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 »
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 »
This is historic. The revolution has begun - all because this courageous woman saw an unjust world and waved her boobies at it.

Yes, there were a couple good laughs to be had during this movie. But for the most part, it was just weird. Even some of the funny scenes went on too long and got to be awkward. The "story" (if you can call it that) was predictable. The jokes were not, because they were so outlandish that they came across as gimmicky.
Not that a movie like this requires great acting skills, but the roles played by Rudd, Aniston and Watkins are at least believable. But the credibility stops there. Most of the other characters are over-acted, and poorly-developed.
And one of my biggest pet peeves: scenes from the trailer were NOT in the film. THIS DRIVES ME MAD! It's like a restaurant advertising a lunch special that they don't have in stock.
Bottom line: save your movie, and save your time.
