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.
Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
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
Lance Armstrong: who is Dupree's inspiration, makes three cameos in the movie. First, he is seen in the biking video, to which Dupree exercises (despite appearances, this is not stock footage, but filmed specifically for this movie). Second, he appears in the dream sequence, where Carl imagines Dupree and Molly on Bob's boat (Armstrong is wearing Dupree's "Say Hello to my little friend" gnome shirt). Finally, in a brief after-the-credits scene, he is shown reading Dupree's book, in exactly the same way that Dupree was seen earlier reading Armstrong's book. See more »
When Carl came home from work he poured a drink, then walked away from the bottle to talk to Dupree. In the next shot the bottle is in his hand and in the next shot the glass is again in his hand. See more »
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!
