Two hard-partying brothers place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo.
Greg Mottola, the movie's director, credits stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director Steven Ritzi with staging the action for maximum impact and thrills. But he and the cast give a special shout-out to actor Jon Hamm, who did much of the driving himself. "Jon did some really great donuts [elaborate car maneuvers] in the Mercedes we were all jammed into," said co-star Gal Gadot. Hamm is modest about his contributions to the scene, noting that to prepare for it, he "drove around an empty parking lot for hours to get used to the car and its moves". Hamm added: "Having that extra time behind the wheel really helped me improve. The key was to not to just make it fun, but to also make it safe. Steven Ritzi made that happen for all of us."

The Jones' Mercedes has a New York State plate on the rear of the car but not in the front. New York State requires tags on both the front and the back. See more »
The average Suburban family gets a new neighbors, who are more than what they seem. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher made a cute couple in the movie. very good comedy duo in an mediocre film.
Jon Hamm is a fantastic straight man for the comedy that Galifianakis was dishing out.
Gal Gadot is impressive. She's the one who has to keep up with the other three and she does a good job. i don't think I've seen her do anything outside the Fast and Furious movies so it was nice to see that she can do something else.
I know i'm sitting here writing about the film, but for the most part there is really is not anything to write about. It gives you enough laughs so I feel like I did not waste my cash, but it's definitely not a movie you'll remember down the road. Nothing spectacular.
