Trivia

The subplot involving Danny getting suspicious and jealous (albeit jokingly) over Katherine having a new potential suitor (Brian) only for her to reveal that he was offering her a job that would take her to New York is similar to the final story arc for Ross and Rachel (Aniston) on Friends (1994) where he gets suspicious and jealous when she meets up with an old flame (Mark) only for her to reveal that he was offering her a job that would take her to Paris.

not expecting this: job well done
12 April 2011 | by littlemssvixenSee all my reviews

I've seen almost all of Jennifer Aniston's movies and most of them I really did not like. So my expectations of "Just go with it" were very low. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was laughing with tears in my eyes the first 20min of watching this movie and I didn't stop laughing till the screen showed black.

Al though the movie almost is 2 hours long, I wasn't bored at any time. The story was well written, the acting was amazing and hilarious and it was original in it's jokes. It did have a typical ending, but for once it didn't bother me because of the good build up in the story and the development of the characters.

If you do have a weakness for typical comedy movies, but can't seem to find a good one these days, definitely check out this one: laughter guaranteed!
