A married woman realizes how unhappy her marriage really is, and that her life needs to go in a different direction. After a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey to "find herself".
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.

This movie just isn't very funny, endearing or involving as a dramedy. It runs out of steam early. Just aren't many funny situations. And those that could have been funny were done better before (eg the speed dating scene). There could have been better situations with the marriage counseling theme but the one with Alison Hannigan is okay.
Wanted to watch this mainly for the likable attractive cast. Unfortunately the material they are given to work with isn't good. Mandy Moore isn't the best actress but her lines aren't really that great so can't blame her. Kellan Lutz's character isn't convincing. He doesn't look like he is ready to settle down at all more like some big frat boy. Jessica Szhor's character is more likable than in Gossip Girl. James Brolin is a bit miscast. It's nice to see Jane Seymour acting again - haven't seen her since "Wedding Crashers".
Overall watch it once if you are fan of the cast but bear in mind it just isn't that good.
