Trivia

Just before they hit the deer, they say on the phone they are on the Autobahn, but it is just a Bundesstraße and the speed limit is 100 km/h, so they are traveling way over the speed limit with 100mph. See more »

Goofs

Although "Flügelschlagen" is an actual German word it does not make any sense the way it is used throughout the movie. It's nonsense and becomes a running gag after that. Translated back to English it means "flapping wings", i.e. what birds do to fly. Only at the end of the movie, where Dan tries to explain it to his wife, it fits pretty well into the context of his words of wisdom. See more »

Not the type of comedy that leaves you on your back laughing but it was really enjoyable and purposeful and i believe the latter one really matters
31 May 2015 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

The movie started off a bit seriously and not much of funny bits but it kept on growing to be really hilarious in some scenes, Generally the movie hits so many nerves like how to be courageous enough and initiative to start your business if you know you're good enough to do so, but also faces the bullying and it is what makes the movie more purposeful and own a valid strong point of view. Maybe it's not the type of comedy it would leave me on my back laughing but again the did something good adding the bullying thingy to the plot so it would make it more attractive.

The screenplay was thorough,, the script was "in my opinion" well written, Steve Conrad took this project all by himself and he made it look really genuine ,, yes this is no where near his previous movies like "the weather man", "the promotion" or god knows "The Pursuit of Happiness" but it still felt so nice to watch.

As for the cast, Vince Vaughn is genius we all know that, Bravo,, but Dave Franco .. come on.. his performance here is applaudable .. he is really heading to be a really renowned actor ... There were more than a handful of really funny hardly laughable scenes for him,, When they're all in the spa and he start saying "boobies ... boobies" and there was another one when they were in the bathroom in the gay bar when he fell down and said "the penis touched my face" and then the slapping with the Japanese guys.. gosh his face expression is priceless :D Tom Wilkinson was fine same goes for most of the characters.

Again the comedy was just okay at the beginning but it really peaked to an exciting level in the hardcore party they were having :D

Overall, i believe any movie has a purpose deserve a chance on the big screen and bullying is a huge matter and it was nice they shone a bit of light on it ,, and the comedy was fresh .. not a Wowzer but still nice and fresh so i found it enjoyable. So it pass 5/10 for the comedy and over 6 for the story ;)
