When George is standing in line getting coffee at the beginning of the film, the sign behind him reads "New York Office Building (actually in Atlanta)", a site gag obviously referring to the fact that the film was wholly shot in and around Atlanta. See more »

Although this always play out in the eye of the beholder. I could imagine that some people could not relate or find anything funny in this, but I also read it in another guys review here. Just because this is R-rated, doesn't mean you're going to see a lot of the two main actresses (you will see a "bit" from one of the male leads though, even if it's not really his bit).
I on the other hand as you can tell by my rating did really like it. I know the story has more than its fair share of flaws, but it's a lot of fun to watch. If you can laugh at the jokes at hand that is of course. Paul Rudd is playing his usual sch-tick, but his "brother" is the real revelation. He's really funny and awkward! The morality of the whole thing is one dimensional, but you can overlook that, if you can laugh about the movie.
