A third of the film's $50 million budget went on Cameron Diaz's salary (the film only made $68 million). See more »

The closing credits show a montage of scenes, outtakes and the 5 main cast members are sitting on a couch talking directly to the audience. After the credits roll, the cast tells the audience that the movie is over, and to go home. See more »
I'm a lover of films, especially one that can make me laugh. I try not to be too harsh with my opinions, in that I am a documentary maker myself, but I was shocked to read through the user comments for this movie, and find many of them praising this poor excuse for entertainment. I regrettably sat through this slow, simple, forced comedy, never once so much as cracking a smile. The plot was nonexistent (something to be expected and excused in this genre), but in a comedy, there is typically...comedy. Every gag seemed to be derived from a funny inside joke, like the old food in the car. Nothing is worse than going to a movie and consistently getting that "guess you had to be there" feeling. My only pity of this movie was for the fantastic Jason Bateman, who must have been slipped a mickey to have signed onto this project. Now that the movie has been out of theaters, I don't need to say "don't waste your money"...I can simply say don't waste your time.
