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) Sony

Critic Reviews for Just Go with It

All Critics (135) | Top Critics (33) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (109) | DVD (7)

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.

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

Sandler has mellowed into an appealingly garlicky, old-school mensch, and Aniston, as a self-sacrificingly practical woman in a race against time, is a genre unto herself.

The silly story and crummy writing leave Just Go With It feeling a bit unfinished and never quite hitting the right level, like a haphazard hodgepodge of poor ideas.

Full Review… | July 24, 2013
We Got This Covered

It achieves a rancidness far beyond all of Sandler's other misogynistic mash-ups of groin kicks, poop jokes and juvenile, homophobic characters.

Movie Nation

You can practically feel comedy facepalming itself.

Full Review… | September 28, 2012

Brooklyn Decker seems to have been cast primarily for the way she fills out her bikini, especially in slo-mo. Her cleavage receives so much camera time, it deserves its own billing.

American Profile

The film is far from original, (but) as a whole, Just Go With It has enough easy charm to pull you through.

Full Review… | September 1, 2011
The National

Full of both funny lines and, most importantly, funny people, "Just Go With It" is Sandler's most accessible film in a long time.

Full Review… | August 16, 2011

I have to warn you, there are two precocious children in it of the species that only exist in Hollywood's imagination, and they are truly horrible.

Honolulu Star-Advertiser

It's just a bunch of jerks running around being classless, unfunny and treating domestic workers poorly.

Full Review… | May 20, 2011

... forgettable update of an equally forgettable 1969 farce called 'Cactus Flower.'

Full Review… | May 4, 2011

As predictable as it is, there's a simplicity and honesty to it that make it surprisingly enjoyable. And it actually made me like Jennifer Aniston again. (Fresh - just)

The Mercury

It's the kind of movie that makes you wonder why anyone decided it was good enough to show to the public, the kind that makes you want to repeatedly hit yourself in the face with a hammer. You'd have more fun doing that, too.

Full Review… | April 4, 2011

While Just Go With It never descends into full-on unfunniness -- the absurd interjections of Nick Swardson as a German sheep trader named Dolph Lundgren see to that -- it seriously struggles to draw laughs consistently.

Herald Sun (Australia)

"Just go with it" seems to be a mantra from the film-makers; a pleading cry as they beg the audience to ignore the increasingly insane and illogical plot manoeuvres.

Full Review… | April 1, 2011
The Standard

What would otherwise have been a routine, colour-by-numbers romantic comedy actually turns out to be one of Adam Sandler's best films. And yes, you read that right.

Audience Reviews for Just Go with It

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'.

It's your typical romance film. Just Go with It isn't memorable or humourous in any way. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are certainly not a cute screen couple or are that enthusiastic in any way. They showed me very unconvincing performances attatched to a very thin plot. Instantly forgettable.

Loosely based off the 1969 film Cactus Flower, the title of the latest Adam Sandler comedy feels like a transparent plea from the screenwriters and Sandler. He plays a womanizing plastic surgeon that has bedded many women under the false pretenses of being married to horrible women. Now he's in a dilly of a pickle because has to convince the new hottie in his life (Brooklyn Decker, former swimsuit model, clearly chosen for her acting "talents") that he is getting a divorce from his fake wife, played by his assistant (Jennifer Aniston). Her real-life kids become Sandler's fake kids, and the whole lot goes along for a Hawaiian vacation. At various points characters will talk about how confusing the lies are becoming. I wish. Just Go with It doesn't have the ambition to embrace its farcical premise, instead settling on rom-com gooeyness even though most of the characters are lying jerks. Sandler's been tricking women into sleeping with him for decades, but we're supposed to view him as a good guy? What's the point of throwing in Nicole Kidman, of all people, as Aniston's college nemesis if the film doesn't do anything with the different pretenses? Things don't get too complicated because the characters really only assume one identity and one story, blunting escalating comic mishap. While Sandler and Aniston have a surprisingly natural chemistry together, and some of the jokes are decent in conception, Just Go With It is a wearisome rom-com weighed down with false sentiment and kicks to the groin.
