In this “keep-you-guessing” thriller, Liam Neeson plays Dr. Martin Harris…who finds upon awakening from a coma that another man (Aidan Quinn) has stolen his identity…even his wife (January Jones) doesn’t recognize him.
Dr. Martin forms an unlikely alliance with Gina (Diane Kruger) a Berlin taxi driver, who joins him in his fight to uncover the truth.
Neeson seems a little off his game in this one…maybe miscast?
The answers to this mystery were almost disappointing.

Rated PG-13
1 hr. 49 min.

Just Go With It


In this fun romantic comedy, Danny (Adam Sandler) gets Katherine (Jennifer Aniston) to agree to pose as his soon-to-be-divorced wife and her kids to pretend to be his children…all in the hopes of winning the heart of Palmer (Brooklyn Decker).

Katherine’s daughter, Maggie (Bailee Madison), steals the show!
Nicole Kidman (Devlin Adams) is entertaining as Katherine’s old sorority sister…but the performance is a little “over-done.”
