Storyline

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 Lex

Goofs

On the way to Mexico when Lila tells Eddie she wants him to find a hotel so they can have sex, the next shot shows their car taking the exit off the highway. There is however only one person still in the car and you can clearly see it is neither of the main characters but a stunt double. See more »

The worst film I have ever seen!!
8 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film was just absolutely terrible! I saw it at the cinema two days ago and it was just awful. My friends wanted to see it because they both loved Ben Stiller and if I was him I'd be ashamed of having anything to do with this movie. It wasn't funny to start with and the sex scenes were way too graphic (and they were made in a really tacky way!) The film started off okay but after like the first 20mins it just lost it. Loads of people left and I wished we were one of them but we decided to stick it out and all the movie did was go from bad to worse! It was seriously the worst film I've ever seen and if I were you I wouldn't waste my money on it or my time! There 2+ hours of my life I'll never get back..!!
