Sandler and Aniston lie to get laughs in new film
Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are a match made in comedy heaven in their latest movie, “Just Go With It.” The movie contains another one of Sandler’s outlandish plots, but this time it has a more realistic twist.
The movie centers around one lie and one thing: a wedding ring.
When Danny (Sandler) realizes his wedding ring (which he never got to use since he found out his fiancée cheated on him) attracts women, he decides to use it to his benefit, pretending to be in the middle of a horrible divorce. In typical movie fashion, the women fall for this line and he thinks he has found the perfect trick.
His plan seems to be working until he meets Palmer (Brooklyn Decker), a woman he really likes. She finds the ring in his pocket and demands to meet the woman he claims he is divorcing. Not knowing what to do, Danny, who is a plastic surgeon, turns to his assistant Katherine (Aniston), asking her to be his wife for the day. Always there for Danny, Katherine agrees and this is the beginning of endless lies.
A movie about what happens when one little lie can lead into many, “Just Go With It” is a full-fledged comedy with romance dispersed throughout.
The supporting cast—Nicole Kidman, Nick Swardson, Bailee Madison and Griffin Gluck—are wonderfully funny and talented actors who can be credited with bringing the movie to comedic heights with their funny anecdotes and own sub-plots and lies.
The greatness of the movie is that it is a realistic, 21st century comedy about lies, love and life. It highlights the fact that even though telling a lie may not seem bad at first, it can lead to disasters, which in this case were luckily humorous disasters.
More importantly, it shows that amidst all of the lying, it is possible to find that one person who you would never lie to.
