A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional.
Eddie is forty, owns a sporting-goods store, and is still single. After watching his ex-fiancée walk down the aisle, he meets Lila, an environmental researcher, who seems too good to be true. Pressured by his father and best friend, Eddie pops the question and marries Lila after only 6 weeks. However, as he almost instantly discovers, his new bride is a nightmare with more baggage than he can handle. She's immature, foolish, a monster in bed, owes a tremendous amount of money to various sources, and as it turns out, is only a volunteer and doesn't actually have a job. While on their honeymoon in Cabo, Eddie meets Miranda, a down-to-earth lacrosse coach who is visiting with her family. Sparks fly, and Eddie falls for her. Now comes the tricky part of breaking off his marriage to crazy Lila, all while keeping the truth from Miranda about why he's in Cabo in the first place...Written by
Approximately midway through the end credits, there is a scene showing Lila (Malin Akerman) having sex in a bed screaming "cock me" over and over. Cut to the next morning and Lila is shown sleeping in bed with a smile and the camera pans to the left showing a donkey smoking a cigarette in the corner sitting in a chair. See more »
This film is your typical Farrelly brothers movie: Raunchy, crude, derogatory, foul mouthed, yet hilariously well done movies. As you watch you realize how dumb and obvious some of the jokes are and yes you also realize that there is probably a better movie out at the moment but this was worth my time to see. Ben Stiller struggles as an actor but is uplifted by the presence of his father, Jerry Stiller who plays Ben's dad on screen for the first time. The plot circles around the conflict of Ben Stiller's character with first his reluctance to get married and then his overeagerness to tie the knot culminating in a very eventful honeymoon with his new wife. He meets a girl played by Michelle Monaghan of MI3 fame and they start falling for one another till the roof caves in as it always does in these romantic comedies. As a whole it is a bit to obvious and cliché at many points but it the film has a soul and many laughs and us well worth a sampling.
