Just Go With It

Actors: /

Adam Sandler produces and stars in the romantic-comedy, Just Go With It, which is based on the 1969 film, Cactus Flower. Danny (Adam Sandler) is a plastic surgeon who wears a wedding ring in order to attract women, but his plan falls apart when his much younger, beautiful girlfriend named Palmer (Brooklyn Decker) asks him why he wears a wedding ring. Of course he lies (which is the basis of most Adam Sandler movies) and says he’s married but soon to be divorced. Then Palmer announces that she insists on meeting his soon to be ex-wife. (Why? So he has another reason to lie.) Danny asks his assistant Katherine (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his ex-wife and to act like her two children are his. One of the kids waits until Palmer is nearby when he tells Danny he wants to go to Hawaii. Not wanting to look bad, Danny takes the whole group on a trip. As if all of this isn’t enough, they meet one of Katherine’s college friends named Devlin (Nicole Kidman) and her husband, Ian Maxtone Jones (Dave Matthews) in Hawaii – more lies – and Danny begins having second thoughts about Palmer. Everybody knows this is going to be a formulaic, conventional rom-com with raunchy sight gags and funny one-liners. (Yes, all of that happens.) A plus for the guys is a little skin from the girls in Hawaii but what do you expect with Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker as part of the cast. There’s also a scene with Jennifer Aniston in a tiny bikini in front of a big waterfall with my wife teasing, “Ha, ha you can’t see that!” (That’s mean to do to a blind guy.) The support cast was great with most of the jokes hitting their mark and the audience laughing most of the time. To really enjoy this film put your brain in neutral like I did. I give this film a B- rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
