Trivia:
During shooting in the United Center for the "Shoot the Puck" scene, Kevin James actually made it into the net while practicing for the scene. The extras in the United Center erupted with "Chelsea Dagger" to commemorate his accomplishment.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: When Ronny confronts Geneva about the affair at the Blackhawks game, they miss a goal and the song "Chelsea Dagger" plays which is the goal song for the Blackhawks. In reality, when the Blackhawks score, the goal horn blows followed by song "Chelsea Dagger" by the Fratellis.See more »
Quotes:
Geneva:I have a question for the table. How long does it take before you really know someone?
Beth:I think that you are always continuing to know someone. As time changes, so do we. I say that when things are tough and you see how someone is, you get a good sense of who they are.
Ronny Valentine:Yeah, that's right.
Nick Brannen:Well, I think that you can know in the first ten seconds of seeing someone. That's how I fell in love with Geneva.
Geneva:Awww.

Bad just bad., 20 April 2011
Author: midtra52 from United States

Normally if you go to a movie and then discover that the Mexican food you ate is doing a number on your stomach you get disappointed that you might have to miss some of the movie while you destroy the bathroom at the theater. That was not the case with this movie. I sat through the first 15 minutes because I wanted to at least see what was going on. At the 10 minute mark I thought I was going to blow up, but I held it in while hoping something funny would happen. Another few minutes went by and I rook a step out to give the janitors something to cry about. When I came back I asked my friend if I missed anything and he said he was about to leave.

I kept watching and laughed maybe once, kind of. I couldn't believe Jennifer Connelly was in this movie and it was sooo bad. Not to mention Vince Vaughn being a funny guy but providing no laughs throughout this whole movie. I guess that worked out well though because after another 20 minutes I was ready to blow again. Had I laughed hard at any point during this movie I would've need a gallon of bleach and a trip to the laundromat. But this movie sure didn't deliver it. After my final trip to the bathroom I came back to find my friend had left. Many others in the theater left throughout the movie as well. I sat and watched the rest, but mostly because I wanted to hold still and hope my stomach settled down.
