Since 1995 and Dumb & Dumber, the brothers Farrelly form the flagship tandem of American comedy regressive trend. After Fou d'Irène (1998), Mary at any price (2000) or L'amour extra large (2002), this time they dusted off a romantic comedy by Elaine May released in 1972.
Ben Stiller slips into the skin of Eddie, a hardened bachelor who finally falls on the woman of his dreams, Lila. Problem: after the wedding, on the honeymoon, it's a nightmare. Vulgar and victims of terrible epidermal concerns, Lila is a huge mistake. As Eddie approaches the nervous breakdown, he meets the gentle Miranda.
The crazy bride of The Women of Her Dreams is portrayed by Malin Akerman. The 29-year-old actress, seen in the teen movie Harold & Kumar's hunt for the burger and the Entourage series, was favored by star Gwyneth Paltrow.
The Women of Her Dreams was released in the United States on October 5th. His box office results did not fill the hopes of production. The film brought in only $ 14 million in revenue at the end of its first weekend in North American theaters, while Paramount Studios was hoping to reap 25 million.
Bobby and Peter Farrelly are now working on their new project which is none other than the American remake of Francis Veber's comedy La Doublure.
