"My beef is not with you old woman...."
I had an honest laugh only once during this movie and the above line did it for me. For a movie that's supposed to be a comedy, that's sad.
Dan (Robin Williams) and Charlie (John Travolta) are best friends who run a sports marketing company. Dan is divorced and we find out he had a one night stand not long afterwards. Charlie is a fun loving, ladies man. The two are on the verge of landing a huge business deal with a Japanese company when things get complicated. What do I mean by complicated? How about 7 year old twins! Not complicated enough? What if I told you that the twins are Dan's kids from his one night stand? Apparently he slipped one passed the goalie. Oh, you figured that out already? Well I figured out the rest of the movie shortly after the kids arrived. Yet I continued to watch until the end....we all make mistakes.
Every attempt at humor you could see coming from a mile away and besides that, the attempts weren't funny. Justin Long makes a cameo and was the only role to provide a chuckle (he also had the old woman line). Seth Green played Craig, Dan and John's third wheel, and I normally think he is very funny but not this time around.
Oh yeah, there's a scene where Dan and Charlie play ultimate frisbee with some camp counselors and it's a complete rip off of the basketball scene from the movie Cable Guy.
It's supposed to be a family movie and kids might be amused but it's the parents who have to fork over the cash to rent it. It would have been nice if the writers would have kept that in mind. My advice, spend your money on gas. Or rent Cable Guy, just don't let the kids watch that one.
