Trivia

In the beginning of the movie after Lisa and Reuben are wed they fly to the St. Barts airport. The aircraft shown landing at the airport lands on the "displaced thresh-hold" and not on the actual area of the runway designated for landing. Displaced thresh-holds at airports are used for taxiing and allow more room for take off but are not available for aircraft to land on. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie there is a shot of an airplane landing at the St. Barts airport on a runway with a displaced threshold (area of runway with arrows). St. Barts does not have a runway with a displaced threshold. See more »

A very funny movie!
16 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I am surprised at the comments that I have read so far that suggest this is a boring or mediocre movie. All that I know is that I am a 46 year old married mother, and I just spent 90 minutes laughing out loud (too loud sometimes) and smiling. I can imagine that if you are easily offended by fart ( or "shart") jokes or the shiny hiney's of Ben Stiller or Hank Azaria, you may not like this movie. But really, then, why would you go in the first place? I was definitely not bored. The characters were all so much fun- the kind of creepy boss, the obnoxious but extremely lovable best friend, the risk expert who finds something to worry about in any situation, the goofy, scatterbrained ferret- owning waitress/creepy children's book author, the australian who likes to free fall off of tall buildings, the priceless scuba instructor, and the very cute salsa dancer. Anyway, I loved it , and I'll probably even go see it again.
