Trivia

Even though Google didn't pay to be in the movie, the company was allowed control over how their products were to be depicted. For example, the film makers wanted a scene where the self-driving car crashes, but Google wanted the scene removed because the product hasn't launched yet. See more »

Goofs

In his first class with Dana, Nick suggests that "the default editor in Ubuntu should be changed from vi to emacs". The default editor in Ubuntu is, and was at the time of release of the film, Nano, not vi. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Nick Campbell: What the shit is this? Why is this on the get psyched mix?
Billy McMahon: Because I gotta throw you a curve-ball every now and again, or you get bored, and the mix doesn't have its intended effect.
Nick Campbell: No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.
Billy McMahon: Oh, really? I defy you to crush this chorus and not get psyched.
Nick Campbell: Not gonna happen.
Billy McMahon: Don't ya think?

Wedding Crasher Sequel?
6 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was great from beginning to end. I laughed harder than I have in any recent comedy I've seen in the theater. I saw an advanced screening in Chicago a couple weeks ago and the entire audience was cracking up the entire time. Even the romantic scenes are funny in this movie, and thats kind of rare.

Also I'm sick of people giving it negative reviews just because it's at Google, or it's a Google commercial. As if Google is really hungry for people to come do their internships. Obviously they're getting the best minds in the whole world to come there already. I'm sure everybody knows what the heck Google is.

Go see it, it's worth the price of admission. Vaughn and Wilson are great together...feels like a Wedding Crashers sequel of sorts with the way the two characters interact with each other...and of course a perfect cameo early on was hilarious.
