Happy birthday, Jennifer Aniston! You made another bad movie.
"Just Go With It," Aniston's romcom outing with Adam Sandler, arrives in theaters on her big day. And if the critics are to be believed, it joins the ranks of recent stinkers. Here are 5 particularly scathing reactions:
"Deliberately extinguishing the genre that's kept them working would seem an odd career move for Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, but maybe -- like Sandler's character in Judd Apatow's 'Funny People' -- they're burned out on the life task of making people laugh." - Dana Stevens, Slate [Stevens also gets extra points for pointing out Aniston's "trademark cocker-spaniel mannerisms"]
"Don't even think of going with it. It's the perfect Valentine's date night movie, but only with someone you hate." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Everyone should be offended by the time-annihilating suckage of this mirth void." - Kyle Smith, NYP
"Aniston and Sandler play characters too awful to deserve anyone better than each other. But what did we do to deserve them?" - Keith Phipps, AV Club
"Lewis Wolpert defined depression as 'malignant sadness.' George Santayana called it 'rage spread thin.' I call it 'watching an Adam Sandler romcom where he discovers he's been in love with his feisty pal Jennifer Aniston all along.'" - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
Consider yourself warned when you arrive at the box office.
