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

Miranda states she is drinking a Mind Eraser, however her drink is red and it has tequila in it - both not true. A Mind Eraser would not be either since it contains only vodka, coffee liqueur and soda water. See more »
I smell something weird down here. Smells like ya'll been hitting the Devil's lettuce.

Approximately midway through the end credits, there is a scene showing Lila (Malin Akerman) having sex in a bed screaming "cock me" over and over. Cut to the next morning and Lila is shown sleeping in bed with a smile and the camera pans to the left showing a donkey smoking a cigarette in the corner sitting in a chair. See more »
The UK release was cut, the distributor chose to remove a strong visual sex reference, sight of a donkey's erect penis in close proximity to a woman, in order to obtain a 15 classification. An uncut 18 classification was available. See more »

It's no "Something about Mary"
The horrible crude scenes leave a bad taste and overshadow any funny scenes. I think the Farrelly Brothers wanted to recapture the success of "There's Something About Mary" -- but they've flopped hard.
The universe of "Mary" was completely wacky and any naughty parts just fit into that universe. This one feels like there were too many screenwriters tinkering with it. (5 are listed). Someone wrote a mainstream romantic comedy script -- then someone else (The Brothers, I'm guessing) came along and just stuck in gross shocking bits.
It's very uneven. It loses steam in the third act. Has a very unsatisfying and unpleasant ending. Carlos Mencia is obnoxious. Ben is looking too old to be playing these parts. Meanwhile, the girls still look 25.
