A must have DVD.
19 August 2004 | by (dayton, ohio usa) – See all my reviews

I bought the film because of Will Ferrell's picture on cover. I thought it would be more of a comedy than it really was. But the laughs weren't that plentiful. But the film is a real gem.

Three friends looking for meaningful relationships, bite off more than they anticipate. Their motivated by a mutual bet benefiting the one that can achieve a relationship that includes at least 3 months "live together" time.

Through their pursuits they learn about life, love and themselves.

It's not what you might expect from a Will Ferrell film, but it really is a great film, and a must have DVD.
