DVD/Blu-ray Review: Just Go With It

This DVD/Blu-ray review of “Just Go With It” appears on KTKA-49.

Back in February, when I reviewed the new below-average formulaic romcom from Adam Sandler, “Just Go With It,” I complained about how tired and crammed full of cheap jokes it was.

Nothing’s changed there–the unfortunate movie remains the same. And it’s a shame that the chemistry he and co-star Jennifer Aniston have was wasted on such lifeless material.

If there is an upside to this movie, it’s that Sandler and company have treated their fans to a DVD and Blu-ray packed with extra features.

There’s a bit too much mugging from co-star Nick Swarsdon, but Sandler appears on one of two commentary tracks, and there is a lot of other goofing around with he and the cast on a blooper reel and featurettes.

In fact, it looks like being around for the filming of the movie — which shot on location in Hawaii — might have been way more fun than actually watching the final product. If only they could have channeled that into a better script.
