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.
“Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” is a movie that’s been on my radar for a long time now, primarily due to the involvement of producer Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth). But I don’t think I ever had high expectations for it.
First off, it stars Katie Holmes. Meh. I knew that the “creature” of choice were “Imps” or “Gremlins”. O… K… It was being released at the ass end of August – not a good sign. So when the Rotten Tomatoes score settled on a 58 for this movie, I was totally prepared to go see it, come home, do my duty here, and be done with it.
But wow. I have to admit. I liked this movie A LOT!
