Just Go With It

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. Sandler is a cosmetic surgeon who's always posed as a married man to attract women; after meeting the blond hottie of his dreams, he persuades Aniston, his office manager, to pose as his wife so he can persuasively divorce her. The story originated as a French play and was later turned into Cactus Flower (1969), a Hollywood film scripted by Billy Wilder's partner in crime, I.A.L. Diamond; watching Aniston's sharp verbal timing, you wonder if this might have been a great comedy without Sandler and his Botox gags. Nicole Kidman has a supporting comic role as the office manager's "frenemy" from college, another reason to keep up the ruse, and Kidman's frenetic performance makes you appreciate Aniston’s deft touch even more. Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups) directed.
