Reuben Feffer thinks he's found the love of his life but on his honeymoon he discovers her cheating on him with a scuba instructor. Reuben travels back home to get his life on track. On a night out with best pal, Sandy Lyle, Reuben discovers an old school friend, Polly Prince. Reuben feels a connection straight away, and tries constantly to get her to like him. But it's not going to be easy for Reuben, especially when he spends his days calculating risks, and when someone unexpected turns up.

Did You Know?


Ben Stiller mentioned while on a talk show promoting the film that the ferret bit him a couple of times during production, including one time latching onto his chin.


When Reuben and Sandy are at the pizza place, Reuben rubs the straw paper into a ball. In the next shot, he's wrapping it around his finger.

Reuben Feffer:
I, Reuben, take you, Lisa… I, Reuben, take YOU, Lisa, to be my lawfully wedded wife. I do. I do.

User Review

The other Ben & Jen


ALONG CAME POLLY (2004) *** Ben Stiller, Jennifer Aniston, Philip
Seymour Hoffman, Debra Messing, Bryan Brown, Hank Azaria, Michele Lee,
Bob Dishy, Alec Baldwin, Missi Pyle. Stiller gives another of his
patented hapless schmuck romantics turns as newlywed risk management
assessor whose marriage is on the rocks when his wife (Messing) has an
affair on their honeymoon, sending him back to NYC to assess his life
and runs into former junior high friend Aniston who knocks him for a
loop despite her flaky demeanor. Frequently funny and evenly paced by
writer and first-time director John Hamburg the laughs come often and
no thanks to Hoffman as Stiller's sloven has-been actor buddy and
Baldwin as his vulgar boss. Despite the toilet humor (surprisingly in
somewhat good taste if you can call it that) the film does have a heart
and Stiller and Aniston make for a cute couple.
