore days, but listening to the same joke…
Is kind of a proto-Blended with Sandler going on vacation and winning a woman's heart because he's bonding with her kids. The resolution just sort of happens and Kidman is a bit too much, besides that this is a-okay.
Just Go With It is funnier than other films by Adam Sandler (though this is hardly praise to the heavens), and Jennifer Aniston is a real charmer, but it's way too long, overly and needlessly convoluted and overall just fails to satisfy on a romantic or comedic level.
cheesy and shit but still cool not that bad... the cast is probably why I stay though
There's one very funny scene with Kevin Nealon as a plastic surgery addict whose face has all the elasticity of pavement. The scene lasts four minutes. The movie is 117 minutes long.
Let's get this out of the way: is this as good as the early Sandler movies we cherish and love? No. Is this completely formulaic and an identical plot to numerous other romantic comedies? Yes. When it comes to plot, there isn't anything new. The jokes aren't game changing. Sandler is taking an easy route here, and the movie comes off more as a vacation to an exotic place with friends and family for Sandler than anything.
And yet, Sandler phoning it in is still damn funny. The script has enough consistent laughs that while you'll recognize the simplicity of the movie, your laughter will make it all worth the while. Anniston and Decker are both very attractive. Hawaii makes…
Ooh boy... Well, Sandler is actually far less obnoxious than usual in this and the ladies at least look great. As a comedy, well, they forgot to include any jokes but as far as mindless rom-com trash goes I've sadly seen worse and Aniston was good enough to make some of this tolerable.
Nick Swardson continues to be one of history's greatest monsters. I'm still baffled and sad that I live in a world where I know who Nick Swardson is.
Sandler is sleeping through this one, Aniston as usual is thanklessly giving her all, and Nick Swarsdon is once again, The Worst.
I would give this 1 and a half stars, but I love Jennifer Aniston so I bumped the grade up a bit. A bad movie is still a bad movie though, even if it has Jennifer Aniston in it.
This movie just makes me laugh. Such a delight.
Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
On Facebook last night, I discovered a picture that was relentlessly amusing. It read 'replace one word in a movie…
