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

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.

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

For one moment, just one moment -- it works.

You can practically feel comedy facepalming itself.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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)

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.

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.

"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.
