A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional.
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.
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

You haven't really been taking care of yourself. I can't remember the last time you exercised. And how many Twinkies have you had today?
What are you talking about?
Oh Carl, please. There's like a million Twinkie wrappers on the floor of your car. You're not fooling anybody.
All right. All right. So I admit it, I enjoy one occasionally. Is there something so wrong with that? Look, Molly, I am under a great deal of stress! What do you want from me?

Oh my god this is a bad film. Actually, that's being unfair to bad films, as this is true effluent of the purest variety. Poorly written, unfunny, stupid and very irritating, it made me want to leave, but unfortunately I was in the middle of a row and it was tricky to escape. I was possibly also paralysed by the brain-melting power of this movie. Even my 10 year old Godson found it unfunny, and he doesn't have the most sophisticated sense of humour.
Anyway, Matt Dillon, you should have known better. I can stand this kind of drivel from the totally one dimensional Owen Wilson, but you should know better! If you can spot that 'Crash' is a good script, then what happened when you read this one? It isn't 'Something About Mary' is it? It wasn't even a comedy, really, was it? Wake up!
