Two hard-partying brothers place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo.
Greg Mottola's skill in directing the high-powered action especially impressed his producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald. Parkes said: "We were thrilled at how Greg delivered the action. In many comedies, action can be a silly add-on, but Greg was committed to doing it right. Those scenes are very satisfying." See more »

I think they're having sex. God damn it, we don't have time for this. I mean, they're supposed to be here in 45 minutes. Nope, they are done.

This film was a lot of fun! A suburban couple dedicated to their kids, careers and cul-de-sac neighborhood have their orderly lives upended by new neighbors who seem a bit larger than life and turn out to be just that. The film has fun with the characters (whose personalities drive a lot of the humor), their reactions to their changing situations, with everyone trying to keep their priorities straight. The conventions of spy movies are entertainingly employed and spoofed. Overall, a good mix of humor and action, and also has a sense of respect for all the characters.
Being in a similar stage of life and circumstances to the main characters (minus the car chases, explosions and such) likely added to the enjoyment.
