Bad Adam Sandler movies don't die; they live forever in Redbox kiosks around the country. According to new figures released by the DVD company, 'Just Go With It' was the most rented title of 2011, topping 'No Strings Attached,' 'Rango,' 'The Dilemma' and 'Due Date.'

Released back in February, the romantic comedy was actually one of Sandler's more well-received films of 2011, despite a Rotten Tomatoes rating of just 19 percent. The remainder of the year would bring the Sandler-produced disaster 'Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star' and the Sandler-led disaster 'Jack & Jill.'

In fact, it's the 'Just Go With It' release date that might account for its massive Redbox rentals; as the Los Angeles Times points out, the longer a film is available at kiosks around the country, the more chances it has to be rented. 'Just Go With It' was also the beneficiary of a day-and-date deal that Sony (its distributor) has with Redbox, which allows the company to make DVDs available for rental on the same day they go on sale. Studios like Fox, Universal and Warner Bros. do not have that agreement with Redbox; only three of those studios' titles wound up in the top-ten.

1. 'Just Go With It'
2. 'No Strings Attached'
3. 'Rango'
4. 'The Dilemma'
5. 'Due Date'
6. 'Despicable Me'
7. 'The Tourist'
8. 'The Lincoln Lawyer'
9. 'The Green Hornet'
10. 'I Am Number Four'
