Movie Review--Just Go With It

The reviews did not sound too promising. The Record advised us to Just Run From It while the Toronto Star's headline read Just Forget It.

The movie was pure entertainment. It was light, funny and totally predictable. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston play the leads in this romantic comedy which involves an unlikely cast of characters, among them Nicole Kidman.

Sandler plays the part of Danny Maccabee, a unmarried, well-off plastic surgeon who has spent two decades pretending to be a mistreated husband so he can score with young, attractive women.  Aniston plays the part of Katherine, his assistant and longtime platonic friend. Sports-Illustrated swimsuit model, Brooklyn Decker, starts as Sandler's latest love interest.

Danny Maccabee's lies catch up with him and he asks Katherine to pose as the wife he is divorcing. A series of comic events ensue and the whole gang ends up on an extended-family trip to Hawaii.

I must admit there were a few annoying parts. Two of the actors had grating, European accents. And the hula smackdown between Aniston and Kidman fell flat.

Watch the trailer.
