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.
An affable underachiever finds out he's fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.
Set in the world of mega-churches in which a former Deadhead-turned-born again-Christian finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega-church who will do anything to protect their larger-than-life pastor.
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

I Watched This Waiting To Laugh - But I'm Still Waiting
If this were marketed as a serious discussion on the boundaries/obligations of friendship and difficulties caused by infidelity, I would say, yeah it pretty much hit the mark, but as a comedy. it left a lot to be desired. Usually, if a comedy is this bad, I mention the music. But I really didn't notice the music. What I noticed was a lot of very angry people and nothing close to funny.
One of my college professors once said no conflict/no story. As far as this being a serious drama, this story seems to try to manufacture needless conflict in every relationship it details and fails to make any of this conflict interesting. Jennifer Connelly, Vince Vaughn, Wynona Rider, Channing Tatum, Kevin James, and Ron Howard wasted their talents here, shockingly.
