In the new movie 'Just Go With It,' a plastic surgeon (Adam Sandler) recruits his assistant (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his estranged wife, in order to win over the supposed woman of his dreams (Brooklyn Decker).

He's not the first character in a romantic comedy to lie for love -- and he won't be the last. If we we were to take our cues on romance from these movies, then maybe the lesson is that liars CAN prosper at love ... after a messy and entertaining comeuppance, of course. (Warning: spoilers!)
