That aside, I appreciated a lot about this movie. The dialogue generally and the banter between the guys in particular was spot on. There were some killer moments in the script. I also really appreciated the coming together message. This wasn't about guys doing stupid things that rightfully should lead to a break up with their wives; no, it was clear throughout that there was a genuine interest in saving the marriages, and that's not entirely common these days. It's an important message in a culture that often glorifies greener grass, and in reality that's rarely true... unless you're one of the few people who have legitimately dead metaphorical grass.
That said, there were some quirks about this film that took it down a notch or two for me, and it was mostly in either the script or the editing - hard to know which for sure. While the dialogue was fantastic, the scenes felt a little jumbled together. Almost every scene was critical to the story line, but it cut fairly abruptly enough times that I noticeably felt there should have been a smoother transition. It could have been more graceful. There were two scenes in particular that were totally out of place and while they shook me out of lumping this with every other romcom, I'm not sure they should have been in there in the end.
Overall, can't rate it a 10, but I will buy this for the underlying message and for a decent handful of good laughs.
