As other reviewers said, the movie earned its R rating in one 35-second scene. Even that was a little unbelievable, because the guys walked in to the strip club and the wife, a few seconds behind, spotted them both in the midst of very close and personal lapdances. Usually, the point of strip clubs is for the girls to keep the guys there spending money, and the guys are there to enjoy the view, so they're not going to be so quick. I digress. However, the wife's shock and outrage are quite believable; disillunsionment, a hemorrhage of intimacy like that can be quite a blow. Imagine stumbling across your wife passionately kissing another man.
I will say that one of the best scenes in the movie is when the divorcee neighbor is drunk, and she tries to tell the two wives how great being divorced is, "how freeing." Then she gets a wistful look on her face and says, "Fear is a terrible age for being single. You look at the stranger lying in the bed next to you, and you hope he's not a psychopath, and if he is, that he'll finish you quickly. You're forty, fifty years old, and you realize that whatever good you might have salvaged from your marriage is buried under too much hurt."
Bottom line on the movie, if you were a fan of Paul Reiser's Couplehood and other similar works, or are into movies that are about relationships deeper than Hugh Grant/Sandra Bullock, then you might enjoy this movie.Read more ›
In this film, the "crisis situation" is that two married men are caught by their wives going to a strip club to "let off some steam." While such an incident is pretty banal in my life, it causes the two wives to go through an emotional Armageddon.
The remainder of the movie (basically a real-time film) sees the two husbands & two wives try and justify their position / actions to their spouses. A fairly trivial matter escalates into a sort of marital nuclear war.
If you like Romantic comedies, this film is certain to be appealing. While it's a bit dry in some spots, it does include some funny moments. Paul Reiser is always fun to watch, and it's good to see him champion the male-point-of-view in this farce.

This movie seemed too talky and too preachy to be sufficiently entertaining. Plus not much really happens - not much real action, unless you call men and women whining about each... Read morePublished on November 21, 2013 by Amazon Customer
