!Tropes for the film:
* TheFinickyOne: Jason, who actually gives his friends a [=PowerPoint=] presentation to discuss the possibility of divorcing his wife.
* GoingCommando: Played for laughs when the characters are told to take off their outer clothing as a therapy exercise and one character admits he isn't wearing any underwear and unsuccessfully tries to refuse.
* ImmediateSelfContradiction: The movie has this quote:\\
--> '''Dave''': What we need to do now is get focused and stop pointing fingers. ''[points at Joey]'' You're a problem. You're a real, real problem.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Features an extreme version of the trope, with the overweight Shane (Love) and his hot twenty-year old floozy of a girl, played by Kali Hawk (he wasn't even rich - but he acts like he has money, buying her a motorcycle). Lesser examples include the pudgy, slobby, older Jon Favreau and Vaughn being hooked up with the gorgeous Kristin Davis and Malin Akerman, respectively. Only one couple of the four could be described as a pair of attractive people- Bell and Bateman.
