Best friends Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) each have been married for a long time, and they are showing signs of restlessness.

Ratings & Reviews

  • The slapstick and action comedy interludes are haphazardly executed at best, and matters aren't helped by the film's incredibly ugly look. show more

  • Still, the Farrellys have a distinct touch that carries their dubious premise across. They bring back the toilet humor of yore and make it shocking and funny again. show more

  • Most gaspworthy is that this raunchy, transgressive comedy about would-be adulterers turns out to be a hot, wet reaffirmation of marriage. show more
