Just Go With It

A plastic surgeon romances a much younger schoolteacher and 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.

Despite what other reviewers are saying about the newest Sandler film, I enjoyed it. The story may be far-fetched and outrageous but it was funny, fresh, and Adam Sandler. He is one of my favorite comedians and his movies are hilarious 9 times out of 10. This happened to be one that I enjoyed. At first, the idea of watching Jennifer Aniston alongside one of my favorite comedians was less than pleasing, but it turns out that Sandler actually gave her a funny part where I was not wanting to scratch my eyes out. The child actors were funny and witty and the funny one-liners were actually funny. I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed "Grown-Ups". 3 out of 4 stars.
