It seems appropriate to review a romantic comedy on Valentine’s Day, even though they aren’t typically my favorite type of movie. This weekend I saw Just Go With It starring, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston.

Sandler plays Danny, a plastic surgeon, who has been pretending for years he is married as a way to pick up girls for one night stands. He finally meets the love of his life but she finds the ring and is done with him. To cover up, he tells her he’s getting divorced and gets his assistant, Katherine (Aniston), to pretend to be his ex wife. They all end taking a trip to Hawaii, including Katherine’s two precocious children who are also pretending to be their kids, and things get complicated.

If you’re looking for a cute, predictable, romantic comedy this movie is for you. It was enjoyable but nothing spectacular. The only part of this movie that really impressed me was the little girl who played their daughter, Maggie. Bailee Madison was absolutely delightful and is very talented—her bio on IMDB says that she sparkles and she truly does. At only ten years old she has a long list of credits as guest parts on various TV shows and was one of the stars of Bridge To Terabithia. This girl made the movie worth seeing for me.

So if you’re looking for a Valentine or date night movie, check out Just Go With It. If nothing else Bailee will make you smile.

Rated PG-13
