Mindless, stupid fun!

This is not thought provoking, or will win any awards. That's the way it should be with movies like this. I laughed and laughed with this movie, and some scenes are rather cringe-worthy - in a positive way. As a middle aged, frumpy, dumpy old dad, I can relate to the thought of "what it would be like" for a fleeting moment. Only to be brought back to the painful reality I am a middle aged, frumpy, dumpy old man.

The movie is over the top, loud, stupid, and just downright hilarious. Especially the house tour scene. I howled at the dialogue when others in my household looked at me like I was some idiot. They were not wrong.

If rude, crude, non-PC jokes is not your thing, I would avoid it. Otherwise, sit down and watch it. Not much thought is needed to enjoy.

I let a movie age for awhile before I put a rating on it -- if it is one that I can watch over and over again and enjoy it as much as I did the first time (or occasionally even more as time goes on) then I will give it 5 stars. This is one of those movies that I could literally watch every week without getting tired of it. There is some gross out stuff in here but it is more than tempered by some sweet and mature underpinnings. Maybe you have to be an older (and married) guy or gal to fully appreciate the humor where this one treads, so it won't necessarily crack up the youngsters who haven't experienced kids, marriage, and the secret desires that are better left in the fantasy bin. Owen Wilson and Jason Sudekis make great sidekicks and the ladies are well cast and quite lovely. I could do without the full frontal male nudity which will make most men writhe uncomfortably and feel inadequate in this case -- unless it is reciprocated with a female -- but alas not to be! Super funny movie and one of my all time favorites.

Good movie, -1* is for Multiformat selection but only getting BluRay
Verified purchase
Funny movie. Decided to buy it when I saw it on sale. Selected Multiformat option to get digital code with it, but only got BluRay despite not selecting BluRay option. Amazon did refund me and let me keep the movie after I reached out and explained the situation.

I Like It

I think everybody has those movies...you know, those go-to movies that probably haven't won an Oscar, they don't make you re-evaluate all of your convictions or view life in a different way, but when you're snowed-in for the night or you want some comfort on a Sunday afternoon because you know the weekend will soon be over...you turn to them. You can't really explain WHY you like them so much, but they make you happy and warm? This is one of those movies for me. The characters are true to their traits, it isn't sanctimonious or trying to be something it's not, and it's set in beautiful New England, so there's not a lot to NOT like about it, is there? Give this movie a chance

Best golf scene ever
Verified purchase
I love both main characters they we’re funny. I really liked the scene in the house when they we’re laughing and talking about big mouth v@@@@@ers as the guests were watching and their wives, I didn’t like the scene when Owen Wilson passed out in the jacuzzi, I thought they went to far with nudity of the two men Who pulled him and out. Funny dialogue.

"soul mate" newlyweds and singletons don't bother
Verified purchase
my husband and I haven't laughed so hard since "wanderlust" (another must see for married couples) this movie is so funny because a lot of men make the stupid threat of "maybe I should just go find me a hot blonde who will" and as women we reply"go right ahead and try to pick up on the bigboob twentysomething" just so they stop living in the fantasy world where those girls want to just have sex with a middle class lazy 30 something with children. well.. spoiler alert....in this movie the wives do let them have a "hall pass"and it is a big reality check for the men and women!

Not A Life Changing Event Movie
Verified purchase
The Farrellys ruled the roost in the Nineties with "There's Something About Mary" their masterwork. Somewhere around "Stuck On You" they lost their way. Meanwhile Jud Apatow and Todd Phillips passed the boys in the outrageous comedy department. The Farrellys try to reclaim their throne here but no dice. They appropriate elements of Apatow and Phillips with some of their own fluorish but it's an uneasy mixture. This is far from a bad film but it's hardly a good one. I did like Owen Wilson but Jason Sudeikis was something of an oaf. This is a case of the Farrellys being victims of their previous success and being overcome by their progeny.
