Just before they hit the deer, they say on the phone they are on the Autobahn, but it is just a Bundesstraße, and the speed limit is one hundred kilometers (sixty-two miles) per hour, so they are travelling way over the speed limit at one hundred miles (one hundred sixty-one kilometers) per hour.

During the demonstration the banners show "Welcome to Berlin 2014 Annual Diplomatic Summit." That has nothing to do with the G8 summit, which, by the way in 2014 happened to be in Sochi, Russia. The last G8 in Germany was in 2007 in Heiligendamm far away from Berlin. See more »
Largely unfunny, and yes movie we get it, bullying is bad
Unfinished Business is a comedy starring pretty good cast that i thought would make this a pretty hilarious comedy; Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, Nick Frost. But man this was just for the most part very unfunny. There were some good moments that got me to laugh, mainly between Dave Franco and Vince Vaughn but they were still only a few and stretched over the course of the film with boring story filler in between. Tom Wilkinson i found to be not funny at all, they tried to make him the horny old guy to get some stupid jokes out of him but it really didn't work. Majority of the jokes were just predictable and unoriginal and they use the same jokes a few times throughout the film it just gets annoying. In terms of the plot, it was a mess, i had no idea what was going on most of the time, they just seemed to be going from place to place and meeting to meeting as an excuse to keep on progressing the plot. But it was boring and you don't care about who works for who and the business numbers they keep bringing up and it just drags on and on.
Oh and i almost forgot the thing that makes this entire film so unbearable at times. The movie just continuously whacks you over the head with a stupid message about bullying over and over and over again. They maybe spent like 20 minutes of this film from the beginning to the end shoving this whole 'bullying is bad' message down your throat and it was so annoying i just wanted the film to stop. So in the end it has a messy and very vague plot with only a few good funny moments in there and a bullying message that takes over the film. Unfortunately none of the main trio really stand out performance wise and don't have a whole lot of chemistry together and that also let the film down quite a bit. - 3.8/10
