Okay so maybe the locations and leading lady's change but normally he plays a single, rich laid back dude who ends up winning over a mum and her kids etc etc etc, So I was not entirely surprised when this one turned out to be more or less the same thing as above until I realised that this one is actually an extremely laugh out loud funny movie!!!
Rich dude uses a story of a "pretend" wife who beats him as a ploy to get hot girls after a bad marriage encounter. Sandler then meets a potential match winner and she discovers the "family lie" but wants to hear its over from the non-existent wife. In launches Aniston as his PA/Receptionist pretends to be the extremely high maintenance ex and mistakenly manages to rope the kids into it as well.
We end up on a huge vacation to Hawaii with a German Dolph Lundgren in tow (the funniest guy in the movie and luckily, not the real Dolph!) an extremely sexy girlfriend, a stunning Aniston who proves you don't need to be 23 to look amazing, 2 hysterical kids and a sensational tongue in cheek cameo from Nicole Kidman sending herself up something chronic. Add in a "blink and you will miss it" Sean William Scott right at the very end and this is an absolutely side splitting film.
The jokes are old, the girls wear very little and Sandler just does not look "good looking" enough to pull a muscle, let alone the Aniston / Decker combo but its the Kids and the Cousin who steal all the comedy in this one.
The daughter is hilarious as the fake English boarding school kid and Sandler's cousin playing a dodgy German does not get a straight line in the whole charade.
There is no defining moment - it IS predictable but it does not matter, the title says it all. Leave your brain and logic tucked up in bed, get in the car, go to the cinema and Just go with it!!!
