An overqualified cast goes through the motions in a condescendingly dumbed-down comedy about two Arkansas couples on vacation in Reno. After Roy (Patrick Swayze) and Darlene (Natasha Richardson) learn that their spouses (Theron, Thornton) have cheated on them with each other, Roy finds free-of-charge solace with an improbably beautiful hooker (Penelope Cruz), while Darlene discovers self-esteem at a Tony Orlando concert. Then she donates hubby’s new SUV to a monster-truck demolition rally. A fitting final false note in a movie full of them.
Genre: Comedy, Romance; Starring: Natasha Richardson, Patrick Swayze, Charlize Theron, Billy Bob Thornton; Director: Jordan Brady; Author: Brent Briscoe, Mark Fauser; Producer (person): Billy Bob Thornton; Release Date Limited: 10/25/2002
