Comedy: A plastic surgeon convinces his assistant and her young son and daughter to masquerade as his ex-wife and kids after he lies to his girlfriend about his past.
Danny (ADAM SANDLER) is a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who was jilted at the altar as a young man. Since then, he has pursued only one-night stands and casual relationships with women, who he manages to coerce into bed by feeding them increasingly outlandish lies that center on him being the victim of a marriage gone wrong.

At one swank L.A. party, though, he meets Palmer (BROOKLYN DECKER), who might just be the perfect woman for him. Beautiful, smart, and kind-hearted, the 23-year-old makes him crave a committed relationship. But she finds the wedding ring he has been using as a prop these many years to get women into bed, and he panics and lies that he is just getting out of a marriage.

Danny convinces his loyal assistant, Katherine (JENNIFER ANISTON), to pose as his soon-to-be ex-wife, but she then lets it slip that she has a daughter and son, Maggie and Michael (BAILEE MADISON and GRIFFIN GLUCK). So, Danny must also pass off as a father. The kids blackmail him into a trip to Hawaii with Palmer and Katherine - and Danny's wacky cousin, Eddie (NICK SWARDSON) - where the lies continue with Katherine having to put on an act for Devlin (NICOLE KIDMAN), a former sorority rival who just happens to be vacationing at the same resort. As Danny and Katherine get deeper into their respective charades, they both find that they have deeper feelings for each other than they ever knew.

Teenagers who have grown up with Adam Sandler movies may have some interest, but the former "Saturday Night Live" star's target audience is definitely aging.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
