To answer your question,I predict he'll figure it out mear the climax of the movie, 10-20 minutes before is over (should I write "spoiler alert"?). There's a chance he'll figure out in the middle, or even near the beginning, but we know better than that...right? I mean, they didn't know better when they decided to make this in the first place.

Not really. Many people(women too) do it. You know what is odd and far fetched? In every movie Sandler plays more and more irresistible ladies men. He's not ugly, but...come on!

Though there were people who seemed to like Grown-Ups back in the spring quarter of 2010, they weren't as numerous as those who ate up Chuck & Larry, Zohan, Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, or Grandma's Boy. I expect to scream if the Sandler fans eat THIS up!
 
By the way, I'm VERY satisfied with The Bounty Hunter being nominated for Worst Picture in the Worst of 2010 awards.

This also seems to be another remake. Acording to wikipedia/imdb it was based on a 1969 film named Cactus Flower starring Ingrid Bergman, Walter Mathau and Goldie Hawn.

At least it admits being a remake unlike a certain psycho/stalker film we all know...

I, too, really find the premise odd. Only in an Adam Sandler movie would hot chicks go running into the arms of an unhappily married man. Unless that man is a millionaire, which unfourtunately, Sandler is!

But GTAHater still has a point. Sandler's braindead fans would run to the theaters just to watch Sandler sitting on a toilet for 2 hours. And "Grandma's Boy" bombed because Sandler himself wasn't in it, all of his talentless friends who co-star in almost all of his movies did.

Normally, a wedding ring would warn away chicks.  Adam Sandler is using one to pick up chicks even though he's not actually married (but he says he is to his girlfriends).  He begins to form a relationship with Brooklyn Decker.  When Decker discovers Sandler's ring, she doesn't want to get involved.  So in order to try and win Decker back, he asks his assistant Jennifer Aniston to pose as his wife.

The film is directed by Dennis Dugan who has worked with Adam Sandler on five previous occasions.  Based on recent history, Dugan and Sandler projects haven't been well received by critics.  Here are the Tomatometer ratings for each of their projects:
 
Happy Gilmore: 59%
Big Daddy: 40%
I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry: 14%
You Don't Mess with the Zohan: 36%
Grown Ups: 10%
 
That's not a very good track record for either one of them.  They have another film coming out in which Sandler plays a guy and his annoying twin sister.  It's not finished yet, but it's expected to be released sometime this year.

I consider Dennis Dugan one of the worst directors.I have liked some of his movies,but I always consider them to have bad directing anyway.I'm not sure if he's worst when Adam Sandler stars in his movies or not.But Adam has become less funny.
 
I know you're against the People's Choice Awards,but they just aired a few days ago and I have to complain:During the "Favorite Comedic Star" nominees montage,Adam was the only one that wasn't even trying to be funny,he just said the stupid line.How did I feel when Jennifer Aniston(coincidence?)said his name?I don't want to know.

Sandler can run, but he can't hide from us. If he focused more on playing against his typecast image (like in 'Punch Drunk Love', 'Reign on Me' and 'Funny People') he wouldn't be in this situation. 

Some of you may know this, others may not, but Sandler was considered to play Max in Michael Mann's 2004 crime-thriller 'Collateral' before losing the role to Jamie Foxx.

The problem with that is whenever he does go against his typecast, even a little bit, his movies bomb, but when he acts like a 4 year old he makes millions.

Yeah, that's what I was talking about when I wrote about actors being typecasted. Audiences know Sandler best for acting like a man-child, so those are the only kind of roles he gets. When he tries anything else, the movie fails.

GTAhater, Adam Sandler will have played in three films (Just Go With It, Zookeeper and as you stated earlier Jack & Jill) And Dennis Dugan will have directed two of those (Just Go With It and Jack & Jill).

It's maybe to early to call, but i have a gut feeling that Jack & Jill may turn out to be this years Gigli.

Sandler's older movies (i.e. Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy) and his "non-Adam Sandler" movies (i.e. The Wedding Singer, Punch Drunk Love, 50 First Dates, Funny People) are watchable. The problem is that Sandler realized that he could churn out a completely brain-dead product* and make a killing.

*His older movies where brain-dead, but had some "genius" to them (i.e. the "dumbest thing ever" speech from Billy Madison.)

Just got back. Sandler's regressed even further. His character was very unlikable; he lies to cute, innocent Brooklyn Decker and, apparantly, he was going to fake the children's deaths!?!?! What the f*ck?!? Also, Rob Schneider must have pissed off Adam Sandler, because he's not in here. Instead, Nick Swardson's here and, it pains me to say this, Swardson's actually worse than the usual Schneider performance.

