Did You Know?


In the dialogue at the bar and later at the reading, Jason, Zac Efron's character, mocks the young man about to hit on Imogen Poots by saying "they will drive UP to the Hamptons". From NYC which is where all of the characters live, you typically say "drive OUT" to the Hamptons not UP. The eastern end of Long Island is east of NYC, not north of it. See more »


In the bathroom, when Mikey tells the group that he was with Vera, two different men's voices can be heard when the group express their disbelief. But only Jason moves his lips while Daniel does not. See more »


Mikey: Which one of you divas uses self-tanner?
Daniel: I do, why?
[Mikey walks out of the bathroom in nothing but a towel]

That Uncomfortable Unfunny Awkward Moment
3 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was so unsettled by this movie, I walked out before it ended, To the point I just didn't care, even though it was getting close to the end, But I was tortured enough. Identity Thief(2013) is an Oscar winner compared to this.

Trying to be Sex and the City for guys, only not clever and not funny. I will say the three main leads do have chemistry, and you instantly believe they are friends. But the jokes are pretty much thrown down are throats, not to mention dramatic moments also. Unlike The Best Man Holiday(2013) which balanced the comedy and drama perfectly, this film doesn't do it well at all. It's a lame attempt to make a film for couples who like comedies, I'll tell you this save your money and go rent He's Just Not That Into(2009) instead.

Michael B. Jordan why are you in this, you have proved to be better than this, you deserve better. Has for Zac Efron, after seeing you in this, I think your 15 minutes of fame are about up.
