During dinner, Charlie's fiancé makes some disparaging remarks about documentaries. Ellie mentions a documentary about monkeys that is filmed by monkeys. It ends after ten seconds, when the camera is broken. At the end of the film credits for "Lucky Them", the monkey documentary is shown in full. See more »
When Ellie and Charlie park the motor-home to see the guy with information on where Matthew is, it is pulled off perpendicular to the road. When they are shown getting out, the motor-home is parallel to the road. See more »
Look on the bright side, at least you didn't give a dead animal to somebody on their wedding day.

The DVD was finally released so I had a chance to see the movie. I wanted to see it primarily because of the superb cast and I wasn't disappointed by a single one of them. But I do wonder how they got the 8 figure salary Johnny Depp to play a bit role. The story didn't move me partly because the characters weren't fleshed out. One sentence or two was all the viewer was given in the way of background. Tom Hayden's character for instance is wealthy but is he really the buffoon who would marry a hooker who is secretly married and blatantly seeking to make Hayden's character become more materialistic? Johnny Depp's character is described as a "shit." Why? We're never told. It's really a tribute to the cast that this movie exists and damn near works.
