Just Go With It

Just Go With It ~ While Adam Sandler is no longer somewhat king of the box office, he seems to still be making the same kind of movies. Here he's a plastic surgeon and liar who needs to continue the lie and enlists his assistant (Jennifer Aniston) and her kids to help. The lies escalate as one might expect and hilarity ensues. And, spoilers, there's also the prerequisite heartwarming ending.

Sandler's character's occupation makes for many amusing sight gags. That and Aniston's kids are the funniest parts of the movie, lots of comedic talent here. The soundtrack, composed of more than a few 1980s Police songs and mashups, is also fun. It's just too bad that the actual soundtrack (at least as far as I can find) doesn't have any of the mashups.

The really bad part, other than it being a Adam Sandler movie (and quite honestly, he's not so bad in this), is that he and Jennifer Aniston have zero chemistry together. They try, they're desperate, but it never happens. And it's not the fault of the script, the dialogue would have worked with two other actors.

Just Go With It is a nice distraction if there's nothing else on. It's not great, but it's not horrible either, heh, just go with it.
