Aniston and Sandler deliver comedy gold
Jennifer Aniston is one of the best actresses of our time and I will watch any movie or show that she is in. Back in 2011, when I heard that she was going to star in a movie with Adam Sandler, I was not immediately thrilled.
I normally don’t like Adam Sandler in movies, but “Just Go With It” is one of the best romantic comedies I have seen in a long time.
Aniston and Sandler were a perfect fit for their respective roles, Katherine and Danny. The two characters have been co-workers for a long time and are very close with each other. This movie is their love story.
Brooklyn Decker and Nick Swardson both played supporting characters and were great additions to the cast. Decker played the younger girlfriend of Sandler, Palmer, that he spends the majority of the movie trying to impress. Swardson plays the cousin, Eddie, the comedic relief in the movie and most of his jokes are delivered well and easily received.
Bailee Madison and Griffin Gluck play Aniston’s kids, Maggie and Michael. The two cause trouble throughout the movie, but also add a little bit of sensitivity to the comedy based movie.
Nicole Kidman plays a somewhat villain, Devlin Adams, that Aniston competes with throughout the movie. Kidman and Aniston working together in a movie is a combination I never knew I needed until I watched them together.
Dennis Dugan has directed other Sandler movies and knows how to use Sandler’s humor to make the best movie possible. Dugan created a funny and romantic movie with the star power of Aniston, Sandler and Kidman.
“Just Go With It” is filled with funny one-liners, a few crude jokes, and a happy ending that all romantic comedies need. I have watched this movie probably 20 times since it has been released and still laugh at all of the jokes. This movie is a hit in its own time and will become a classic as the years go on.
