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!!!"
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.
No me sorprendio a superficialidad de Adam Sandler en una película adinerada de la mala manera y resplandeciente sin ninguna absoluta profundidad, algunos chistes buenos típicos de Sandler pero nada para ver de nuevo.
Again...Why watch a nearly two hour Adam Sandler movie and then write a twenty paragraph review bitching about it?
This movie was fun. Shitty. Horribly full of product placement. Grotesquely predictable. Laughably light.
And by fun I mean a hawaian bikini clad Jennifer Anniston, a hilarious guy that I don't know the name of.
A movie of comforting stupidity, perfect shittines and overall FUN.
I am going to give it three motherfucking stars.
Wanna bitch about it?
I had fun watching this. Really.
I love love loooove this movie.
By Sandler standards it's awesome.
By comedy standards it's awesome.
I can watch it again and again and then again and again and again and not get sick of it. It's my cup of tea. I love the chemistry between Sandler and Aniston. I think they are super adorable in this film as boss and assistant. They hit it off well. Aniston is also very gorgeous in this film, and Sandler is super cute. I love it, and I love Bailee Madison. She's great, we hardly see her anymore. Where did she go?
I still enjoyed it, though not as much as the first time. Utterly ridiculous but provides a lot of laughs. It's no 50 First Dates but it's certainly better than most Adam Sandler movies.
Adam Sandler is king.
All I can remember about this movie is that its title is perfect for it. Obviously, that's not a compliment.
It had the stereotypical formula and style of most Adam Sandler films. It lost for me when the acting seemed so fake. The characters were so plastic.
I am convinced the poor guy's sanity hangs by a thread at times. Kermode is pretty much the reason I…
Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
