Danny is a plastic surgeon who, in stereotypically male style, lies to a beautiful woman about having children and an ex-wife in the hopes of getting her attention. Recruiting his office manager to fill the role, Danny is left with unexpected consequences that are often hysterical.
Adam Sandler (Danny), Jennifer Aniston (Katherine), Nicole Kidman (Devlin), Nick Swardson (Eddie), Brooklyn Decker (Palmer), Bailee Madison (Maggie), Griffin Gluck (Michael), Dave Matthews (Ian), Kevin Nealon (Adon).
Just Go with It starts off with some good humor as it prepares to be a typical Sandler flick. Fortunately it isn’t quite a typical Sandler flick with a bit more depth than his usual offerings. The plot is pretty simple and the Happily Ever After ending can be seen coming a mile away but the journey getting there is punctuated with some good laughs along with an emotion or two thrown in for giggles.
Acting was amazingly solid in this film. Sandler and Aniston seem to have good chemistry and even played well off Kidman. Swardson and Decker also did well supporting. Bailee Madison was absolutely incredible. The raw talent in this little girl is wonderful, keep your eye out for her in the future. Even Dave Matthews, yes that one, did a decent job supporting.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were about what you would expect from a bigger budget Sandler flick, while the natural backgrounds were better than usual. Effects were minimal but nicely done. Dialogue was good throughout with nice comedy alongside solid drama. Sound was good and the soundtrack was amazing with interesting mix tracks from Sting.
Overall Just Go with It is a nicely done Romantic Comedy with a good blend of Sandler humor, quality acting, and mild drama. Teens will probably enjoy this the most, along with genre fans.
With some crude sexual humor, partial nudity, mild foul language, and drug references this should be fine for teens and above.
