Don't just go with it. Really don't. This "comedy" about a plastic surgeon, Danny (Adam Sandler), who picks up women in bars by faking a sham marriage (he flashes his ring and laments that his wife is a shopaholic) is unacceptable even by Sandler's miserable standards.

Dead-eyed Danny's latest "conquest" is a teacher (Brooklyn Decker), but in order to "bag" her he recruits his loyal assistant (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his soon-to-be-ex-wife. If you like penis and breast jokes, then you're well catered for in this misogynistic, regularly cruel caper that contains a surreally unfunny turn from Nicole Kidman. Only Aniston – miraculously – retains some dignity.
