unlikeable subject matter, but salvaged a little something
8 September 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

The Farrelly brothers are once again stuck on something uncomfortable. Are they really saying that a pass to cheat is something to root for? The fact is the subject isn't that fun to watch. The whole concept is truly unlikeable but they were able to salvage a few laughs out of the whole thing.

Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis are extremely likable actors. They were able to take some of ickyness out of the cheating. But the way they go about their adventures really diminishes their marriages. It doesn't help that their wives are cheating with other people.

The Farrelly brothers really need to drop all these uncomfortable themes. It's as if they are trying for highest degree of difficulty. Either that or make these much more darker. Make it truly a black comedy.
