Trivia

The movie mocks the film "The Vow" while the director Ross Katz ends up doing "The Choice" as his follow-up movie, a Nicholas Sparks' novel based rom-com of the same genre. See more »

Goofs

When Jake and Justine take Teddy for swimming classes the first time, Miss Jenn (swimming instructor) throws a blue colored toy float towards Jake as a sarcasm for his fear of cold water. In the next scene we see that toy float between open arms of Jenn instead of being near Jake or Teddy. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jake: Hi, I'm Jake Winton. If you're receiving this video, it means that you have invested in "MINDS i". It also means that we have raised $2.5 million to start production on the sickest piece of wearable technology on the market today.

Good actors, disappointing film
10 February 2019 | by JGReviewsSee all my reviews

I really like the actors in this film and wanted to like this film, but ultimately I was a little disappointed. There were few laughs in the film and most of them were in the 2 minutes that Bobby Moynihan was on screen. It's probably worth checking out some of the actors/filmmakers' other works instead of this one.
