I generally enjoy Adam Sandler’s films. They’re never totally brilliant, but I often chuckle at them – especially Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer. However, they seem to be going more and more the romantic comedy route. His latest features Sandler with Jennifer Aniston – her work in film seems to be going the same way – Forgettable romantic comedies with big name leading men who she seems to be photographed with an awful lot.
Just Go With It has Sandler recruiting Aniston to pose as his soon to be divorced wife, and her kids as his fake family. Sports Illustrated model, Brooklyn Decker (above), plays the girl Sandler falls for. No doubt in the course of the film there will be scenes of Sandler being hit in the balls by the kids, touching scenes of romance as he slowly realises that he loves Aniston’s character. Oh, there will also be a comedy pet or wild animal.
Variety have the news that Nicole Kidman is joining the cast in a small but vital comedic supporting role along the lines of Tom Cruise’s turn in Tropic Thunder.
The screenplay was written by Allan Loeb, Tim Dowling, Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler. Dennis Dugan will direct. Production begins next month in Los Angeles with the film planned for Valentine’s Day weekend next year.
Happy Madison Partner Jack Giarraputo says, “The writers did a great job developing a scenario that is not only a romantic comedy, but a family comedy as well, and everyone gets a chance to score.”

This sounds like a comedy version of The Big Chill, but with no Kevin Costner as the corpse and no Jeff Goldblum.
Five friends and former teammates reunite years later to honor the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With their wives and kids in tow, they spend the Fourth of July holiday weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Picking up where they left off, they discover why growing older doesn’t mean growing up.
If you like Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Kevin James and Rob Schneider then you’ll probably enjoy it. I don’t mind a bit of the Sandler so I’ll watch it, but I’m not expecting greatness. Plus we all know Kevin James is filling in the fat man in a small coat gap left by Chris Farley.
Directed by Dennis Dugan (You Don’t Mess with the Zohan)
Is it going to be comedy gold or a big fat nothing?

JoBlo.com has learned that Hayek has signed on for a role in the new Adam Sandler film that’s tentatively titled Lake House.
Hayek will star along with Sandler, David Spade, Rob Schnieder, Chris Rock and Kevin James in the film, which revolves around a group of high school friends who reunited in their hometown. Hayek would play Sandler’s wife in the film and the site is also reporting that Norm MacDonald and Steve Buscemi have signed onto much smaller roles in the film. It was said the film would be similar to The Big Chill, but more comedic.
Sandler is co-writing the film with Fred Wolf and Dennis Dugan would direct.
Another Adam Sandler film? Are you excited? Looks like he’s getting the gang back together with this one. I love Steve Buscemi’s cameo in Billy Madison. Great stuff.
