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.

Critic Reviews for Just Go with It

All Critics (136) | 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.

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

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.

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.

Aniston appears just as disgusted with these characters as we are. She's never been so relatable.

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.

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'.
