Storyline

Eddie is forty, owns a sporting-goods store, and is still single. After watching his ex-fiancée walk down the aisle, he meets Lila, an environmental researcher, who seems too good to be true. Pressured by his father and best friend, Eddie pops the question and marries Lila after only 6 weeks. However, as he almost instantly discovers, his new bride is a nightmare with more baggage than he can handle. She's immature, foolish, a monster in bed, owes a tremendous amount of money to various sources, and as it turns out, is only a volunteer and doesn't actually have a job. While on their honeymoon in Cabo, Eddie meets Miranda, a down-to-earth lacrosse coach who is visiting with her family. Sparks fly, and Eddie falls for her. Now comes the tricky part of breaking off his marriage to crazy Lila, all while keeping the truth from Miranda about why he's in Cabo in the first place... Written by Lex

Quotes

Eddie Cantrow: [about Lila] She doesn't have a great sense of humor.
Doc: Are you out of your mind? Funny's a male gene, you idiot. Haven't you ever noticed whenever you see a really funny girl, she's a little mannish? Think about it. Lily Tomlin, Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell...
Mac: Oh, I got a thing for Ellen DeGeneres though. I do, I have to admit it. I think she's great, I think she's hot. Great ass. Check it out.

Depressing
26 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw the pre-screening. I laughed twice so I'm giving it 2 stars. This movie makes you hate Stiller's character even though he is supposed to be the hero. He's creepy and a liar, yet he dates gorgeous women because they have no better options.

Stiller comes across in typical Stiller fashion, with quirky behaviors and odd humor. The film tries to be light hearted but ends up being quite depressing and not believable. Only a socially dysfunctional audience will see this film as romantic. The audience that has learned to create positive relationships may walk out half way through.

With a personality like that, Stiller's character would end up alone. Guaranteed.
