Trivia

Lauren said that the blue-colored wine is made from the skin of the Blue Dart Tree Frog. It's a real animal with scientific name "Dendrobates azureus", which habitat is in central and south America. The skin of this frog contains alkaloid poison that causes paralysis, which can be lethal to humans as it could paralyze the heart muscles. It's called dart frog because the Amerindian tribes put the frog's poison on the tip of their darts and arrows. However, the level of toxicity of the blue frog's poison is considered mild. The most toxic dart frog is the golden-colored one, "Phyllobates terribilis", that has enough poison to kill 20 men or 10,000 mice. See more »

Ridley: What is wrong with Winnie the Pooh?
Claire: Oh, you want to talk to me about Winnie the Pooh? Is that what you're saying? Well, I'll tell you about Winnie the fucking Pooh. Winnie the Pooh is an obsessive-compulsive addict who will do anything to score his next fix. They say it's honey he's after, but it may as well be crack or crystal meth. He talks about it.

Smart and funny
22 April 2014 | by iain731See all my reviews

It's always interesting to see what a good writer can do when they let their characters take the gloves off. In this case, an obscure Peruvian wine removes the gauntlets and loosens the tongues of two couples on Halloween night. What comes out is not drunken ravings, but rather deep truths and petty insecurities - the things we go to great pains to obscure from even those closest to us. That one character does not imbibe in the truth serum while the other three do adds to the complexity of the premise and the potential for humor. Unformulaic and refreshingly honest, the film is riotously funny and brilliantly acted -well worth searching out!
