Trivia

The film is supposedly inspired by a short story, "The Tale of Impertinent Curiosity", included in Cervantes' "Don Quixote". Cervantes's short story, however, is a tragedy. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, it sounds like the preacher is pronouncing them "Husbands and Wife." To be fair, he may be saying "Husbance", but it is definitely not "Husband." See more »

Quotes

[on Jay putting an end to Max's hedonistic lifestyle]
Jay Murphy: I mean, Max, you don't wanna become that fourty-year-old guy who's still out at the clubs with the silk shirt and gold chains trying to pick up on college girls, do you?
Max Abbitt: Of course not, Jay... at forty, I wanna be the bald guy with a pony-tail and a Harley trying to pick up High School girls.
Jay Murphy: You're an idiot.

Fairly entertaining.
3 February 2007 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

I didn't have expectations for this one. I watched it on LATE local t.v. But the cast really had me intrigued. David Schwimmer, Jason Lee, the beautiful Mili Avital, Vanessa Angel, Mili Avital among others deliver a great performance. The cast is really good and seems that they had great chemistry between them.

The movie had the occasional funny situations and some smart dialogs. Then I thought I was watching an episode of "Friends". The acting, dialogs, and even direction made this look like a sitcom.

Still I have a good time with this movie. It's funny and romantic at some points. Of course, with the typical American humor.

Give it a try, I can see why it's considered to be an underrated comedy.
