Sandler Still Brings The Funny
After more than 20 years in the business and over 20 major films, Adam Sandler still manages to make movie goers laugh. His latest, Just Go With It, hits theaters today.
Growing up in the 90's I have been a fan of Adam Sandler for a long time. From his days on Saturday Night Live, to his early movies like Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, Adam Sandler has been around as long as I have been watching TV and film. I had the privilege last night to attend a special promo screening of the film and I have to say that I did not leave disappointed. It was the normal Sandler formula mixed in with a predictable, yet pretty good story.
The movie stars Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston who are friends who fall in love at the end. If you don't get that, that is going to happen just from watching the trailer than maybe this one isn't for you. Sandler falls for a young girl played by the super hot Brooklyn Decker. You know here from her Sports Illustrated Swim Suit work. If you don't know her work than you are missing out. So the only problem with Sandler and Decker living happily ever after is that he fakes being married to get with girls. This is where Aniston, his assistant in the movie, comes in to pose as his self centered ex wife. One thing leads to another and then Aniston's kids get involved in the scheme and it lands them in Hawaii
where Sandler and Aniston discover that they have been in love with each other all along. The movie also has appearances by comedian Nick Swardson, Nicole Kidman and Dave Matthews. Matthews is surprisingly funny.
If your looking for something Oscar worthy, then why are you going to see an Adam Sandler comedy? All around this is classic Sandler and if you love his other films you will no doubt love this one as well. On a standard letter grade scale from A-F, I give this one a B. It kept me entertained the whole time and gave me some pretty good laughs. Did I mention that Brooklyn Decker is smoking hot? Not to mention Jennifer Aniston is just as beautiful as ever. It has comedy, some real touching moments and most importantly for us guys, immature jokes and plenty eye candy.
