Because there was no script and the making of the film was so up in the air, the actors would show up on set often not knowing what they would be filming that day. Ron Livingston arrived in Chicago (where the movie was filmed) one day before he was scheduled to work, but then received a call telling him that filming was ahead of schedule so he would be working that day and that he would be filming "the break up scene". Livingston knew that his character had a relationship with Olivia Wilde's character and to a certain extent with Anna Kendrick's too, so when he arrived on set, he had to ask the director which one of the two he was breaking up with and why.

This movie is a lesson to all the movie making people about how relationship works in real life!
When I was watching, I was expecting and worried at the same time that this movie would wind up the same way as the 1000 movies I have already seen about courtship and the drama and weak constructions of a relationship that follows that in a movie.
But this movie doesn't have any of the routine non-sense that other movies have and the ending could not have been better.
I know all the negative reviews preceding this, but they have not seen all the boring movies which always have the same ending. I 'm really happy that this movie doesn't end like that.
The director has done a great job in making the movie as lively as possible. In this movie, I felt like the actors were was not even acting, It felt so real rather than the cliché crap we see on other movies.
