| not expecting this: job well done
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!

Did You Know?


During the stage competition between them, Nichole Kidman wears a (more or less) Hawaiian-ish skirt whereas Jennifer Anniston wears a Tahitian costume. (Hawaii's traditional skirts are made of ti leaves., whereas grass skirts were initially from Tahiti, French Polynesia.) The body double for Kidman performs the traditional Tahitian Tamure dance---that is moving the hips and rear in a rapid-fire figure 8 fashion. However the music was first playing the ukulele, the traditional string instrument of Hawaii with the sultry twangy sound. Anniston goes from performing hip swaying (side to side) with swaying arms and hand motions traditional of the Hawaiian hula, to attempting the Tamure (also known as o'tea Tahiti dance), which is the rapid figure 8 dance movement from the hips/rear. Rapid-fire percussion (drums as well as hollowed out tree trunks, used as horizontal drums) are native to Tahiti and traditionally used for the Tamure dance. The hula is typically danced to the ukulele, the traditional mini guitar from Hawaii. The Tahitians having invaded Hawaii centuries ago, Hawaii now features traditional Tahitian dance and music, particularly at the Polynesian Cultural Center located on Oahu. What Anniston did, changing from one dance to the other and mixing both, is known as "fusion" of both Polynesian dances, and typically frowned upon by natives, as it both demeans their respective cultures, and confuses onlookers, tourists and foreigners alike, hence why it is important to make the distinction.


Bridesmaid: So happy you picked this dress.
Bridesmaid: So beautiful.
Bridesmaid: Isn't she...


Smart and Final's house brand, First Street, can be seen in some background shots, but there are no Smart and Final stores in Hawaii.
