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

Goofs

Opening Sequence of the film, Eddie and Doc are walking down a steep hill sidewalk and doc asks about "anything exciting" in Eddie's life. There are NO cars anywhere near them. The very next cut Eddie is answering the question and they are on a level sidewalk and there are cars parked in the street and behind them over doc's head. They also pass the same group of seated sidewalk coffee drinkers twice. See more »

Quotes

Doc: So, what's new Eddie? Anything exciting?
Eddie Cantrow: Ah, yeah, we just got those new Nike Sasquatch drivers in the store, so that's been kind of cool.
Doc: Let me rephrase the question. You been crushin' any pussy?

Flat Out Bad
5 October 2007 | by StationsCreationSee all my reviews

There is really only one way I can put this...DO NOT SPEND MONEY TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!! In fact, don't go unless your friend is literally paying you. It has a few funny moments, but that doesn't make up for the boring, played out nonsense that is the 45 minute gaps between funny scenes. The story is bad, the acting is sub-par, and quite frankly, I was trying to figure out ways to get my money back half way through the film. To go further, they shorten the funny scenes, and make the played out, annoying romance scenes way too long. Yes, there is nudity...but the nudity is not worth the money.

And if you do go to see it, though I don't know why you would, watch out for the highly unoriginal scenes that will remind you of romantic comedies that have come out in the past 5 years. I'd be more specific, but I'd hate to spoil any part of this horrendous piece of garbage.

DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE!!!
