During the scene at Elysium where everyone is sitting around the 'truth circle' and George is given a bowl of Ayahuasca tea to drink, he smells it and passes it to Linda saying that the tea "smells like Willie Nelson's braids". Willie Nelson was the name of Paul Rudd's character's pet dog in the movie Our Idiot Brother (2011) which, incidentally besides Paul Rudd also starred Kathryn Hahn. See more »
The people at Elysium say that they don't clap because it's "too aggressive". But after they help George and Linda set their car upright, everyone claps. See more »

I thought this movie was great! Featuring a large portion of the cast from the old sketch comedy show 'The State', how could it be bad? Directed by David Wain and written by David Wain and Ken Marino, this movie strays from the stale Hollywood comedy formula in a successful attempt at creating refreshingly original, yet hilarious movie. Completely worth a watch...or maybe two so that you can catch the stuff you missed the first time from laughing so hard. I especially enjoyed the short 'Stella' bits featuring David Wain, Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black. Over all this movie is great for those like me who tire from watching cliché Hollywood comedies and need something new and unique.
