While it throws up a few genuine laughs, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are on autopilot in this largely predictable affair.
'Happy' is a lovely, jovial word that becomes something quite vile and abhorrent when followed by the word 'Madison'.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
... Sandler does to Cactus Flower (1969) what he did to Mr. Deeds, and once again the result isn't pretty ...

Just Go With It is an extraordinarily bad match of star and material.
| Original Score: D-
Danny and co.'s elaborate ruse, and the movie's impersonation of a comedy, continues with bad fake accents (Cockney, German), more schtick and a dash of homophobia. But there's still room for sexism!
Will they discover the mutual attraction simmering between them all these years? Will there be 80s music? Will Sandler get hit in the nuts? Have you been in a coma since 1996?
| Original Score: 1/5
Offers several surprises to balance out the predictable moments, and a natural warmth not usually found in anything with Sandler's name on it.
| Original Score: B+
It's funny enough in places and with a few moments of real feeling. Too bad that for the rest of the movie, the bar's been set far too low.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
It's as if everyone involved, with the exception of Kidman, would gladly have you forget the film the moment it ended.
| Original Score: 41/100
This is the ugliest, shoddiest looking movie I've seen in a while.
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.
Just Go With It is an exercise in stagnation.
No. No, I'm not going to just go with it. The title alone of this latest atrocity in the oeuvre of Adam Sandler, Professional Manchild, is an admission that it is absurd on its face, even grading on the Adam Sandler Curve...
Just go with it -- and take it out of here.
...the laughs and likable characters make this a better than average Adam Sandler film.
| Original Score: B-
A wheezing, broken carcass of a romantic comedy.
| Original Score: 3/10
Just Go With It is a long way removed from the French play which was adapted to become Cactus Flower starring Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman and the best supporting actress Oscar-winning Goldie Hawn.
Has Jennifer Aniston's career gone so far off track that she needs to slum in this year's Dennis Dugan-directed Adam Sandler vehicle?
The humorous tangents of Just Go With It are testaments to the fine art of improvisation and of comedy that doesn't take itself overly seriously.
