    Amidst the wreckage of Just Go With It, Aniston and Sandler have a real chemistry. They should go elsewhere with it.

    All in all, the hit-to-miss ratio of Just Go With It is not so terrible. Which is not to say the movie is anything special.

  • Philip French Guardian [UK] (Top Critic)
    It's a crude, tasteless, ill-timed, hugely dislikable affair.

    Just Go With It is so dispiritingly awful that responsible cinema staff should make audiences remove their ties and shoelaces on their way into the auditorium.

    When Adam Sandler isn't making bathroom jokes or talking like a 2-year-old with a sinus infection, the guy can be disarming.

  • Ann Hornaday Washington Post (Top Critic)
    An egregiously unfunny enterprise that seem less crafted than extruded through the great product-mill that is Hollywood at its most homogenized and soulless.

    "Cactus Flower'' was a silly farce about bachelorhood and sexual liberation, with three interesting performances. The remake is almost two hours of gas.

    Frankly, it's depressing to watch two likable talents pushing such a blatantly empty experience.

    Once again the hoary and apparently ineffable question comes up: Why won't Hollywood remake movies that actually need redoing?

    ...it's predictable, pat, and often a little more vulgar than it's really required to be. Flatly vulgar, at that.

  • Richard Brody New Yorker (Top Critic)
    Sandler has mellowed into an appealingly garlicky, old-school mensch, and Aniston, as a self-sacrificingly practical woman in a race against time, is a genre unto herself.

    The people in this movie are dumber than a box of Tinkertoys.

  • J. R. Jones Chicago Reader (Top Critic)
    Jennifer Aniston has starred in so many lame romantic comedies that she's become an industry punch line, but drop her into an Adam Sandler movie and she comes off like Katharine Hepburn.

    Aniston, taking her cues from her costar, doesn't expend much energy either, but there are glimmers of comic brio. Now and then, she makes a face that suggests she might actually be having some fun.

    There's not much to be said about the majority of jokes here because my mother taught me not to poke at dead things.

    It's all ridiculous, of course, but it's meant to be.

  • Andrew Barker Variety (Top Critic)
    A puerile kiddie-comedy without the anarchic energy, and a schmaltzy romantic comedy without the sweetness.

    Eeryone should be offended by the time-annihilating suckage of this mirth void.

  • Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel (Top Critic)
    25
    It's a rarely amusing movie overwhelmed by grating kids, unfunny sidekicks, halfhearted Sandler funny voices and a co-star who seems more fearful of smiling with each passing year.

  • Peter Howell Toronto Star (Top Critic)

    It's abundantly clear that Sandler is caught in his own memory gap. As he wrestles with an uncomfortable middle age, he's either forgotten or ceased to care about how to make people laugh.

    Sandler and Aniston easily pass the only important test of romantic comedies: We like them and want them to like each other. If only the other cast members were as good.

    I inflicted this movie on myself and now someone's got to pay.

  • Dana Stevens Slate (Top Critic)
    A comedy so noxious it seems the product of deliberate malignity.

    The experience of sitting through Just Go with It, Adam Sandler's umpteenth comedy directed by good buddy Dennis Dugan, is akin to watching a bad sit-com that never ends.

  • Todd McCarthy Hollywood Reporter (Top Critic)
    Predictable, overlong romantic farce has enough sass and sex appeal to get audiences to go with it.
