Did You Know?


Hannah's red truck broke down frequently and for at least one scene had to be pushed down the street by crew members just out of frame. See more »


The portable 4-track machine does not have built-in speakers and would have needed to be hooked up to the sound system. As it was stored in a canvas bag and didn't have any audio cables connected, it should not have been able to produce any sound. See more »

User Reviews

A movie that I did like but was almost a little too cookie cutter like to be considered original.
11 March 2016 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"You're the one obsessed with death. My Hunter was obsessed with life." Hannah (Hall) is trying to cope with the death of her husband, and popular singer. She spends her life living in the past and trying everything to keep his memory alive. When Andrew (Sudeikis) shows up wanting to write a book about him he is met with resistance from Hannah. Little by little the more they talk they more they realize they both have something that will help the other one. This is a very good movie that is worth watching, but it also a tad bit generic and cookie cutter like. Most romantic comedies are though so going in I expected that. Sudeikis is great and funny as always, even though this is more serious than we are used to from him. In terms of romantic movies this is one that men will like, maybe more than women. Overall, a movie that I did like but was almost a little too cookie cutter like to be considered original. I give this a B-.
