Movie Trailer: Adam Sandler in ‘Just Go With It’

- Advertisement -

Are you getting sick of generic Adam Sandler romantic comedies yet? Obviously movie studios are not. Sony has just released the trailer for Just Go With It, starring Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker, Nicole Kidman, Nick Swardson, and Mr. Funny Guy himself, Adam Sandler. This film is directed by Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Happy Gilmore), which doesn’t say too much from that array of previous works, but it doesn’t mean this is a total throw away.

Aniston and Sandler seem to have a good chemistry, but what really matters is if the relationship between Sandler and Decker can be realized, which I am a tad skeptical about. Could Sandler realize he loves Aniston more? I don’t think this movie will go that deep. It looks cute, but nothing makes me want to run to the theater screaming for joy.

Synopsis: A plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant 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.

Sounds pretty elaborate doesn’t it? How is Adam Sandler going to get out of this one? Maybe you’ll find out Valentine’s Day weekend next year.

    How many romantic comedies do you think Sandler has done? I only count two: The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates.

      I would count Little Nicky, Anger Management, Funny People (Romantic Dramedy), Chuck and Larry, Spanglish, Big Daddy, Zohan, Click, Mr. Deeds, The Waterboy. All of these movies contain some sort of love interest tying into the main plot.

        Well, I’m not including Funny People or Spanglish or Punch-Drunk Love since they aren’t one of his normal films.

        A lot of regular comedies have a love interest that ties into the main plot. What separates Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates (and this) from the rest of them is that the love interest/romantic angle *is* the main plot. Maybe you could count Mr. Deeds since that romantic angle is more prominent than the others you mentioned, but not as prominent as the two I mentioned.
