I read some bad professional, but obviously snooty, reviews of this, so wasn't expecting much. However, working on the theory that romcoms are easy on the eye and a pleasant way of spending 90 minutes, I thought it would be worth a punt.
It turned out much better than expected. Sure, the storyline is preposterous, but that's fairly common for these things. That aside, it's a very pleasant and funny film, with beautiful location shots of Hawaii.
Adam Sandler is fairly restrained for him, and Jennifer Aniston comes across very well and believable in her part. She starts off as frumpy and lo and behold, transforms into a real stunner, who takes frequent opportunities to show off her gorgeous bod.
The only downside is the painful kids, but again that's often the case in romcoms and something you just need to put up with.
I don't know why Jennifer gets slated so much, maybe sour grapes from her phenomenal success in Friends, but my rule of thumb is that she's usually in pleasant, enjoyable films, which is the case here. Just go for it!
