Just Go With It (Sony, Blu-ray or standard DVD, PG-13, 116 min.). A very likeable performance by Jennifer Aniston does not quite make up for this film’s deficiencies. Adam Sandler plays Danny Maccabee who, as a young man with a giant nose, 20 years ago heard his bride say nasty things about him and his family just before the wedding. Drowning his sorrows in a nearby bar after skipping out on the wedding, he discovers the “power” of his unofficial wedding ring in getting women to spend time with him, after he tells them of his unhappy marriage.

Today, Danny is a successful plastic surgeon (career change; nose taken care of), still using his precious ring. However, then he falls for extremely hot, 23-year-old Palmer (Sports Illustrated cover swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker in her first film) when not wearing the ring. After a night on the beach, she finds the ring in his pants and he gives his standard lie, saying he is in the process of getting a divorce. Palmer wants to meet his wife before continuing to see him, and he presses his assistant (Aniston as Katherine) into posing as his wife. Anniston is a lot of fun pretending to be his wife, but then the scene quickly turns awkward when they try to one-up each other in their putdowns. After the meeting, Katherine takes a phone call about one of her children — daughter Maggie (Bailee Madison) is into British accents and acting; son Michael (Griffin Gluck) wants to go to Hawaii to swim with the dolphins — and suddenly the lie is expanded to include both kids. They all end up going to Hawaii, including Danny’s obnoxious cousin Eddie (Nick Swardson), who adopts a horrific false German accent while pretending to be Katherine’s new boyfriend. Also, Danny told Palmer that his wife was named Devlin (Katherine’s old nemesis from school, who, of course, turns up in Hawaii, played by Nicole Kidman). Musician Dave Matthews plays Devlin’s husband.

The film is a remake of the 1969 movie “Cactus Flower,” which had a much more effective cast in Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman as the nurse and a ditzy Goldie Hawn as the young love interest. Plus, it had a screenplay by I.A.L. Diamond, who also wrote “Some Like It Hot.” And that film was based on  Abe Burrows’ Broadway play, which itself was based on a French play. Dennis Dugan directs, Hawaii looks lovely and Sandler has some good scenes with the kids, but the film could have been better.

There are two audio commentaries: one by Sandler, Swardson and the filmmakers; and one by Dugan. There also is a blooper reel (4:39) and three featurettes. Exclusive to Blu-ray are an additional 11 minutes of deleted scenes, bringing the total to 15 (16:57), including Palmer pulling a Danny on the plane; and nine more featurettes. Grade: film 2.5 stars; extras 2.75 stars

The Company Men (Anchor Bay, Blu-ray or standard DVD, R, 105 min.). This is the superior film, but one that has too many scenes that hit close to home. The excellent acting helps overcome some of the depression the film generates, even though one character’s journey is exactly the downward spiral you expect.

Set in the Boston area (there is one spectacular high-rise view of the city), the film, written and directed by John Wells (“The West Wing”), stars Ben Affleck as family man Bobby Walker, living the high life with a $160,000 job with GTX (Global Transportation Systems), a shipbuilding company founded by college roommates Jim Salinger (Craig T. Nelson) and Gene McClary (Tommy Lee Jones). While McClary  is off at a conference, Salinger combines two of his three divisions, leading to the firing of 3,000 people, among them Bobby. We then see Bobby’s resistance to his world crumbling around him. He actually gets more upset over his golf club membership being canceled than losing his house. Family steps in to help, though, including his brother-in-law Jack Dolan (Kevin Costner), who runs a small construction company, and his parents, who offer Bobby, his wife (Rosemarie DeWitt) and two children a place to stay. However, there are months of frustration as he seeks work to no avail.

Another round of cuts leads to the firing of Phil Woodward (Chris Cooper) and even McClary. One repeated point is how the business has become more about numbers and satisfying shareholders than actually building something, like a ship, and taking pride it in.

The film looks lovely on Blu-ray, with Roger Deakins as the cinematographer. DVD extra include director’s audio commentary; an alternate ending, that changes one fact and thus loses the film’s final scene; six deleted scenes (7:16), including a golf course opening and Woodward applying for a pizza delivery job; and a making-of feature (14:23). Grade: film 3.25 stars; extras 2.75 stars

Rating guide: 5 stars = classic; 4 stars = excellent; 3 stars = good; 2 stars = fair; dog = skip it
