Roger Ebert’s Withering Takedown of Just Go With It
So, did famed film critic Roger Ebert enjoy the new Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston/Supermodel comedy Just Go With It? I don’t know! Let’s check out the opening paragraph of his review to find out.
The people in this movie are dumber than a box of Tinkertoys. One fears they’re so unfortunate it’s not Politically Correct to laugh at them. That’s not a problem because Just Go With It is so rarely funny. Here is a story that began as a French farce. Then it was adapted into a Broadway play named Cactus Flower. Then the play was made into a movie. Now it has been made into another movie. This process has diluted it like a homeopathic medicine, so that not an atom of the original formula can be found.
