Just Go With It
Q: What’s the movie about?
A: A guy who pretends to be married to get girls (Adam Sandler) meets a woman he actually likes (Brooklyn Decker), and is forced to prove that he's getting divorced from his fake wife (Jennifer Aniston).
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker, Nick Swardson, Bailee Madison, Griffin Gluck, Nicole Kidman, Dave Matthews, Kevin Nealon, Rachel Dratch, Allen Covert, Dan Patrick, Minka Kelly
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. The leads have amazing chemistry and we really believe all the reasons they need to end up together, but the set-up and the make-up are laughable.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: In the most random of places, hidden amongst the standard Sandler fare, are a few subtle clever moments that may induce laughter. What won't make you laugh is the standard Sandler fare, and everything Nick Swardson does.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: No, but Dave Matthews does a thing with his ass that I can never unsee.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: Title I'm Most Likely Not to be able to Recall in 2 Months, when Someone Asks Me What this Movie was Called.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: Jennifer Aniston blew my socks off in this role. Her comic timing is not a fluke. Nor, I might add, is that of Nicole Kidman, who really needs to do more funny roles, like this.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Dennis Dugan directs almost all of Adam Sandler's films. And yet, with all that experience, his style never seems to improve.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: It's patchy. It has good parts, surrounded by tons of missed potential. But I personally love the message about why it's worthwhile to date women your own age.
Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?
A: Off the top of my head, here are some better titles than Just Go With It:
--My Wife Wants Me to Marry You
--Shooting a Movie is a Very Good Excuse to Go to Hawaii, Even When the Excuse Used to Get the Characters there is Ridiculously Unbelievable.
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
A: Just Go With It Trailer
