A Week of Reviews - A Movie


My second review of the week is a movie.


About a week and a half ago, I got together with a group of girlfriends for movie night in my neighbor's theatre room.  (Now why don't I have a theatre room? - I have to work on that...)

Anyway, we ended up watching "Just Go With It".  I must say I was pleasantly surprised!  I remember seeing the previews for the movie and while it looked cute, I didn't feel compelled to run out and see it. 
But let me tell you, it was adorable! 

The cast was entertaining and likable.  Adam Sandler is always a sweetheart in my opinion and he didn't do any of that silly voice thing he does that can be annoying sometimes!  Jennifer Aniston was just darling as usual.  How can you not love her?  Nicole Kidman was absolutely hysterical and prettier than ever.  I kept wishing for her to show up in more scenes.  I have liked her even more since she has been married to Keith Urban!  How can she not be the most wonderful person!  The best friend, played by Nick Swardson was a little irritating but I found myself laughing out loud at his silliness.  Brooklyn Decker, who played Adam Sandler's character's new girlfriend was sweet and played her role well.  And the kids in the movie were quite funny!

Oh and to top it off, Sting/Police music played throughout the movie! 
I wonder if there is a movie soundrack?

The plot was a bit predictable
 and the ending was obvious,
but we all laughed our heads off and enjoyed every minute of it! 

If you are looking for a very funny romantic comedy,
definitely check this movie out.
You will not be disappointed!

Oh - how could I forget...
part of the movie was filmed at the Grand Wailea
in Maui, Hawaii!
No wonder I loved it!

Do you have any romantic comedies to recommend?

  1. I wouldn't mind a movie room myself, especially since I have been stuck at home with a nasty cold these past 5 days! I haven't heard of this movie, but I always enjoy Adam Sandler. His movie, The Wedding Singer, has to be on my top ten list!

  2. I love romcoms, and I had completely forgotten about this movie. I love Adam Sandler (ever since his SNL days) so I have to add it to my list!

    Have you seen 27 Dresses? It's a few years old, but I loved that movie. Also, believe it or not, I quite liked When in Rome. That was a cute little movie with some very funny characters.

    I'm really liking your week of reviews idea!

  3. Adam Sandler is a doll. Loved the Wedding Singer too, Heather! And thanks for the suggestions, Yvonne. I haven't seen either of those so I will put them on my list. And since I am obsessed with Rome (and all of Italy), I am very excited about that one!
