When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
A man finds out that what you don't say to a friend is just as important as what you do is this story of how far you can bend a brotherly bond before it snaps. Since college, confirmed bachelor Ronny (Vaughn) and happily married Nick (James) have been through thick and thin. Now partners in an auto design firm, the two pals are vying to land a dream project that would launch their company. Ronny's girlfriend, Beth (Connelly), and Nick's wife, Geneva (Ryder), are by their sides. But Ronny's world is turned upside down when he inadvertently sees Geneva out with another man and makes it his mission to get answers. As the amateur investigation dissolves into mayhem, he learns that Nick has a few secrets of his own. Now, with the clock ticking and pressure mounting on the biggest presentation of their careers, Ronny must decide what will happen if he reveals the truth to his best friend. Written by

When I first saw the poster for this movie I knew I wanted to watch this movie. I like actors and actresses on the cast list and I thought this would make a great movie. But I got the impression that this was supposed to be an hilarious flick but I was all wrong. This movie had its funny moments and the storyline was fine enough.
Vince Vaughn & Kevin James add some great chemistry to this movie, they should make some more movies together but it probably needs to be movies placed more in the comedy genre.
In my opinion this movie wasn't at all as bad as people say it is, I actually liked it a bunch. But that said I can totally understand the disappointment of people's expectations. However this movie is great for a relaxing Sunday afternoon because it is very straight-forward and doesn't require you to wonder too much.
