The Old 97's are performing their song 'Time Bomb' while Brooke is waiting for Gary at the concert. The Old 97's also played the same song during the opening credits of another Vince Vaughn movie, Clay Pigeons (1998). See more »
When the exterior marquee sign for the Riviera is first shown close-up, all the little white lights beneath the title are working perfectly. Then, in the very next shot, when it's shown from a little further away, an entire section of marquee lights is out. See more »
My husband and I went to see this film on its opening night and weren't surprised to see a full theatre.
The movie has its hilarious moments which are interspersed with plenty of uncomfortable, tense arguments as these 2 people who love one another try to one-up each other in the payback mode for the pain in their relationship.
My husband thought it dragged from the middle on a little, although I didn't.
We both left thinking the movie was really funny in some parts, pretty sad and even tragic in others. Overall, we thought the acting was solid & believable and though the ending wasn't expected, it was real and even hopeful.
We both said it was worth seeing, and if you're looking for a fairly real-life view of the life of a struggling relationship, you'll be glad you saw this film.
I left the theatre feeling a little empty, but glad that in real life, these two are together!! Enjoy!
