At the end of the movie, just before the credits, Meghan and Gordon are walking east on Sunset Blvd across the 101 towards Home Depot. After they kiss and the camera goes to an overhead shot and pans out, they are now walking west on Sunset, across the same bridge, and are walking towards a Denny's. The street sign pointing to 101 North also changes to 101 South from one shot to another. See more »

In Los Angeles, the journalist Meghan Miles (Elizabeth Banks) is disputing the anchor position of a TV network with another candidate. Megan is a calm woman from Texas that has just broken with her boyfriend. Her friends Rose (Gillian Jacobs) and Denise (Sarah Wright) come to her house to celebrate her new job, but she learns that the other candidate has won the position. However her friends convince her to go to a night-club to drink to forget the deception and she wears a sexy yellow dress. She gets drunk and a stranger called Gordon (James Marsden) offers to drive her home, but she prefers to go to his apartment and they have one night stand. When she wakes up, she finds a message in her cellular from a friend telling that she had been selected for the anchor position and her friend advises her to rest since her audition will be on the next day. Meghan leaves Gordon's apartment and finds that her car has been towed away with her purse. Further, the door of the building is locked and she does not know the number of the apartment where Gordon lives. So she decides to take a cab to retrieve her car, but the driver is a foreigner and misunderstands the tow place and she ends alone without money in the red zone downtown LA. Meghan sees a police car but the officers are douchebag and believe she is a prostitute. Meghan stumbles with drug dealers that try to help her but she only gets in trouble during the long night.
"Walk of Shame" is one of the funniest comedies recently released. The gorgeous and sexy Elizabeth Banks is a great comedian and she is fantastic in the role of a woman that only wants to take her car back. The story recalls the storyline of "After Hours" and is a great entertainment for a Friday evening after working for one week. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "A Minha Casa Caiu" ("My House Felt Down" – literally, but meaning "my life is destroyed")
