The synopsis: “Everyone hates Ward’s wife and wants her dead, Ward most of all. But when his friends’ murderous fantasies turn into an (accidental) reality, they have to deal with a whole new set of problems — like how to dispose of the body and still make their 3 p.m. tee time.”

The film co-stars Donald Faison, Patrick Wilson, James Carpinello, Amy AckerNicollette Sheridan, Marika Dominczyk, Dagmara Dominczyk, and Greg Grunberg.
