    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 have no idea what's up with these critics. Sandler movies are damned funny! Sure, the pacing is off sometimes, but I laughed my ass off throughout this film. Decker is awesome (yes, she can act), Anniston rocks as usual (and looks amazing...), and the cameos are twisted. Totally worth seeing. Loved seeing pretty much the whole cast of Grandma's boy back in action. There's a little something for everybody - seriously. Expand

    "Just Go with It" has major problems with its lack of wit and exhausted repeated jokes, but thankfully, Aniston's performance is able to boost up the comedy in the film; adding to an amount that ranks higher than many other films that try the same formula of comedy as of this film With Sandler's and Aniston's connection being believable, "Just Go with It" manages to hit the mark for several adults and teens to enjoy. Despite the issues with telling a story without the sidetrack and silly moments that were unnecessary, "Just Go with It" is enjoyable enough to be recommended to adults, and older teens. Expand

    It is quite stupid and has way too many gross out gags to even be considered good. But you laugh every once in a while even though you feel wrong doing it. I give this movie 29%. 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
