The trailer was recently released for Adam Sandler’s next hit movie (ugh), Just Go With It. In the film, Adam stars as a douche who picks up women by telling them he’s married. In that, the plot copies one of my favorite Cary Grant films, Indiscreet. In Indiscreet, Cary Grant always tells women that he’s married and could never get a divorce, just so he’s never expected to commit - and then he falls in love with Ingrid Bergman (who wouldn’t?). Honestly, this trailer just made me want to watch Indiscreet again. The film also stars Brooklyn Decker in her film debut as the chick who Sandler eventually falls for and wants to commit too - and let’s just say I get the feeling that Meryl Streep’s career is safe. I know, I know - Brooklyn is a crappy actress? Say it ain’t so. Jennifer Aniston is also in it - she plays the chick/coworker/friend of Sandler, and Sandler somehow ropes her into pretending to be his estranged wife.
God, this looks dumb. I also find it interesting that Aniston is “the Cinderella” of the story - she’s the one who gets the makeover, although from what I can tell, the makeover just consisted of taking her hair out of a ponytail, taking off her glasses and putting on a great white shift. I mean… are we supposed to buy Aniston as mousy when she has great highlights and a permanent bronze tan?
Nicole Kidman is also supposed to have a smaller part in the film, but I don’t see her in the trailer at all. I wonder if that’s on purpose? Was her face really, really jacked?
Oh, should I even bitch about the mind-numbing plot point of having a girl who looks like Brooklyn (and is that f-cking young) falling in love with a middle-aged, paunchy Sandler? Jesus.
