While they aren't credited, you can find Chantry and Wallace's last names in the email "Re: just pure fat" that Chantry writes. They are Alton and Hastings respectively. See more »
Right at the start Wallace and Chantry are toasting with two bottles of beer. When they toast both bottles have their caps on. Chantry walks away and we see Wallace drinking form his (now cap-less) bottle) See more »
I thought a lot about something you said. About how when you realize how quickly everything can fall apart it makes you never want to give up anything good ever again. Whatever this is between us, it is good. It is so good. It is actually the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I don't want it to be over.
I don't want it to be over either. I kind of wish we could invent a time machine or something.
If we ever invent time travel, I would go back to the night we met.

Original/TIFF cut is appx 101 minutes, US cut is appx 98 minutes, and TIFF cut (PAL DVD) is appx 97 minutes (obviously due to PAL speedup differences).
Comparing Australian PAL DVD (original/TIFF cut) to US Bluray (US cut), changes begin from AU version at appx 65:00, equivalent to US version at appx 65:13 :

"New US ending" scene: US @ 87:05-90:40 --> not on AU (found as an extra on the retail disc). Scene is out of narrative order when compared to animated end credits, and should have been placed after animated credits.
Animated end credits are also somewhat different, and run at different speeds (outside PAL speedup): AU @ 90:00-94:37 --> US @ 90:40-93:19
it clearly appears that Daniel Radcliffe has completely got out of the harry potter's net so easy , i reckon it was only a year ago when he was just recognized as Harry, he's so freaking talented i'v seen him in Horn ,, gosh ... his reactions when he's irritated in the scene is priceless .. anyhow , the movie is great with new idea in romance, the comedy is fair but still when the romance presented it heightened the whole movie to a deeper level. the plot goes complicated more and more then things just get easy to be predicted until the end which is nice if i might say. casting Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan and Adam Driver was prosperous, changing the rhythm of the scenes from funny to sad to funny to awkward to funny to romantic .. and so on was amazing directing and amazing writing . Hope to see more of these movies with a bit more comedy tho ;) especially for Mr.Radcliffe .
