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 "Deed" that is shown to us in the movie is titled "Deed of Trust". A warranty deed should have been used instead. A Deed of Trust does not give title to the property to the person buying the property, it gives title to a lender in trust to secure repayment of a loan used to buy the property. See more »

My room mates watched this flick, told me it was worth a watch but nothing special.
Full disclosure: I am a huge David Wain fan, I loved Stella, I watch Wainy Days, etc.
This movie is about two city types who have a run of bad luck, end up at hippie commune. Funny stuff ensues.
Not an original concept by any means but comedic none the less. Purely hilarious cast sans Paul Rudd, I'm not a huge fan but I understand why people do.
To the guy saying "its unrealistic": Hi, I'm movies. Have you ever seen me before? Bottom Line: If you liked The State, Stella, Michael & Michael Have Issues, Children's Hospital, or the like. You will more than likely enjoy this movie.
