In this raw and raunchy comedy, straight-laced Marcus and Emily are befriended by wild, thrill-seeking partiers Ron and Kyla at a resort in Mexico. Living in the moment, the usually level-headed couple lets loose to enjoy a week of uninhibited fun and debauchery with their new 'vacation friends'. Months are their walk on the wild side, Marcus and Emily are horrified when Ron and Kyla show up uninvited at their wedding, creating chaos and proving that what happens on vacation doesn't necessarily stay on vacation.

5:26 Wow, there’s nothing wrong with a Best Western but oof, bit of a step down.
10:07 If he’s a park ranger, he knows Yogi, right?
19:45 Spiritually vs governmentally.
27:45 Jumping off high cliffs is so scary. Unknown rocks could be below!

Thoughts

What’s most annoying about this film is we had deliberately waited to watch it having viewed John Cena too recently as Peacemaker. Not that it had particularly heightened the expectations, but what a waste of time. The bit where they were on vacation was bolshy but kinda fun, but the minute they jumped off the cliff, it got so dull… and I could absolutely see where it was going. If she didn’t turn up later, pregnant, and ruin the wedding, I would eat my hat.
