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.
Handsome, romantic, sexy gentile Charlie enjoys his honeymoon with liberal-Jewish marriage counselor Ava. It's cut short when her parents Bradley and Betty, who always seemed the perfect couple, suddenly border on divorce over an old affair and poorly matched expectations. Worse, in turn they invite themselves to move in and drive the newly-weds crazy. Ethics prevent Ava from taking them on as clients and the colleagues she refers to prove hopelessly inept. Meanwhile Charlie's impulsive buddy Gerber, the eternal bachelor party animal, has married Polish green-card-chaser Kasia. Written by
Hi... what was all the yelling about?
Just your mother's normal kvetching.
Ohhhh... would you stop talking like that! This isn't a production of Fiddler on the Roof!
Would you just relax and stop acting like some kind of meshuggeneh in front of our daughters!
What does that even mean? Jesus!
Okay, can we just take this into my office... please? Right into my office... thank you... come on.

Kellan Lutz's character is charming and likable but the same cannot be said about Mandy Moore's character. Ava is obnoxious and prideful who thinks that because she is now a marriage psychologist she knows all about marriage. Another flat character is Ava's younger sister. She is unprofessional and although they put her for comedic relief, she does not succeed. The sister is supposed to be the young wise one but the lines that they give her are too predictable. I found the plot boring, foreseeable, and unrealistic. I just did not like it but that is not to say it did not have some good scenes. In Mandy Moore's defense, her acting was fine but her lines distasteful/disagreeable. The emotions/actions she puts into her parents relationship are more of child not wanting their parents' divorce instead of an adult who can understand that sometimes relationships just do not work out.
