Just Go With It

A bus full of Catholic school-girls is tragically struck by a train. Thereafter, before the gates of heaven, St. Peter asks each girl the following: “Have you ever touched a penis my child?” The first girl responds, “yes, but once with the tip of my finger.” St. Peter quietly explains: “dip that finger here in this Holy Water, and proceed through the gates.” The second girl states she handled a few, and Peter tells her to wash her hands in a similar fashion. All of a sudden the girls begin shouting as they are pushed by one forcefully making her way to the front of the line. “What is the cause for this commotion?” Peter shouts. The girl replies, “if I’m going to gargle that water, I want to get it over with before Sally washes her ass in it!”

A beautiful girl told me that joke long ago. I laughed then, and despite my current misery, the memory and retelling of it have made me laugh again.

Having just returned from the premiere of the Rom-Com “Just Go With It,” an MLatM was inevitable. It’s been awhile since I laughed that hard, and I was surprised at first that Sandler supplied the fix. Surprised or not it happened thanks to a dose of Happy Madison humor, a slice of the lovely Brooklyn Decker, and a friendly helping of Ms. Aniston. The movie is a modern day adaptation of the ’69 classic “Cactus Flower.” It is the story of a man who pretends to be married in hopes of avoiding commitment. However, this plan obviously goes awry and humor ensues while he finds honesty underneath his blanket of lies.

Critics will find it predictable, glossy, Hollywood fluff. That’s because they’re predictable, glossy, Hollywood fluff. You see this isn’t a movie pretending to be technically savvy, or morally aloof. No, this is a movie with heart, and it got to the root of mine. Life’s tough, shit happens, and it’s hard to pick up the pieces. I’m no-where near ready to pick up all of mine yet, but I’m glad I picked up that lost smile above, and found a new one today. It’s not much, but it’s something, and it’s my life at the movies.

    Still love that joke HAHAHAHA!

    I agree 110% with the assement of this film. It seems reviewers and even movie-goers these days think ever script needs to win an Oscar. Well guess what folks, laughing is still fun as well! This was a GREAT movie and I can’t wait to watch it many more times!

      Agreed, and this movie is not equipped with just the trailer laughs… it’s funny the whole way through. Also, it’s a real deal Rom-Com because it always breaks for the tears in the perfect places. However, where was Schnieder? I was waiting for him to pop up but he never did, LOL! Regardless I loved it, and I LOVE JENNIFER ANISTON!!! She is still stunning ;)

        Weird, he did in the cut we saw months ago. Guess that means I’ll need the blu ray!

    I think this one was honestly one of your best MLATMs yet man. Very well written, and I definitely see your angel on the “Hollywood Fluff” thing. We NEED movies like this. That’s why I loved The Heartbreak Kid, Along Came Polly and The Wedding Singer so much. It’s lighthearted fun that EVERYONE relates to in some way.

      Wow, thanks! I really didn’t expect anyone to think that about this one. The point I’m trying to make is that every movie is loved by someone, and thus I am trying to bring that good nature to anyone willing to read my writing. Critics have become obsessed with hating everything, and I just want to bring the joy of cinema back to everyone waiting for permission to enjoy movies again! You will love this movie, SO FUNNY!

      Sidenote: I <3 Jennifer Aniston!
