Our Score
A tried-and-tested pick-up line engulfs a randy plastic surgeon in a tangled web of deceit in this hit-and-miss romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler. Pretending to be unhappily married, Sandler uses a wedding ring as a magnet to draw sympathetic women into no-strings attached sex, yet it repels a young schoolteacher (played by swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker) with whom Sandler is infatuated. A ludicrously contrived series of events (based on a French farce, itself the basis for 1968 Oscar winner Cactus Flower) leads his assistant Jennifer Aniston to pose as his soon-to-be ex-wife on a Hawaiian holiday designed to ease Decker's mind. Of course Aniston seems better suited to Sandler, perhaps because, as a mother, she's accustomed to childishness - actually Sandler generates most chemistry with Aniston's kids (Bailee Madison, Griffin Gluck). Broad comic turns by Nicole Kidman and Nick Swardson only exacerbate the feeling that everyone is just trying too hard for their own good here.


A plastic surgeon pretends to be unhappily married to seduce women. When his girlfriend finds his prop wedding ring, he claims he is getting a divorce and has to persuade his assistant to pose as his soon-to-be ex-wife, but is forced to come up with yet more lies to maintain the illusion. Romantic comedy, starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman.
