As George and Linda enter Atlanta for the first time, the cars are driving on the wrong side of the road. Traffic is on the left side. The film playback has been flipped mirror image wise. See more »
A lot of magical things have happened since you walked through those doors.
My menstrual cycle started back up again. And I don't even have a uterus. I mean I have it... it's in a jar. It's actually in the room that you're staying in.

What could have been a 5 or 6 star comedy film, is made a 10 star film by Paul Rudd's (improvised?) mirror scene. When I watched that part, I thought "What great directing!" But then, when I read on IMDb that Rudd improvised that scene, I thought "What a great comic acting genius he is". So although there are a few hokey scenes (the psychedelic trip, the 2 cars in the pond) in all, the film is entertaining at least, and hilarious at best, especially due to Rudd's great improvisation. With something this light, it's best not to over-analyze its elements. (and by the way, I thought that Jennifer Anniston was very good, despite other reviewers comments). So rather than picking it apart, as though it were up for an academy award, just watch, laugh and enjoy!!
