Pete and Debbie are both about to turn 40, their kids hate each other, both of their businesses are failing, they're on the verge of losing their house, and their relationship is threatening to fall apart.
Devastated Peter takes a Hawaiian vacation in order to deal with the recent break-up with his TV star girlfriend, Sarah. Little does he know, Sarah's traveling to the same resort as her ex - and she's bringing along her new boyfriend.
Tim (Rudd) is a rising executive who "succeeds" in finding the perfect guest, IRS employee Barry (Carell), for his boss's monthly event, a so-called "dinner for idiots," which offers certain advantages to the exec who shows up with the biggest buffoon. Written by
The movie uses two The Beatles elements. One is the song "Fool on the Hill", used in the opening and closing song number. The other is a lyric "I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one" from John Lennon's song "Imagine". See more »

As if people would let those things happens, principally in US, with all the concerns, amazing. The naive presented surprised me.
Sincerely, if Brazil do a movie like this no one would never see a Brazilian movie again. For example, only with the exposure of one our biggest flaws, showed in 'Elite Squad', we had some attention from the world. Really, in my opinion this idea was an insult to art.
Hollywood, never the same. To be clear I feel so pleased to watch US movies from the 60'70'80's and course, we don't forget about 90s, the launcher for a few of greatest artists this time, but unfortunately, I was thinking about this, watching the iconic 'The Addams Family', just two days ago 'the 2000s seems that the fantastic writing lost space for this small colored drawing that makes the engine run by so sold arts and consumed by the excess.'
Each time harder to appreciate some of this so called '7th art', if I may, used to call!
