When Isabella (Imogen Poots) gives Arnold (Owen Wilson) a squirrel toy as a gift for one night, the squirrel toy is in reference to the film's previous considered title, "Squirrels to the Nuts". See more »
When we first see Seth and Arnold get off the elevator at the Barclay, they go to their rooms in opposite directions. The next time we see the rooms they are across the hall from each other. See more »
Squirrels to the nuts! Oh, are you okay? I cannot believe I'm running into you Derek!
No, I'm not going to be quiet! It's Margie, remember? From Chicago? I've looked everywhere for you! You don't understand, you've changed my life! I went to fashion school, and I'm the executive buyer here.
Besides that, you gave me the single best night I ever had in bed and out. And it's all because of you and the squirrels and the nuts!

Peter Bogdanovich's 'She's Funny That Way' is an entertaining, enjoyable film, thats amongst the best Screwball comedies in recent times. And the terrific ensemble, deliver excellently!
'She's Funny That Way' Synopsis: On the set of a playwright's new project, a love triangle forms between his wife, her ex-lover, and the call girl-turned-actress cast in the production.
'She's Funny That Way' is an absurd story, centered around a hooker (Imogen Poots). The series of events she witnesses in this eccentric comedy, is often hilarious. I was in splits when all of its characters came under one roof...its impossible not to laugh at their bizarre personalities.
Louise Stratten & Bogdanovich's Screenplay hits the right notes. The only glitch comes in the middle of the way, when the pace dips for a bit, as the Writing loosens. However, things come back on track & get funnier as this story comes to an end. Bogdanovich's Direction (Though Very Woody Allen) is skilled. The Legendary Storyteller has handled all the comedic portions, with flourish. Cinematography & Editing are superb. Art Design is perfect.
'She's Funny That Way' would've been a lesser joyride, if the casting would've been wrong. But, luckily here, everyone is cast right-on! Imogen Poots delivers a knockout performance as the protagonist, enacting the hooker under pressure, to perfection. Owen Wilson is effortlessly convincing, oozing naturalness throughout. Kathryn Hahn is a comedic force. What a performance! Rhys Ifans is as sleazy as it can get, while Will Forte has his moments. Jennifer Aniston is absolutely terrific as the irritated psychiatrist. Austin Pendleton & George Morfogen are in fine form, as well.
On the whole, 'She's Funny That Way' gets most of it right. Watch It!
