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.

Fun Tango
4 June 2007 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

What you get from 'Three To Tango' is a feel-good (but sort of deja-vu) comedy. It has its own charm, own humour (though very American). Santostefano's direction helps the movie move on a steady track. Matthew Perry's Oscar isn't very different from Chandler Bing, yet he manages to stay funny as hell and never get on our nerves. Neve Campbell's Amy is vivacious, charming, sexy and funny. Dylan McDermott does alright as the arrogant boss. Oliver Platt is decent (although he does go overboard at times). Unlike other more recent American comedies, 'Three To Tango' has a more classy appeal. The background score is very likable. The film is set in the busy city which is beautifully shot. Though it does have its share of toilet humour and over-the-top comedy, I can safely say it's one of the better American comedies, fun enough to watch on a rainy day accompanied by a great background score.
