This movie lacks true humour, and what humour it purports to have is in fact hackneyed, irrelevant, and caters exclusively to men over 45 (who are married). While this is not necessarily a bad thing, it is clear that Ben Stiller’s shtick piqued years ago and will not regain momentum. He is funny when paired with our favorite pretty boy addiction king Owen Wilson. Owen Wilson exudes a charisma (likely from narcotics abuse) that few others in the comedy business are capable of displaying. Together they have been pure comedy gold. Separately, only Wilson has succeeds while Stiller’s attempts at being humorous have fallen rather flat.
The best parts of this film are centered around Jerry Stiller’s one line responses to Ben Stiller’s questions and concerns about his obviously failed marriage. "How many pussies have you crushed lately?" is a great example fo the Jerry Stiller killer one-liner. Now there is a comedian who never ages and in fact becomes more hilarious with time! The storyline is improbable at best, at worst, it has been replayed hundreds of times before. This movie should be watched at the drive in theater. After watching the movie for twenty minutes, it is best to make this a drive away experience.
