Starring: Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston

Rated: PG-13

Story: A plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant's kids become involved, and everyone heads off for a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives. (Sony Pictures)

Bottom Line: I love when a movie’s title asks you to tolerate a movie before you’ve even seen it. Although there are some occasional laughs – this is another Sandler misfire. I will say however that it was nice seeing Jennifer Aniston grow as an actress…and play the exact same character she plays in every movie. Again, sporadic laughs exist but the first half is lazy, limp and sophomoric – but if you JUST GO WITH IT you’ll find the second half to be more of the same.
