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.
Sitting down in a packed house to watch a comedy is always an awesome night there was not one seat free in the entire cinema and pretty much as soon as the opening credits started everyone was laughing. JUST GO WITH IT is Adam Sandlers latest flick to hit the big screen via his production house Happy Madison which also co-stars Jennifer Aniston.
I’m a big fan of Adam Sandler I’ve watched every single film he’s ever been in and he always manages to pull off great romantic comedies, granted some of the dialog is sometimes sketchy but honestly if you are walking into an Adam Sandler film looking for bulk loads of substance and intensely deep dialog then really you have to sit back and have a re-think! I will say that his best performance to date will still and I think always will be ‘Punch Drunk Love’ if you haven’t seen it, go rent it!
What I loved about this film was the fact that Sandler and Aniston just worked off each other so perfectly! Something I really didn’t expected walking in and some of the jokes are just down right hilarious! One of the most interesting casting choices for me was Brooklyn Decker who’s usually up and down the catwalk for Victoria Secret or gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated, I did think this was a wrong move but damn I was really impressed, she definitely has some talent! She pulled off the role of Palmer the ever so gorgeous elementary school teacher with ease!
But for me the highlight of the film was Bailee Madison who we have seen in a few films such as ‘Bridge to Terabitia’ and ‘Conviction’ who plays Maggie the daughter of Anistions character who has to join the charade! She is by far the most hilarious in this film, every time she was onscreen I was just shocked by the utter talent this girl has, I think I will be keeping an eye on her career. Nicole Kidman who was another one I thought shouldn’t be in this film did really well also, it just seemed like she was having a fun with the character and it definitely came across on-screen.
The real only thing I was disappointed with, which in hindsight is pretty minor is the fact Rob Schnider wasn’t in the film, there was no “You Can Do It’ moment which he has pretty much done in every single one of Sandlers films, its no real big deal but I just missed it.
JUST GO WITH IT is simply a fun movie and for fans of Adam Sandler films you won’t be disappointed it still brings all the crude humour and the over the top attitude but with a hint of cuteness and luncacy.
JUST GO WITH IT is in cinemas now I give this film 4 out of 5 stars.
