After Carell's character lands in the water, after the Audi/Taxi chase under FDR highway, we see the South Street Seaport lights in the background, far to the south. The distance of those lights -- along with the design of the river walk barriers -- indicate he probably was swimming near the Brooklyn Bridge or Manhattan Bridge.
In the following scene, however, he and Fey's characters are shown on the #1 subway train, which can only be caught FAR AWAY from this location. If they'd first taken a different train in order to transfer to the #1, they must have done so in total silence. See more »
Phil (Steve Carell) and Claire Foster (Tina Fey) are afraid that their marriage is growing stale upon hearing that their friends are getting a divorce. When they're at a hip restaurant in the city, they steal the reservation of the Tripplehorns. It turns out that a couple of corrupt cops are looking for the Tripplehorns and now they think the Fosters are them.
This is way too serious. The situations are way too dangerous. It's hard to laugh at this at times. The movie's tone is all over the place. Sometimes, the leads get to play with a funny Mila Kunis and James Franco pairing. Then they have a outrageous shootout with the scary corrupt cops (Jimmi Simpson, Common). I love Carell and Fey. They are fun together. But they don't have much of a chance when things turn dangerous. At least they seem to have fun in the outtakes.
