ADAM SANDLER’S “JUST GO WITH IT” EMBARRASSES EVERYONE INVOLVED
Someone please tell Adam Sandler that he’s not a teenager any more – he’s 44 years old and most of his fans aren’t so young either. His new movie “Just Go With It” (he produced it) seems to be a romantic comedy aimed at 11 year old boys obsessed with bathroom jokes. This has to be one of the lamest scripts in Hollywood history and a huge embarrassment to all the actors involved. It’s a shame, because likeable Adam and Jennifer Aniston actually make an appealing onscreen couple, but all the flat juvenile jokes destroy any “romantic” notions. The scenery and locations are lush, but every dumb comment and contrived situation causes viewers to wince. Both Sandler and Aniston deserve better and these unspeakably bad writers should consider other vocations. Perhaps Adam should consult Steve Martin about how an SNL comic can age gracefully.
