Storyline

A man finds out that what you don't say to a friend is just as important as what you do is this story of how far you can bend a brotherly bond before it snaps. Since college, confirmed bachelor Ronny (Vaughn) and happily married Nick (James) have been through thick and thin. Now partners in an auto design firm, the two pals are vying to land a dream project that would launch their company. Ronny's girlfriend, Beth (Connelly), and Nick's wife, Geneva (Ryder), are by their sides. But Ronny's world is turned upside down when he inadvertently sees Geneva out with another man and makes it his mission to get answers. As the amateur investigation dissolves into mayhem, he learns that Nick has a few secrets of his own. Now, with the clock ticking and pressure mounting on the biggest presentation of their careers, Ronny must decide what will happen if he reveals the truth to his best friend.

It was...OK
1 August 2013 | by admcdowSee all my reviews

I didn't hate this movie. It had good moments but honestly I didn't know it was a comedy until I looked the movie up maybe 90% of the way through it. Then it became obvious...FORCED COMEDY. I think I laughed out loud once, when Channing Tatum's character told Vince Vaughn's character "drive safe". THAT was hilarious. Overall this movie was a full meal...full of corn, cheese and sap. I really believe that if they went the route of a true drama it could've been a good movie with some funny moments instead of forced comedy & corny, cheesy, sappy drama. Most of the moments with Channing Tatum's character were utterly ridiculous. I can't count how many times I cringed & said to myself "this is stupid" during the fight scene. But I'm writing this review for a reason. In a small way, I enjoyed it. Heck I watched it all the way through. The final scene was good, though definitely corny, cheesy AND sappy. I liked Jennifer Connelly. Was she the stubborn chick in Bad Boys? Anyway, I liked it...a little bit, and I can't really explain why.