See, I love Sandler's older films, too. I can still watch them and find some amount of humor (where else can you see Bob Barker knock out Sandler) The problem is all Sandler ever does anymore is act like an idiot! 

There is a reason behind this though, you see everytime he tries to branch out his acting abilities, his movies get a measure of critical acclaim, but they end up bombing financially. Case in point "Reign Over Me" Here was a movie where the vast majority of critics, even the ones who gave the film a poor review, said Sandler and Cheadle were phenomenal. And in a rare case, the problems with the movie were more from director/actor Mike Binder rather than Sandler, and what happened? The movie made less money than Little Nicky. So i can't necessarily blame him for sticking with his same old routine to a point, cause if i was in his shoes i'd probably do the same. However it does not change the fact that he hasn't made a good comedy movie at least to me since the wedding singer... i think, haven't gotten around to seeing funny people yet.

I feel bad everytime someone doesn't want to see a Jim Carrey movie only because it's a drama.But you know what?It's their fault.They let the tyecasting world suck them into it.

Why do you think Anthony Michael Hall didn't want to play FERRIS BUELLER?Because it would hurt his career...I know it died anyway but that's another issue.

I gave REIGN OVER ME ***.Sandler's performance was...decent.I felt he was good during the scenes where he had to speak through his face,but the scenes where he screamed and cried...Anyway,let's get our facts right before we point fingers to the wrong people.

Big mistake on his part. Matthew Broderick has had a lasting career in the decades since the movie, including Tony Award success, even though he admits that people still ask him "Hey, Ferris, is this your day off?". Hall disappeared from existence until he did the "Dead Zone" TV series and appeared in "Dark Knight". Sometimes turning down a certain role will ruin your career as much as appearing in a bad movie.

Not really.He turned it down to avoid typecasting...because he was a star at the time.Broderick took it without thinking on his career because he wasn't a star at the time.Anyway,Hall is more than an actor mentioned only in "Whatever happened to" conversations.When he appears in a TV show he'll most likely be credited as a "Special Guest Star" or something similar,like COMMUNITY and NO ORDINARY FAMILY.

Actually, Hall's career was less than perfect at the time. He holds the record for the shortest run as a Saturday Night Live cast member, and he was fired from the lead role in "Full Metal Jacket", both because of his drinking or other personal problems on set. Proving yet again that giving into your vices will ruin your professional career in the end.

I just saw this.  

I don't know what it is about Sandler's movies, but they always get at least a chuckle from me. This time, 95% of those came from the kids. No wonder he got jealous. The leads do have chemistry, but it's weak. And the plot has too many unnecessary embroilments. And by the end, it all gets solved with no conflict!

Let's get it out in the open already: he's bad in this movie. But you know what? Aniston isn't(although at times she seems confused as to why she's here). Neither is Brooklyn DeckerBailee Madison is quite the little scene stealer. And Nick Swardson just tries way too hard. This was Dennis Dugan's best directorial effort(although that's not saying much).

Despite being famous for so long, this is the first time I can tell a Sandler movie is a total vanity project: 
1)Most of his characters have moments where they seem like jerks. Here,I couldn't look at the screen when DANNY appeared because he always said something mean or did something terrible(including being physically abusive towards children). I feel Sandler is similar in real life, so he orders the people behind the camera to come up with ways for us to buy that people want to be around DANNY.
2)The premise is about him going after pretty but silly girls. When he finds the hottest, he thinks he's in love. When he's asked why he won't dump her like everyone thinks, he says "She's beautiful,she's sweet...she's got great lips". And he does dump her when something better comes along. You know at what point we see a hint that he and KATHERINE will fall for each other? Right after he sees her in a bikini. Also, she enters a Hawaiian dance contest against Nicole Kidman, the other women on stage are all old and/or fat, and they eventually loose. All because Sandler demands to have a hot love interest in every movie.
3)Because of how much of a zombie he's been in his latest movie, I think he gets up early and then goes to shoot a scene. Does he want to? I guess he thinks "paycheck" and "box office results".

I give this 3/10.

I  love Adam Sandler but the story was just too shallow for me. And I agree, Aniston's kids entertained me more than Sandler.

I'd do an introduction for this, but I'd rather not.
 
The good:
 
Brooklyn Decker: She's cute and her performance is... not absolutely terrible. In terms of first time actresses, she's OK. Also, she's the ONLY character who isn't an unlikeable douche.
 
