Just Go with it
Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, Nicole Kidman
Danny (Sandler) is a plastic surgeon and the film’s bad boy. He fakes being married so he can pick up chicks for one night stands, and save himself from ever getting his heart broken. But as we’ve seen before in this classic rom com theme, the bad boy is really a very nice guy underneath the lying exterior.
Danny hooks up with Palmer (Brooklyn Decker). He really connects with this one, so decides to give up the fake marriage gig. But how to explain the fake wedding ring? He tries to get himself out of a tricky situation but ends up digging himself into a bigger hole – he creates a fake family with his lovely assistant/receptionist, Katherine. The role of Katherine is expertly played by Jennifer Aniston who does a sterling job at being a divorced single mum. When Nicole Kidman makes a timely entrance into the movie, Danny and Katherine proceed to dig themselves further into the hole.
There’s a very good supporting role played by Nick Swardson who is Danny’s best friend, Eddie. Watch out for the scene with the sheep which is the funniest bit in the movie.
There is a lot of quick dialogue in this flick, so listen carefully – no eating crisps or you’ll miss something. I was pleasantly surprised with how well Aniston and Sandler worked together. I like 21st Century Sandler roles better than his older roles – he’s less of a buffoon and more of an intelligent, funny, likeable person. This is a great rom com and I highly recommend it.
