Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
In Atlanta on business, straight-laced and overly analytical architect Peter Highman is flying home to Los Angeles and his wife Sarah for the imminent birth of their first child. However, traveling by plane no longer becomes an option when he and a fellow passenger, aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay, are kicked off the plane, which was caused by Ethan's social inappropriateness, due to being generally unaware, exacerbated by Peter's temper at a situation against his sensibilities. Peter, who ends up without money or his suitcase, is forced to accept Ethan's offer of a shared car ride to Los Angeles, Ethan who is looking for his big acting break. For Peter, this partnership is one made in hell, but he feels he has no other choice. Peter obviously wants to take as direct and as quick a route as possible, while he is at Ethan's mercy as the person with the driver's license, car rental and money. They get into one misadventure after another on this trip, with the same issue at each ... Written by

Ethan pronounces his last name the way it is spelled. However, the correct pronunciation of "Tremblay" is "TROMblay." See more »
I just had the strangest dream. It's Friday. We're at the hospital. But it's not a hospital, it's a, a, a forest of sorts. And I know that because right next to you there's a bear. A grizzly, cooling his feet in a stream. And all of a sudden, you begin to deliver, and I can't get to you. But the bear can. And the next thing I know, he is holding our beautiful baby boy. And here's where it gets odd. Uh, he chews the cord. But, strangely, I'm okay with it. That's gotta be a good sign.

I generally liked the musical choices of this film. It's too bad that it's the only positive thing I could find to comment on. But when you have unlikable characters in unfunny situations - and by that I mean pretty much EVERY character in every situation - it makes for a movie that seems much longer than its 95 minutes.
Sadly the fine talent is wasted. Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis don't seem to be enjoying themselves. Jamie Foxx appears disgusted by the whole thing and Michelle Monaghan had a part took no special skill to play. And the dog? Gosh, the dog has to cute or funny or both right? Nope - worse dog part I've ever seen.
It's really painful to watch.