The Hawaii locales are pretty: The locales are breathtaking, but if you really want to see the locales, just find a travel magazine, blow up to the size of your TV, and tap it to said TV. That way, you can look at the beautiful locales without the sight of a golf-club entering Sandler's ass.
 
There's NO chance that it could be as bad as Jack And Jill: I don't think that anyone can argue with this.
 
The bad:
 
The fact that the best performance comes from a first-time actress: There's a goddamn Oscar winner in the cast and a model-turned-actress is better than her.
 
The kids: They're annoying and I wished that they'd disappear from the whole movie.
 
Well I'll cutting off the bad early this time. The reason? Everything else is UGLY!!!
 
The ugly: (Note: As much as I'd just like to write EVERY DAMN THING ABOUT THIS F*CKING MOVIE, I have principles.)
 
Sandler, Aniston, and their non-existant chemistry: They're both terrible, annoying, and can't create chemistry to save their life. There was better romance in The Hills Have Eyes.
 
Nicole Kidman: I've always had contempt for Ms. Kidman. I thought that The Hours was one of the most overrated pieces of crap I've ever seen. To be fair to her, I thought her acting in Rabbit Hole was good. But, she just HAD to follow it up with this. And next up is a movie with Nicolas Cage, Cam Gigandet, and history's greatest monster. Does she want me to hate her?
 
Nick Swardson: You know what's interesting? When Swardson's not around Sandler, he's actually funny. Maybe, Sandler saved his life in the past?
 
Bonus: It made me miss Rob Schneider!: Swardson plays a character that Schneider should have played. What did Schendier do to Sandler? Did he go number 2 on his carpet? Did he scare Jennifer Aniston? The mind boggles.
 
(Edit: Super bonus one that I forgot: The script: The writer of this is Allan Loeb. I mentioned in my review of The Dilemma that he's a massive hack and that he deserves the Iranian pick-pocket punishment. After reviewing this, he should also get the Human Centipede treatment so he can't tell people what he wants written down. Maybe pluck out his eye-lids so he can't pull a Diving Bell And The Butterfly. Also, according to IMDB, he's writing a remake of Escape From New York. Does he want to challenge f*cker Greg Berlanti to a rape-something-that-I-love contest?)
 
Not many people noticed this, but Minka Kelly has a small role at the beginning of the movie. Fitting, because...
 
Next-up: The Roommate! Also, grade: D

I don't know,man.That movie seems to be aware how dumb it is,while in this one,they tried to pretend as if the characters weren't the assholes they were.

He's not obligated to appear in every Happy Madison movie.But I see why you'd think that.Since 2000,he's never been in movies not made by that studio(excluding cameos,voice-overs,movies he directed,and something called AMERICAN VIRGIN which amazes how it wasn't made by that studio).Don't worry,I'm sure we'll see many colloborations between the 2.

 The reason I went on that little spiel is because the role seem taylor fit for Schneider. It just seems so odd that he wasn't in there.
 
Also, there's something that I forgot to add because I was in a hurry to get it in before the hour ended.

Yep, as always, a Adam Sandler movie that is s***, and only amuses his friends and himself, yet he makes millions of dollars anyway. He's kinda like the mainstream version of Ray William Johnson (see YouTube to get that vague joke/insult).
 
But hey, at least we got to see Aniston and Kidman hula dance. That's something for our troubles, right? Right?

This movie ranges from boring to juvenile. The scenes are often unfunny. Only one scene is mildly amusing but it's not worth watching the rest.  

Adam Sandler is his usual juvenile, cringe-worthy best (or should that be worst?). Jennifer Aniston is just doing the rounds for the pay cheque. Nick Swardson is terribly unfunny in his supporting role. Brooklyn Decker is showing off her face and body to divert attention from her wooden acting. Decker's acting is wooden enough that even horny jerks will see past her good looks. Nicole Kidman is completely annoying and when she doesn't annoy is just plain boring. 

This "comedy" is devoid of humor. It's completely unfunny from the beginning. Only those voting in the Razzies should see this garbage because it deserves at least one nomination.

Vits, I'm new here so cut me some slack if I comment on movies that everybody else watched. Angry

As for the mildly amusing scene, it was the one where the precocious daughter negotiated a deal with Sandler's vile character.

1)I meant that it was a box office hit. Luckily for you, that actually raises it's odds to win a Razzie.
2)Yes! As I stated before, the children were the best part.
