When Ronnie Valentine (Vince Vaughn) spots his best friend’s wife with another man he faces an awkward social quandary. Does he tell his friend (Kevin James) about it or wait until after their important business deal?
With Ron Howard (Cocoon, Happy Days) directing this was never going to be a slapstick comedy. It’s more of a humorous take on a very uncomfortable situation and as usual Howard found a part for his oddball brother Clint, who was the child star of Gentle Ben.
If you’re expecting Wedding Crashers or Dodgeball than give this a miss but if you fancy a more thoughtful comedy with a top level cast, check it out.
Ric’s Rating: Good.
