[Mrs. Conelly is saying she has her sink clogged]
You don't have a disposal.
Whew, it's really clogged!
[after getting it out]
Whew, all right!
[Nancy throws up down the disposal]
Looks like you two got some kind of bug. Good thing Officer Dan took me to have a flu shot.

Put this on last night not know anything about it and was pleasantly surprised. The plot was interesting and finished with a nice twist. Stiller and Barrymore worked well together and had a good chemistry, and it was a nice surprise to watch a comedy without too many attempts at silly slapstick.
There are very few laugh out loud moments, but I was smiling on a number of occasions. Definitely reminds me of War of the Roses, which is no bad thing, and the leads play it very well.
I liked the ending too, although I would have gone absolutely mental if I was them. Not what I was expecting at all. Anyone expecting the regular Ben Stiller comedy like Dodgeball will be disappointed but if you approach this with an open mind, you should be OK.
Overall, quite good and a well earned 7 out of ten from me.
