A doctor (Adam Sandler) enlists the aid of his loyal assistant (Jennifer Aniston) and her children to help him win the heart of a beautiful woman.
" Adam Sandler plays a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon in Just Go With It, a fumbling comedy directed by Dennis Dugan that could have benefitted from surgical reconstruction. How about some liposuction to siphon off all those lame jokes? "
" When Adam Sandler isn't making bathroom jokes or talking like a 2-year-old with a sinus infection, the guy can be disarming. "
" An egregiously unfunny enterprise that seem less crafted than extruded through the great product-mill that is Hollywood at its most homogenized and soulless. "
" Once again the hoary and apparently ineffable question comes up: Why won't Hollywood remake movies that actually need redoing? "
" It's all ridiculous, of course, but it's meant to be. "
" 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. "
" A very funny romantic comedy that nicely combines Adam Sandler's acerbic sweetness with Aniston's down-to-earth warmth - and that finds an excuse for Aniston to both play an average person and yet dress like a movie star. "
" Aniston, taking her cues from her costar, doesn't expend much energy either, but there are glimmers of comic brio. Now and then, she makes a face that suggests she might actually be having some fun. "
" The central conceit serves the new version well enough, despite the filmmakers' regrettable addition of sundry idiotic distractions. "
" Amidst the wreckage of Just Go With It, Aniston and Sandler have a real chemistry. They should go elsewhere with it. "
" Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston's romantic comedy, idiotic even by their usually low big-screen standards, is stuffed with unpleasant narcissists saying and doing the stupidest, often cruelest things in hope of cheap laughs. "
" Don't even think of going with it. It's the perfect Valentine's date night movie, but only with someone you hate. "
" An early contender for worst movie of the year. If they were showing this on an airplane, I'd as for a parachute. "
" 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. "
" Eeryone should be offended by the time-annihilating suckage of this mirth void. "
" Sandler should know better. "
" Sandler and Aniston easily pass the only important test of romantic comedies: We like them and want them to like each other. If only the other cast members were as good. "
" In Funny People, it took a brush with terminal illness for Sandler to rediscover his craft and his self-respect. One can't help but wonder what it might take in real life. "
" The experience of sitting through Just Go with It, Adam Sandler's umpteenth comedy directed by good buddy Dennis Dugan, is akin to watching a bad sit-com that never ends. "
" All in all, the hit-to-miss ratio of Just Go With It is not so terrible. Which is not to say the movie is anything special. "
