John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.
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
When Eddie's father walks in Miranda's room after Eddie gets caught at her bedside, his white cap is about to fall off while he says his line. In the next frame, his cap is suddenly perfectly straight again. See more »
Look, you want to know the secret to a happy marriage? Do what I do. Plaster on a fake smile, plow through the next half century, sit back, relax, and wait for the sweet embrace of death!

After the completion of the end credits, a scene showing Eddie Cantrow's (Ben Stiller) bunkmate at camp saying good night and then snorting cocaine (in reference to the deviated septum scene in the film). See more »
Romantic comedy - this is the way it should be done!
I can totally understand why people hate this film. The reason is that this movie makes fun of people who love romantic comedies. I have to admit that I myself can't stand this genre. This is probably one reason why I liked this movie - it is a good parody.
But that is not all. This movie is about real people and real life. This one goes deep and tells something about human condition. If you hate this one you are stupid :)
Just kidding. Like I said it's totally understandable that people are offended when someone disrespects them. I like things like sci-fi, horror, action and other forms of higher art. If people say aliens and spaceships are stupid I get angry. This is the reason why score is so low. Movie is absolutely GREAT!
