In the beginning, Sam is seen typing on a "MacBook Pro" which is referencing when Justin Long portrayed a 'Mac' in the long running apple ad campaign. See more »
Right in the beginning you can clearly see Sam typing the letter "a" at least two times, but there is only one in "It was winter in Brooklyn" See more »
There were as many women in this band as there were instruments. That's the...
This was an all male a capella group.
Oh my god.
It's a... it was a man band, so get it... get it straight.

First - watch this flick for Peter Dinklage as Gerard - he is a perfect bitchy hoot! His character adds so much sparkle to this run of the mill story!
It's easy to follow - boy tries to mold himself into something he is not only to get the attention of the girl he so wants to date! The story incorporates modern social media and brings to the surface that everything someone writes about themselves is not necessarily interpreted correctly by the reader. And in doing that Sam makes a fool of himself!
You can't go wrong with this movie - lots of chuckles and a few laughs - with a feel good ending!
