Goofs

When Rose Byrne is drinking a glass of wine with one of her young students (who is taking an exam), the student asks for a glass of wine jokingly, and the waitress brings it. The wine glasses move places on the table so much I got dizzy. See more »

I had high hopes for Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne & the other actors in this movie, since I enjoy The League, SNL, The Soup & Neighbors etc. I watched the entire film unfortunately it had an extremely stale story line, to the point I did not care at all to see the ending. Seemed dull enough to fast forward until the end. Character development was non-existent, Nick Kroll should never be the lead in a movie, I'm unsure if its his acting or poor script writing. The script was so predictable & over done. The acting does seem forced & unnatural, not sure why this movie was made, maybe the Duplass brothers have money to waste? If you wanna regret an hour & a half of your life watch it, if you want to laugh & be captivated don't press play.
