The taxi cab Amy and Oscar take after leaving the restaurant (where they ate the tuna melt) changes from a newer model car they pulled over (and whose handle they broke), to an older boxier model in the cut scene with them driving away in the rain, then back to the same newer model they pulled over in the first place.

I'm not gay. I just have to pretend to be gay for work.

This movie has a chance to be cliched but usually avoids it deftly. It's not perfect nor full of belly laughs but pleasant enough. I haven't seen much of Matthew Perry's work, not being a "Friends" fan, but I was very impressed by his acting here, his expressions and comedic timing. Neve Campbell is adorable, the kind of spunky kooky girl you wish existed in real life - one of her better roles. If you're a fan of Matthew or Neve, you'll love the movie. Supporting cast does fine, direction, photography, music, all in place unobtrusively. A good director is one who you don't know is there. Damon Santostefano emerges from successful tv shows to do a fine job. (Clueless, The District, Honey I Shrunk The Kids).
