A bounty hunter learns that his next target is his ex-wife, a reporter working on a murder cover-up. Soon after their reunion, the always-at-odds duo find themselves on a run-for-their-lives adventure.
After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and 400 costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
Danny (Adam Sandler) must engage Katherine (Jennifer Aniston), his faithful assistant, to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife. Danny must pretend that he is married, because he lied to his dream girl, Palmer (Brooklyn Decker) the most gorgeous woman in the world. To keep the woman he loves, covering up one lie soon turns into many lies. Written by
Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

Although Sandler's sophomoric antics are obviously drawn from a pool of at least limited capabilities, often the viewer wonders if it is talent or just connections that get him into so many films. The formula is so thin from overuse that it's frayed edges are often the most perceptible substance. Adam, you're just not handsome enough to play Romeo in romp after romp. In this, his two Juliet's are both such shallowly perfect physical specimens as to leave the viewer wondering if the conspicuous consumerism so often the hallmark of Hollywood is not eclipsed by the shameless superficiality. Besides blonds with bursting boobs we are also treated to plastic surgery jokes, grating foreign accents of several flavors and inevitable gay bashing. Top it off with Sandler's repeated ad nauseam soul patch joke.
