I used to walk into Adam Sandler movies with a little spring in my step, safe in the knowledge that I was probably in for some good, if stupid fun. Well … it’s time to throw the tired Sandler formula away and start anew. Dennis Dugan returns as the director of what turns out to be Sandler’s second truly awful comedy in a row (after last year’s Grown Ups). This time, Sandler plays Danny, a plastic surgeon/jerk-face who fakes being married to attract girls. After starting a relationship with a hot younger woman (Brooklyn Decker), she demands to meet his wife, and Danny gets his assistant (Jennifer Aniston, playing a nerd) to stand in. They wind up in Hawaii, and things go down predictable and stupid paths. Amazingly, Nicole Kidman shows up in a fairly big supporting part. Sandler’s next live-action film will be Jack and Jill … directed by Dennis Dugan. The horror never ends.
