Vince Vaughn and Kevin James will play best friends and business partners, and Vaughn’s character is tortured when he observes his pal’s wife getting intimate with another man in a restaurant. Should he tell?
I had high hopes for this film after screening it for the first several minutes. There was little language in it and it seemed to be a buddy movie with some laughs in it. Then, it changed direction, suddenly, like a locomotive. The next thing I knew I discovered that it is very disjointed with several subplots going on at the same time and the language becomes pervasive and the buddies get upset with each other. It was no longer fun. It’s too bad. In one scene Vince Vaughn’s character prays to God for his buddy (Kevin James) whose wife is being unfaithful and Vaughn also adds that he would appreciate the good Lord blessing the deal he and his friend have in place at work. It was both a nice and a funny moment. I wish there would have been more like that one.
Sure, the scene with the buddies (Vince Vaughn and Kevin James) dancing with each other is funny. But the loads of language, the cheating of a spouse, the sexual moments and one buddy punching another is just too over-the-top for not only me, but for our Dove families. We cannot award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this movie due to the excesses listed in the content listing below.
