Ed­die Cal­low (Ben Stiller) is a life­long com­mit­ment-phobe who fi­nally finds Ms Right in Lila (Malin Ak­er­man, pic­tured) and de­cides to set­tle down to a life of wed­ded bliss. The cou­ple cel­e­brate their nup­tials with a trip to Mex­ico and Ed­die dis­cov­ers hon­ey­moons are in­deed a time for ro­mance. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s ex­tralove mar­i­tal that Ed­die finds in Mi­randa (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’s Michelle Mon­aghan), as Lila re­veals a seri es of dis­turb­ing habits that only drive her beloved fur­ther away. What fol­lows is the full Far­relly broth­ers (Dumb & Dum­ber) treat­ment of Neil Si­mon’s 1972 script, as the un­lik­able Ed­die tries to trade in old for new. A fun flick. ★★★
