Dave's Rating:

2.0

… failure of a comedy.

Who's in It: Owen Wilson, Matt Dillon, Kate Hudson, Michael Douglas

The Basics: Wilson is getting typecast. He is, once again, the goofy weird buddy who doesn't have to grow up. He almost ruins Dillon and Hudson's marriage but winds up saving the day, the same day he nearly ruins early in the movie by being a goofy weird buddy who doesn't have to grow up.

What's the Deal? Are you in total mushy love with Wilson, a k a the "Butterscotch Stallion"? Then you'll dig every moment of this failure of a comedy. Seriously, if you aren't, like, the president of his fan club, you'll wonder why you bought a ticket, because he's the only remotely funny thing going on.

Help! My Wacky Friend Is Wrecking My Life! Do wacky friends ever really wreck your life? Don't you, in real life, tell the wacky friend to knock it off? You do. They're called conversations. People have them all the time — except in movies like this. Because then the movie would be over, and you'd find something else. Something actually fun to do with your life.

Who's Cool: Once again, former Freaks and Geeks guy Seth Rogen (the "You know how I know you're gay?" guy in The 40-Year-Old Virgin) makes every lumpy moment he has on-screen a funny one. This guy should actually star in something, instead of always being the supporting comic relief.

Cameo Alert: Lance Armstrong pops up for a moment. But you sort of knew he would the second Wilson's character decides to be a professional cyclist. Why does he decide to be a professional cyclist? Just because, that's why.
