WhereCity.com - Articles - Just Go With It

Adapted from a French play ‘Fleur de cactus’, Just Go With is about plastic surgeon Danny Maccabee (Adam Sandler) with a foxy move for picking up women; he feigns an unhappy marriage. When he meets hot math teacher Palmer or ‘the one’ (Brooklyn Decker) however, he finds himself in a fix. When she insists on meeting his soon-to-be ex wife, Danny begs his frumpy assistant Katherine Murphy (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his snooty, cheating wife. Things snowball with Katherine’s children and Danny’s cousin getting involved. The unlikely bunch takes their madness to Hawaii where the truth eventually spills out.
