For newlyweds Carl and Molly Peterson, life can't get any sweeter as they begin anew to settle down into married life. With a nice house and established careers in tow, nothing seems to get in their way. However, Carl is about find out just how much friendship means when Dupree, his best friend has been displaced from his home and fired from his job because of attending their wedding. Taking his friend in, what Carl and Molly are about to experience is that the fine line between a few days and whatever else is after, can be a lot more than they bargained for. Especially when their friend overstays his welcome in far too many ways than he should. Written by
Casting brought in producer/performer Anthony Begonia to improv audition an unscripted Hawaiian bartender line which didn't make it in the film right before the "Flaming Tornado" is unleashed. See more »

Now you've upset Randolph.
Randolph? Randolph? You've got to be kidding me. I know a Randy Dupree. I do NOT know a Randolph!
Did it ever occur to you that maybe he prefers to be called Randolph?
No, Molly, it never occured to me. The guy writes some bullshit poetry, and suddenly, he's got a brand new name.

(Spoiler) At the end of the credits, Lance Armstrong is shown reading Dupree's book and wondering aloud how to pronounce his "ness" name. See more »
I honestly liked it. It was funny, had a good story line, and even though it ended like I predicted, it was cute. Yes, Owen Wilson is playing his usual character, but it suits him best, so I say let him do it. Kate Hudson and Matt Dillon are a cute couple and they did a great job in this movie. Plus, Matt Dillon is a good-looking man, even for a forty-sum year old!
Although I enjoyed the movie, as well as the acting, Michael Douglas did not impress me at all. He didn't have much of a relevant part in the movie, other than distracting "Carl" from his home life. Also, I felt it dragged on a bit. But, overall, I enjoyed it, and the others with me in the theater did too.
