Just Go With It

Theatrical Release: February 11, 2011
Just Go With It


On a weekend trip to Hawaii, a plastic surgeon convinces his loyal assistant to pose as his soon-to-be-divorced wife in order to cover up a careless lie he told to his much-younger girlfriend.

Dove Review

Danny (Adam Sandler), a plastic surgeon, was once dumped at the altar so now he tells hard-luck stories and talks about how bad his “wife” has been to him in order to wind up in bed with several women. Then he meets Palmer (Brooklyn Decker), a bright young woman who is caring and with whom he might find lasting happiness. Unfortunately, when she spots a ring on his finger he makes up a lie about going through a divorce and the next thing you know he has to cover up the lie with another one. He gets his beautiful assistant (Jennifer Anniston) to help him but the story takes a twist, which is one of the few really good things I can say about this film and I can’t even say that without plot spoiling. Let’s just say it does have a bit of a happy ending.

Unfortunately for our Dove Foundation families, the film is loaded with sexual comments and innuendos and implied sex between an unmarried couple, not to mention a ton of drinking and some strong language. We can’t award this one our Dove Seal. So why not check out “Gnomeo and Juliet” or “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” with your family this weekend?
