    A very funny romantic comedy that nicely combines Adam Sandler's acerbic sweetness with Aniston's down-to-earth warmth.

    A loose but fairly snappy remake of the 1969 charmer "Cactus Flower."

    There is some cheap homophobia at the end, and a lot of the kind of misogyny that treats the existence of nonthin, nonrich, nonwhite women as a joke in itself.

    Sandler's puppy-dog persona is just about ready to be put down. From its title on, this is entertainment for extremely lazy audiences.

    Akin to watching a bad sit-com that never ends.

    An Adam Sandler comedy, which means it bears only a superficial relationship to the customary conventions of moviemaking, and also that there's no use getting all worked up about that.

    A comedy so noxious it seems the product of deliberate malignity. Surely the sour, vapid, miserable world of this movie can't reflect any real human being's notion of what love or humor or good storytelling is-not even a Hollywood screenwriter's.

    I think the critics just like to be negative of any Sandler or Aniston film. Thought Jennifer Aniston did a great job and Nicole Kidman was surprisingly funny as well. I laughed the entire time. Fun movie highly recommend it! Expand

    The user reviews are more predictable if you think about it because its the critics job to watch films whereas its our choice to see these films and i think this film is really good. I went to see it with my friend and it was really good and really funny. I am now going to buy it on DVD because i want to watch it again. I dont think this film has any bad points and itss a people pleaser. Expand

    I think that it was great to finally see Jennifer and Adam working together. There was clear definate chemistry which helped their on-screen relationship work well together. It was very cute and very entertaining from beginning to end. Had a fun storyline, Nicole kidman with that bubbly character was a fun touch and Jennifer looked amazing more then ever. I enjoyed it alot and would definately recommend it, for couples, night out with the girls, with the family, it is just alot of fun for everyone. Expand

    "Just Go with It" was not as horrible as I thought it'd be, but it surely was not good either. While only passable, it does manage to keep one entertained for most of the film. Romantic comedies such as these are almost always pretty atrocious and annoying, but this one does have a bit of charm to it. Predictable as can be, with typecast performances (especially by Sandler) it does not offer much new. Aniston shines only at the very beginning of the charade when she is playing the "bad ex," very similar to her role in "Horrible Bosses," which she delivered excellently. The children actors are somewhat annoying, to be honest, while Nicole Kidman is rather entertaining, though not quite as good as she was touted to be. The generic storyline and predictability are numbingly boring at times and rather thin dialogue does provide for a sense that this truly is yet just another romantic comedy with nothing new or revelatory to offer. That being said, it is better than many I have seen before, which does ultimately not say much about how good or bad it is. Judge for yourself - but it won't be all that great. Expand

    This movie is a chore to sit through. The attempts at humour make me cringe and the whole vacation part of the film just seems like an excuse for the actors and crew to go on vacation. Adam Sandler still feels like he's playing the same character he plays in all his other movies so to say his performance is getting stale would be an understatement. The only reason I don't regret watching this movie is that when someone says they've seen the worst movie ever, I can say "you clearly haven't seen Just Go With It" Expand
