Movie Review: Just Go With It

I hesitantly watched Just Go With It last night, with Adam Sandler, Brooklyn Decker, and Jennifer Aniston. I was hesitant because I loathe movies with a plot that revolves around easily avoidable chaos that is caused by one character’s pointless lie.

I could tell from the previews this movie was going to be just that. But I gave it a shot.

For the first hour, I was equal parts annoyed and entertained. But I swear I did not stop laughing the whole time. Even with a storyline that revolved around poop jokes, fake accents, and boob references, something about the dialogue in an Adam Sandler movie is, without fail, FU-NNY!

The last hour was pure pleasure, laughter, and happy endings. Just the way I like my Rom-Coms.

Adam Sandler is so charming in a role that finally does not have him mocking mentally challenged people. And Jennifer Aniston is spot on, hilarious, and beautiful. And Brooklyn Decker sure as shit ain’t going to win an Academy Award, but she’s cute and hot so who cares.

Rent this. If it doesn’t make you laugh out loud, I’ll personally reimburse you for the $1 Redbox fee.

  1. Great review! I definitely agree that it was nice to see Adam Sandler take a different approach to his comedy. I never cared for his insults. Jennifer Aniston was amazing as always, and she still looks fabulous for her age! I am definitely going to be seeing Just Go With It again soon! I know that the Blockbuster Movie Pass was released earlier this week! I am really excited because the Blockbuster Movie Pass will give customers a huge selection of DVDs like Just Go With It, along with TV shows and games by mail. Since it is being offered by DISH Network (who is also my employer), there are 20 channels that are included with the Movie Pass in addition to the thousands of movies and shows that you can stream to your TV or PC! Blockbuster also has many stores that you can exchange DVDs at and Blu-Rays are included! For all that, I think $10 is such a great price. I already signed up for the Blockbuster Movie Pass so I will get to see this awesome movie again!
