Trivia

When the film was originally scheduled to start filming in middle October 2010 for two weeks, Rachel Weisz was set to play Emily Blunt's sister, so the actress could complete her part and start filming The Deep Blue Sea (2011) in November. However, filming of Lynn Shelton's movie was postponed, making Weisz pull out due to schedule conflicts with The Deep Blue Sea. Rosemarie DeWitt replaced her. See more »

A journey I very much enjoyed, with excellent performances
17 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A dialogue heavy film, which I am often very fond of and this is no exception. Basically a three- hander with a trio of sublime and believable performances from Mark Duplass, the always excellent Emily Blunt and the seriously under rated and forever sister (United States of Tara, Rachel's Getting Married) Rosemarie DeWitt. They simply inhabit these characters.

A film told with great honesty and natural flair, with a lot of the dialogue being apparently improvised, I was entertained and intrigued from beginning to end. I laughed out loud on a number of occasions at the spoken wit and the extreme awkwardness of some of the scenes. These are all flawed people, but they are all relatable and likable.

It does fall into a little bit of predictability and cliché as it moves on through the story and I surprisingly had no issue with one aspect that angers many a gay woman, as to me it made sense for the character.

It was a journey I very much enjoyed and it felt quite different from your average rom-com.
