In all of Mark Wahlberg's scenes, he is shirtless. His scenes were carefully filmed at specific angles to avoid showing a tattoo of Bob Marley that he has on his left shoulder. See more »
At the end of the chase scene (right before the Audi and the cab are separated by the Suburban), the connected cars take a right around a corner. Watch closely - the rear wheels of the cab turn, making the stunt possible. See more »
I thought everything was fine, really. But you know what? We are stuck in these roles together and we can't break out of them, you know? It's like that Asian dude in "Sixteen Candles", Long Dik Dog.
Long Duk Dong.
Long Duk Dong. That dude!

Desperate attempt to be funny scrambling for a plot
A good idea is set up where married couple stuck in routine learn of a friend's impending divorce and decide to try something different - a trip to the city for dinner. Unfortunately, after we get this 10 minutes of watchable, promising footage behind us a schizophrenic plot turn changes the entire character of the movie. It is obvious the original idea could not be sustained long enough and so it lapses into a bizarre crime caper that leaves the viewer wondering what happened. The writers do not even do us the courtesy of a gentle transition and make it worse by trying to make it up with desperate throw-backs to the original premise here and there that are just not believable. Overall, it is a disjointed, tiresome tirade that never quite made the transition from idea to movie. It is painful to watch, and a real pity, because Tina Fey has a lot of potential as an actress just breaking in from TV and embarrasses herself with this cheap attempt at entertainment.
