Just Go with It (2011)



Critic Consensus: Just Go With It may be slightly better than some entries in the recently dire rom-com genre, but that's far from a recommendation.

Movie Info

In Just Go With It, a plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, 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. -- (C) Sonymore

Critic Reviews for Just Go with It

All Critics (138) | Top Critics (33)

Jennifer Aniston has starred in so many lame romantic comedies that she's become an industry punch line, but drop her into an Adam Sandler movie and she comes off like Katharine Hepburn.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

The central conceit serves the new version well enough, despite the filmmakers' regrettable addition of sundry idiotic distractions.

Time Out
Top Critic

An egregiously unfunny enterprise that seem less crafted than extruded through the great product-mill that is Hollywood at its most homogenized and soulless.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Amidst the wreckage of Just Go With It, Aniston and Sandler have a real chemistry. They should go elsewhere with it.

It's all ridiculous, of course, but it's meant to be.

Arizona Republic
Top Critic

The film is indeed predictable and juvenile, and doesn't so much lapse into clichés as unabashedly dive in.

Audience Reviews for Just Go with It

A fairly serviceable love-was-right-in-front-of-me story. Brooklyn Decker plays hot but nice to a tee (faint praise), and Jennifer Aniston is a reliable voice of reason, but the true standout is young Bailee Madison as Adam Sandler's pretend daughter. Her mile-a-minute-British-theatre-kid schtick is overbearing yet perfect. The movie really revs up with the hula dance and coconut passing competition - featuring wild cameos by Nicole Kidman and Dave Matthews - and even Aniston and Sandler generate some rollicking chemistry.

Alice Shen

Super Reviewer

A surprisingly amusing romcom that's enjoyable with a good cast. Even Sandler doesn't annoy me, even in Anistons age she still has it.

Film Crazy

Super Reviewer

Just Go with It, isn't really a bad movie, but sometimes could be unfunny and terrible silly, just like the character Eddie and present some romantic cliches. Interesting, but not a good remake of 'Cactus Flower'.
