When the exterior marquee sign for the Riviera is first shown close-up, all the little white lights beneath the title are working perfectly. Then, in the very next shot, when it's shown from a little further away, an entire section of marquee lights is out. See more »
There have been several reviews maligning this movie. I think it's because they may have some pre-conceived notions that this movie will be full of non-stop laughs given that Vince and Jennifer are both comedic actors. I happen to think that this movie is excellent! True, the movie has many scenes where you will burst out laughing but there are also scenes which will touch you or even make you cry. What I like about this movie is that it's very realistic on how it portrays relationships especially when it's on the brink of dissolution. Because isn't that how life and relationships really are? It isn't always rosy, there has to be a mix of gray and blue, or it would be pretty boring.
Jen and Vince did an awesome job in this movie as well as all the supporting casts. My only comment is on the script which may be a bit lacking in character development. Nonetheless the movie is a must see.
I urge you to watch this movie with an open mind and you might take away a lesson or two after you finish viewing it.
