Good
Entertaining
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler had great chemistry.
Nicole Kidman, Nick Swardson, Brooklyn Decker, Bailee Madison, Griffin Gluck, Dave Matthews all did a fantastic job.
It’s touching.
Great ending.

Bad
Predictable
Too long

Danny (Adam Sandler) pretends to be married to pick up chicks. He took off the ring and left it in his pocket only to be found by Palmer (Brooklyn Decker). He fibs and says that he’s getting a divorce and she wants to meet the wife and so Just Go With It was born.

Just Go With It is as predictable as predictable can get, but it worked well because the fun story had a twist of heart. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s chemistry doesn’t seem possible on paper, but they not only made it work, they made it awesome. During the dinner scene where they exchange what they think about one another I totally forgot how uncouple like they seem. Their witty slaps were funny. I love how Nick Swardson was used. He’s a funny guy. Baliee Madison annoyed me in Brothers, but this time she was adorable and sweet. She and Griffin Gluck share a negotiation scene with Sandler and it is one of the best scenes and one of my favorite parts. I haven’t seen Nicole Kidman in forever and a day. So seeing her again was a treat. Her acting surprise when she first sees Aniston is sarcastically brilliant. Dave Matthews adds an interesting dynamic. He has a way with the coconut.

Predictable film with great lines. I laughed out loud a lot and really loved some of the witty moments. Just Go With It is worth seeing in the theater for simple fun. It appears it’s the best that Crapuary has to offer, so far.
