In 2002, two rival Olympic ice skaters were stripped of their gold medals and permanently banned from men's single competition. Presently, however, they've found a loophole that will allow them to qualify as a pairs team.
John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
Brennan Huff and Dale Doback are both about 40 when Brennan's mom and Dale's dad marry. The sons still live with the parents so they must now share a room. Initial antipathy threatens the household's peace and the parents' relationship. Dad lays down the law: both slackers have a week to find a job. Out of the job search and their love of music comes a pact that leads to friendship but more domestic disarray compounded by the boys' sleepwalking. Hovering nearby are Brennan's successful brother and his lonely wife: the brother wants to help sell his step-father's house, the wife wants Dale's attention, and the newlyweds want to retire and sail the seven seas. Can harmony come from the discord? Written by
Brennan says he smoked pot with Johnny Hopkins and Sloan Kettering. There is a Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, which is also mentioned in the lyrics to the opening song "A-Punk" by the New York City band Vampire Weekend, and although it's not exactly called "Johnny", the famous Johns Hopkins hospital is in Baltimore, Maryland.

At the Wine Mixer, Dale plays drum rolls with yarn mallets, but it sounds like he's using drum sticks. Performing a drum roll with mallets would sound very different, and be a lot more difficult. See more »
I am a huge fan of Will Ferrell normally but I just finished watching this movie and feel I need to warn others that it is the worst movie with him in it that I have ever seen.
The actual story went nowhere and was boring, the characters were lame and the jokes just weren't as funny as other Will Ferrell classics. The 'toilet humour' in it is terrible, you would think this movie was made for 8 year olds or people with a similar aged sense of humour.
The high point of the whole movie for me was when the end credits came up because i'm not one to leave a movie halfway through (although I was very tempted with this one!).
So before anyone actually watches this movie, if you like Will Ferrell movies it DOES NOT at all mean that you will like this one, I thought it was a huge let down! and I want that hour and a half of my life back!
