Starring: Ben Stiller, Jennifer Aniston, Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Plot: When he catches his newly wed wife making the beast of two backs with a scuba-diving instructor on their honeymoon night, Reuben Feffer (Stiller) is understandably a tad pissed off. But, rather than wreaking a brutal, blood-caked revenge the straight-laced insurance assessor throws caution to the wind – ending up in a risky relationship with Polly (Aniston).
It may well be littered with all the rom-com clichés but it isn’t the wince-inducing feelgood cheesefest that you might expect. Stiller is assuringly humorous, and Anniston is assuringly gorgeous – yet both are brilliantly upstaged by a fat man (Hoffman) and a ferret. Laugh? We certainly did.
