    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    Designed as a disposable commodity, it's a film I'd dispose of with no further ado, except for what it says about minimum standards in a certain tacky niche of the movie business, as well as for what it suggests, in its lunkheaded way, about the perils that marriage may pose.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    Jason Lee seems to have been bitten by a vampire who sucked out all his prickly charisma. You see the promise of stardom dribbling through his fingers.

Iffy for 14+

Lame, crude descendent of Meet the Parents.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has gross humor and very mature material for a PG-13, including graphic references to a sexually transmitted disease, masturbation, drugs, and adultery. Characters use very strong language and there is social drinking to excess, at one point resulting in the encounter that triggers the plot. A character is beat up and arrested for possession of cocaine. There is also such a weird sort of homophobic vibe to some of the jokes.

  • Families can talk about the way Paul and Becky think about fears and what his behavior and attraction to Becky should tell him about his plan to marry his boss' daughter.
