QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A man tries to figure out what to do when he discovers that his best friend's wife is having an affair.
PLOT:
Ronny Valentine (VINCE VAUGHN) and Nick Brannen (KEVIN JAMES) have been friends since college and now are partners in a business venture that designs innovative car engine designs. They've recently pitched an electric engine with muscle car sounds and related bravado to Dodge, and are now working with automotive consultant Susan Warner (QUEEN LATIFAH) to bring it to fruition.

Yet, Nick -- who's the brains behind the designs while Ronny does the sales pitches -- isn't completely confident they can pull this off, and is stressing out about that. Thus, when Ronny learns that Nick's wife, Geneva (WINONA RYDER), is having an affair with the heavily tattooed Zip (CHANNING TATUM), he's faced with a dilemma. He knows he should tell him, but seeing how the auto deal is affecting his friend's health, he isn't sure how best to proceed. Nick's senses that something is up with Ronny, but figures he's nervous about proposing to his live-in girlfriend, Beth (JENNIFER CONNELLY).

As he wrangles over his options, Nick's behavior soon makes everyone think he's fallen off the wagon and has returned to his prior gambling addiction. As things spiral out of control, Ronny must decide when, where and how to break the bad news to his friend.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teenagers might be interested, but other than them and fans of anyone in the cast, it doesn't seem too likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For mature thematic elements involving sexual content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
