(May 2008) Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel walked off the set due to SAG rules, after producers failed to show they had enough money to pay its cast. The SAG announced it would keep all cast members from the movie until the production company shows there is enough money set aside in a union-mandated account. Furthermore, union leaders at the International Alliance of Theatrical + Stage Employees (Iatse) called for staff-members to boycott the movie's production and not show up to work when they learned below-the-line crew members were not being paid.

Probably one of the worst movies i've ever seen. I don't see the point having such a casting to release that crap.
You'll notice, this movie follows an idiotic chain reaction based on an event and it's consequences. Consequences that could clearly not happen. OK OK i got it it's a satire but if it's designed to make people laugh or reach a king of irony, then it's not even good absurd humour but just cheap one.
I'm no USA Citizen and not English native speaker so i'm not directly concerned nor educated about congress and related subjects. Still this movie's meaning has been completely messed.
