I thought it sucked pretty much. Two people get together, break up after two years, and then spend a miserable 2 weeks in the condo they both don’t want to move out of. The movie sold itself as some sort of summer comedy like Anchorman or Old School and it was more of a dark comedy than anything else. In fact I can’t remember a single scene where I heard people laughing (out loud at least).
What was even stranger about the story was that Aniston’s character breaks up with Vaughn’s in an attempt to make him appreciate her more. What the hell? What’s worse is that her character spends all this time trying to make him jelous, and then he kind of does the same to her and all of this happens before they get to that predictable scene where they “talk about it”. I just didn’t get it.
Like I said, it was more of a dark comedy, there were scenes where I thought woah, this is way too heavy. Then of course there were scenes where they spent 5 minutes setting up a joke you can see coming from half a mile away.
I used to think Dodgeball was Vaughn’s worst comedy but this one takes the lead. It was kind of weird seeing him an Jon Favreau together on the screen. They’ve come a long way from “Swingers” that’s for sure.
Bottom Line: 1/5
