Marshall thinks the trip is about re-establishing their friendship, while Sam has ulterior motives - namely, trying to win back Zoe, a woman he loves.

We were just saying funny stuff and Max came up to me and said, 'Ask, 'Who is that woman?' I had no idea that he was going to say, 'That's my wife.'" See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sam Davis: [reading for children's book] He would not take no for an answer. Our young hero traveled a great many leagues beneath the ocean's surface to find his shackled mermaid. And he had no intention of leaving without her. However, the evil Sea King had other plans. Like a mad man driven by love and revenge, he unsheathed his spear gun and fired!

Old versus New
3 December 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The movie has quite a lot going for it. Especially story wise but also with a very strong lead performance by Uma Thurman. It is very important that you believe her, because if not all the effort would be for nothing. And while quite a lot seems ridiculous (the male friendship even though there is some shattering, but almost too late to be really plausible), it all works somehow.

It's not your standard romantic comedy, that is for sure. The male lead is an obvious indication for that. And while some strands would've been nice to be explored (the red head you might have seen in Lost and other stuff she's done could've used a bigger role), it can touch you, if you let it. The male antagonist gets a bit too cliché at the end and almost unworthy of Umas love/affection in the first place
