Just Go With It

For a wholesome duvet day, you can’t leave out iconic duo Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. The movie Just Go With It is insanely ridiculous, in the best way. Sandler’s surgeon character pretends to be married as a pick up strategy – but accidentally meets “the one.” Instead of telling her the truth, he has his office assistant (Aniston, of course) pretend to be his soon to be divorced wife, even roping her kids into the scheme. The whole ordeal is absurd, but it makes for a heartwarming and easy watch. Ideal.


So there you have it, five flicks to entertain you as you refuse to move from the couch. Happy Streaming!
