Ramsey: I still think you should've gone to the hospital.
Lumpy: Mm-mmm, no, no. No, Duluth is... like umm... two hours away from here. I took a hot shower. I'll be fine.
Ramsey: Well, you look purple and bloated.
Lumpy: I always look bloated.
[pause]
Lumpy: It's okay, it's okay. I work really hard to look this bloated. It's a point of pride for me.

Fantastic film worth watching.
20 December 2013 | by kenziemaySee all my reviews

Excellent film. I wouldn't really call it a chick flick, it's far better than that. The comedy isn't persistent which I liked most, just a refreshing story about a newly wed couple trying to grasp at the loss of their friend, a funeral to take care of and cancelling their honeymoon. The characters were likable and it even threw in a little twist toward the mid-end which you may or may not have seen coming. It's heartwarming and down to earth without most of the cliché nonsense you see in most comedies, a real nice surprise.

Fantastic cast. Justin Long and Jess Weixler make a great team. It was nice to see another movie with Tyler Labine, he seems like a such a fun, lovable guy and what a great actor! If you're hesitant, definitely go for it. I give it a solid 8/10.
