Roger Ferris (DiCaprio) is a CIA operations officer. He is in Iraq trying to track down a terrorist called Al-Saleem. While following a lead, Ferris’s asset (who he has become good friends with) is killed during a car chase involving terrorists, rocket-propelled grenades and two missile-firing U.S. helicopters. Ferris recovers from his injuries at a U.S. facility in Qatar before he is sent to Jordan to run down some intelligence he recovered in Iraq. Meanwhile, unknown terrorists plan to follow up an offscreen series of bus bombings in Sheffield, with more attacks in Manchester but blow themselves up when the police find their cell. Later, another terrorist undertakes a cell phone-triggered bombing in an Amsterdam flower market that kills at least 75 people.

Ferris’ handler, Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe), keeps tabs on Ferris via a Sikorsky Cypher UAV. Towards the start of the movie, Hoffman speaks to his CIA superiors. He explains to them how terrorists are turning their back on technology by throwing away their phones and computers and using old methods of communicating face-to-face and with written messages. Because of this, the terrorists are very hard to track.

In Jordan, Ferris tosses the ineffectual Station Chief out of his office before he meets Hani Salaam (Mark Strong), head of the Jordanian General Intelligence Department (GID) who tells Ferris to never lie to him. Hoffman finds an Al-Saleem safehouse in Jordan and tells Ferris to conduct a surveillance operation on it. However, Hoffman organises another CIA operative Skip (Vince Colosimo) to conduct an operation without Ferris’ consent. The other agent screws the operation up and blows his cover after saying something compromising to a terrorist from the safehouse. The terrorist takes off running, intent on relaying information that the safehouse is being watched. Ferris chases him down and kills him by stabbing him, getting bitten by dogs in the process. Hani covers up the killing by passing it off as a robbery and Ferris accuses Hoffman of running “side operations”, telling Hoffman to lay off.

In the end Hoffman offers Ferris a job in his office, but Ferris declines and tells Hoffman that he quits the CIA. Hoffman prepares to leave Jordan and resigns himself to Ferris not changing his mind. At the movie’s end, Ferris seemingly decides to not contact Aisha therein refuting what Hoffman had repeated numerous times through the movie: no one is innocent. However Ferris is seen in the market buying pastries, in a box similar to that which he had taken to Aisha’s and it is left to the viewer to decide whether he leaves her to live her life or becomes involved with her once again.

Peter Klaven just got engaged to Zooey Rice. She’s ecstatic and calls her closest friends, but Peter does not seem to have anyone special he’d like to share the good news with. At Peter’s parents’ house, it comes out that Peter is actually a “girlfriend guy” and his guy friends when he was growing up “fell by the wayside.” After overhearing Zooey’s friends tell her that they are concerned Peter does not have any friends, he realizes he needs to find some male friends in order to have a best man for his wedding. Peter seeks the advice of his younger, gay brother Robbie on how to meet platonic guy friends and how to take them on a man-date.

Peter’s first attempt is to hang out with Barry, Denise’s husband, for poker night with the guys. It ends horribly when, after chugging too many beers, Peter projectile vomits all over Barry. Robbie tries to help Peter by sending him out with a guy from his gym for a soccer game. That does not last long, since the man angers fans at the game and has a very high-pitched voice. Peter’s mother tries next by sending him to dinner with a guy that just moved to L.A. Against Robbie’s advice, Peter goes to dinner with Doug, and it ends awkwardly with a deep tongue kiss. Peter tries for himself online and finds Mel, who represented himself as a young guy on his online profile, but is actually an old man.

While Peter feels bad about confronting Sydney now that the Ferrigno house is sold, he doesn’t re-invite Sydney to the wedding. Before the wedding, Zooey sees Peter upset about the loss of Sydney, so she calls and invites Sydney (who is already on his way) to the wedding. Just before the vows are to be taken, Sydney makes a dramatic entrance, they explain their platonic love for each other, and Sydney assumes the role of best man.

An anonymous flasher (Randy Gambill) exposes himself to shoppers in the Forest Ridge Mall parking lot. The head of mall security, Ronald “Ronnie” Barnhardt (Seth Rogen), makes it his mission to apprehend the offender. He is assisted by the Yuen twins (Matt and John Yuan), Charles (Jesse Plemons) and Dennis (Michael Peña) in his efforts. At home, Ronnie has a loving but dysfunctional relationship with his alcoholic mother (Celia Weston).

Ronnie’s dream girl, Brandi (Anna Faris) who works a mall make-up counter, is flashed the next day, becoming distraught over the situation. Ronnie tries to comfort her until a police officer, Detective Harrison (Ray Liotta), arrives and takes over Ronnie’s palliative role. Ronnie feels threatened by this and is upset that his boss allowed an outside person to infringe on his search for the offender.

The criminal activity at the mall continues, as a masked person is seen robbing a shoe store, causing property damage. Detective Harrison is once again called in to investigate, his efforts hindered by Ronnie’s unusual attempts to resolve the matter. In response, Harrison curses out Ronnie during a meeting with Ronnie’s superior. In defiance of the detective’s angry rant, Ronnie decides to take the steps necessary to become a real police officer.

Refusing the flasher an ambulance, Ronnie takes him to the police station, impressing and insulting the officers who had previously ridiculed him. A victorious Ronnie is then interviewed with the other security guards and Nell, back on both legs, is now his new girlfriend, and he returns back to his job as the head of mall security.
