Lumbergh: Milt, we’re gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?
When he suddenly loses his job, and her documentary is rejected by HBO, Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston find that they’re suddenly facing a financial crisis. After a brief stop at his unbearable brother’s, the couple decide to leave the rat race behind and join a modern-day hippie commune.
They find they have some difficulties adjusting, as anyone would expect when moving into a living situation where there’s few modern conveniences, no privacy, no ownership, nudism, open sexuality and strict vegetarianism.
Normally I would say “Comedy fails to ensue”, but I’m hearing all the hippies from this freaking movie encouraging me to say “Comedy chose its own, non-ensuing path”…
Premiering this weekend on Starz was this year’s “Just Go With It,” starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Brooklyn Decker.
“Just Go With It” is the story of a plastic surgeon (Sandler) who wears a wedding ring to pick up girls, even though he’s not married. When he finally meets the woman of his dreams (Decker), she finds the ring he uses, even though he hadn’t used it to pick her up. She mistakenly believes he’s a married man who was cheating on his wife with her. In order to convince her he’s not, he tells her he’s divorced. One lie leads to another and before you know it, he’s backed into saying he has children.
It’s the latest in a long line of reasons why someone needs to stop Adam Sandler from making movies.
Laughs straight through from start to finish, every member of the cast represents well, and it doesn’t stretch its material and wind up overstaying its welcome. I have no reservations about recommending highly.
