Just Go With It starts off with a Wedding Singer-looking Adam Sandler with a ridiculous huge nose (like, way over the top, totally unnecessary but still pretty funny) overhearing his bride-to-be badmouthing him and confessing she cheated on him the previous night minutes before they are supposed to walk down the aisle. So, he goes to the bar to nurse his emotional wounds and a hot woman (Minka Kelly-I think she is drop-dead gorgeous!) sees his wedding ring and assumes he is married, which makes her want to sleep with him (and his big nose) immediately.
Fast-forward fifteen years and Adam Sandler's character is still using the "I'm married" trick to score ladies. His latest conquest actually gets upset that he is "married" when she finds his prop ring. Thus he has to come up with a fake wife and turns to his assistant (he's a plastic surgeon--cue the obvious superficial connection between his career and dating habits!) and confidante played by a refreshingly quirky, slightly dowdier, and way more relaxed Jennifer Aniston. I have to admit, I am not usually a big Aniston fan in movies (loved Rachel though!) because she just seems so darn uptight and superficial. This was the first movie she just felt real or maybe I should say less contrived. And the banter between her and Adam Sandler appeared totally natural and if anything, I'm thinking they did a lot of improv that found its way into the final cut.
So, Adam Sandler plays another guy with deep-down a heart of gold who ends up doing the right thing (I'm not going to tell you what that thing is though!) and Aniston plays a likable character in a fun, slightly far-fetched situation which adds to the comedy plot. This movie and Adam Sandler in general encourages me to find the humor in everything and go for the big laughs in my own writing.
