In an interview with Creative Screenwriting magazine, the screenwriters, David Guion and Michael Handelman, virtually disowned the film. Guion said "That movie was a bit of a cautionary story for screenwriters in terms of that it was a movie that struggled a little bit and didn't test well initially, and the financiers panicked and said, 'We better show a lot of people getting hit in the balls' It was unfortunate because the director, Jesse Peretz, is great and very talented, but the movie was ultimately taken out of his hands."

I think the main actors in this flick (Zach Braff, Amanda Peet, and the totally wasted Jason Bateman) were the only thing that was even somewhat decent about this terrible attempt of comedy. I have seen better episodes of "Arrested Development" than this. If you are looking for a couple chuckles and plan on forgetting it immediately, this is right up your alley. If want to see an actual funny comedy, there are many others that are worth while. Bateman is pretty good, but you can be the best in the biz, but with a crummy script, no one can save it. A lot of the little bit parts are somewhat amusing, but hardly worth watching.
