In New York City, couple Joel and Molly are having dinner with their couple friends, Kyle and Karen. In the general discussion of their respective relationships and how they met, Joel and Molly, in telling their story, say that it is exactly like a corny romantic comedy. The story they end up telling not only has every romantic comedy cliché thrown in, but it is told in the style of a romantic comedy, complete with crazy characters who should be smarter to figure out a smoother path to a happy ending for Joel and Molly. But that one romantic comedy element that is the big payoff may not be reality, or perhaps it is.
He came...She came...They both came.
Did You Know?
Near the beginning of the movie, when Kyle (Bill Hader
) says how much Molly (Amy Poehler
) and Joel's (Paul Rudd
) love story is like a rom-com, Molly responds by saying that it isn't a movie, it is their real-life, and looks right at the camera, just before the scene ends. See more
When Joel is pacing outside Molly's shop, and she is trying on outfits in the back, the shop is neat and tidy, and the Kex poster on the wall is straight. When she finally comes out, in a suit of armour, the shop is trashed and the Kex poster is askew. This is explained in the bonus material deleted scenes, which shows two CSR employees trashing the shop with baseball bats. See more
