On Facebook last night, I discovered a picture that was relentlessly amusing. It read 'replace one word in a movie…
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:
The title of this film should be changed from "JUST GO WITH IT" ... to ... "JUST GO FUCK YOURSELF, ADAM "SCAM"LER ... YOU ASS-HOLE!!!"
I can't believe I'm saying this but... JACK AND JILL was better.
As with many Adam Sandler movies, helps if you're high.
As usual, I went into this with low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by quite a number of laugh-out-loud moments. The plot didn't totally suck, either, but it might be because it's a loose remake of the award-winning The Cactus Flower. Am I crazy for thinking that Sandler and Aniston had good chemistry? I tend not to think Sandler has good chemistry with any of his leading ladies, but these two riffed off each other really well and their attraction was believable. Nick Swardson was genuinely funny, perhaps for the first time (in anything I've seen him in).
Yes, it's an excuse for Adam Sandler to go to Hawaii. But there's also a story. It might not be a great story. The characters might be obnoxious. I still enjoyed it enough, and could see myself watching it again at some point.
What is wrong with me, I went with it. There was no need for this to be 2 hours though, oh wait, we had to watch them have fun in Hawaii while I sat in my dark room >:(
Still fun enough. Light hearted and funny stuff.
Very strange documentary about Dave Matthews struggling to sink a melon into Nicole Kidman's cleavage using only his own nose.
5 stars for Jen Aniston's bod.
Typical Sandler-Aniston film. Very predictable. In general it's funny, although sometimes it's a little bit boring.
Laugh out loud Funny!
Egregious. Worse than you've heard. Half a star because I can't take it any lower. It's always nice to see Jennifer Aniston, but shitty to watch her mooning over Adam Sandler's worst character to date.
