The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

In the scene where the main characters are revealing their real names to one another, David asks if Rose's real name (Sarah) is spelled with an 'h'. This seems to be a direct reference to the same query which was made to 'Elizabeth Shue''s character in Leaving Las Vegas (1995) by Nicolas Cage's character. (Shue's response was that her name is spelled with an 'e': "Sera".)
When David (Jason Sudeikis) is in Brad's (Ed Helms) office in the beginning of the movie, David mentions seeing Dexter. Later in the movie, David meets One-Eye (Matthew Willig). Willig played Little Chino on the second season of Dexter.
