It's obvious from the title of this entry what I chose hehe.
As much as I love Liam Neeson from his movie Taken (go watch it), it's been a while since we watched a rom-com at the big screen plus I just watched The Switch two weeks ago and I was so disappointed! I've been secretly wishing to see Jennifer Aniston in a nice movie and I think this is it!
The storyline is a bit lame but still managed to entertain the audience, everyone at the cinema was laughing most of the time!
In the movie, a plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant's kids become involved, and everyone heads off to a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives.
What I love about the movie --- it's light, it's hilarious, it's unrealistic! The fun begins with a lie, and as the movie goes, that lie goes more and more outrageous!
The jokes - maybe a hit or miss to some, especially those which involved the kids. Like how Danny (Adam Sandler) pushed the kids after their pretend game in the bedroom or how he dropped Maggie to the mud. This movie talks a lot about poop too. Don't say I didn't warn you!
I love the actress who played Devlin here, Katherine's (Jen Aniston) long life rival. I won't mention who she is so as not to spoil you but I'm surprised to see her in a comedy role! And she can dance huh!
I super adore the kids who played Jen's children!!!
Especially 11-year old Bailey Madison, who played the daughter with a fake Brit accent.
We're laughing 90% of the movie, we love it. Even the golf-photoshoot-session, it's hilarious!
I also love Jen's clothes here, especially her "transformation dress"
An offwhite dress (compliments her tan skin) paired with a strappy nude heels (which elongates her leg more) and a Ferragamo (Croc Fiammetta) bag. Yes, I love it so much I did a little research!

And her coverup, same thing she's wearing on the poster above:
I just don't like her gray/silver dress (can't find a pic) that she wore at the dinner with Devlin, good thing they changed into a grass skirt with matching coconut bras for their dance off, another favorite scene!
If you loved Adam Sandler's movies in the past, you'll love this, same formula, same Adam Sandler. If you're Jen Aniston's fan, this is much much better than her movies in the past.
Overall, I love the movie, call me shallow or what, but I left the cinema still laughing with P while we're talking about some scenes.
If you decide to watch this, remember - manage your expectations, take the movie for what it is and just go with it!
