Jason Sudeikis stated in an interview that they wanted to put a gag in the film, where Jamie Foxx's character says to Nick, Kurt, and Dale, "You crackers got to go. I have three other crackers coming in," and as the trio get up to leave, the three characters from The Hangover movies would come in and sit at the booth. They finally decided against it, because it would take the audience out of the movie. Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms (Alan and Stu from The Hangover film franchise) later heard about this, and thought the idea was hilarious.
