Did You Know?

Trivia

Anna Kendrick is actually drunk in the drinking game scene that takes place in the cabin. This particular scene was the last thing that needed to be filmed that day, so Kendrick and Jake Johnson decided to use real alcohol instead of the prop alcohol provided. Because the movie is entirely improvised, this gave the actors more control over the scenes - in this case, Johnson's character is in charge of the game, so Johnson decided to make Kendrick drink more.

Quotes

Kate: That's the problem with heartbreak, to you it's like an atomic bomb and to the world it's just really cliche, because in the end we all have the same experience.

Crappiest film of all time
23 November 2013 | by (Auckland, NZ) – See all my reviews

This was easily the absolute worst thing I have ever seen. It seemed as though the actors were given the premise of each scene and told to improve but the actors are TERRIBLE at improve so everything seemed forced and fake and none of the characters had a personality. The only thing worse than this film is sticking forks in your eyes. All the shots were way too close up so you could hardly see anything that was happening. Anna Kendrick.. ugh. I'm just not even completely certain about what the whole point of anything even was in this film. They work at a brewery but that makes no difference to the story what so ever. Shes good at organisation for her work party but cant move house or change her t shirt it would seem. SUDDENLY They're AT A CABIN! The best thing about this film is that it will make any other film seem good just by comparison.
