Raz Burlam (Kal Penn) is a control freak, obsessive compulsive man child married to beautiful Manhattan photographer Jane (Reese Witherspoon).

Brewster Baxter (John C. Reilly) is a video-game designer slacker stay at home husband to beautiful accountnt Laura (Jennifer Aniston).

Raz comes to suspect that Jane that is having an affair with a model Salnetti Hobson (James Franco) after catching the two at dinner and inadvertantly crashing his car.

He consults with Brewster in concerns to the dinner he saw Jane on with model Salnetti and the two devise a stake-out which inevitably results in them seeing Laura sneaking into her skeezy co-worker Lawrence Peters (Colin Farrell) house.

The two then stupidly conclude that their wives must be having affairs and call upon their girl shy, mature respectable lawyor friend Toby (Ryan Reynolds) and nerdy desperate for adventure friend Mort (Jon Heder).

Things become complicated as Brewster's criminal brother Jones (Danny McBride) becomes involved and a crazy hithchiker by the name Starfish (Isla Fisher) come into the picture.
