The book that Harmony takes off the shelf at the party is entitled You Wouldn't Want to Live There by Joe Chester, a fictional detective novelist. When she opens the book to read it, the text at the top of the pages clearly states that the novel is Maureen Child's The Man Beneath the Uniform, a 2004 Silhouette romance novel. See more »
Don't worry, I saw Lord of the Rings. I'm not going to end this 17 times.

At the end of the movie, Val Kilmer says not to leave; to stay and watch the credits; and if you're wondering who the Best Boy is, he's someone's nephew. (The actual Best Boy credit is Jack Bauer.) See more »
Great movie with tons of funny scenes. I was rolling in my seat with laughter!
I saw a special screening of the movie yesterday and I thought it was going to be so boring, but I was entirely wrong! It was very funny and well written. It was a refreshing take on screenplays and acting and its great to see Robert Downey Jr. back again. Val Kilmer's role as Gay Perry was also spectacular. Michelle Monaghan looks like she can be Liv Tyler's little sister but with more substance (sorry Liv Tyler fans) I loved the sarcasm and humorous one-liners used throughout the movie. The constant reference to real life actors and movies gave it an almost "real life" feel. I recommend this movie for a good laugh and great narration by Downey, Jr.
