David: Emma... Will you marry me?
Emma: Won't you wait and see if I get my figure back?
David: If you stay flabby, I promise I'll get flabby as well.
Emma: I wonder if that's the first time anyone's used the word "flabby" in a marriage proposal.

A man discovers he is the biological father of over 500 children
29 June 2014 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I am dumbfounded at the critics' lackluster to bad reviews of this great movie, which is funny and poignant, as well as thought provoking. Vince Vaughn gives a wonderful performance, and is evolving, in my opinion, into his generation's Bill Murray, a very funny comic actor with a gift for the dramatic. Don't let the odd premise or the off the mark reviews keep you from watching this touching film. Good supporting performances from Chris Pratt and Andrzej Blumenfeld round things out. No spoiler here, but a scene late in the film between Vince's character and his father is so understated, yet hilarious, that I had to pause it several times until I stopped laughing. What I really loved about this film was how the humor came out of truthful situations even though the main premise of the film is preposterous.
