“Sometime you need a girl, to get the girl.”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “In ‘Just Go With It,’ a plastic surgeon (Adam Sandler), romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant (Aniston) to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant’s kids become involved, and everyone heads off for a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives.”

…[2/4]… flimsy rom-com farce… potty jokes, sex jokes, breast-implant jokes, bratty-kid jokes, and sheep-CPR jokes…
—Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
…this cinematic excursion starts out as a foul, putrid, unfunny mess … and never gets better. …
—Paul Asay, Plugged In
…passive-aggressive, naughty but nice, sometimes obnoxious and occasionally quite funny late-winter romantic comedy… The road to true love is paved with a whole lot of lying…
—A.O. Scott, The New York Times
…[1/4] …rarely funny… The people in this movie are dumber than a box of Tinkertoys. …
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
…The film won’t have you rolling in the aisles, but several scenes with a surprise co-star will gently tickle your ribs. …Nothing onscreen is believable, nor is it worth the effort of suspending disbelief. “Just Go With It” is not only the title, but the attitude that viewers must bring to every preposterous scene.
—Colin Covert, Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune
…[1½/4] …It’s a rarely amusing movie overwhelmed by grating kids, unfunny sidekicks, half-hearted Sandler funny voices and a co-star who seems more fearful of smiling with each passing year. …
—Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
