2 StarsRon Howard’s first foray into the ‘comedy’ genera since 1989’s ‘Parenthood’ is a mixed bag. Tonal shifts from slapstick to black comedy keep this often funny and very watch-able film from being a home-run. Vince Vaughn is appealing in a relaxed performance as the man burdened with the knowledge of his best friend’s wife’s ongoing affair. What’s a guy to do? Does he tell his buddy (Kevin James, in a fairly thankless role) and destroy his life during the biggest moment of their professional careers?
