Goofs

When Travis has dinner at Gabby's house, he selects an LP, looking at both sides of the cover before taking out the disc and placing it on a phonograph. The song that plays is "Terrible Love" by The National. Although that album was released on vinyl, and the first track was "Terrible Love," the sleeve of that album looks nothing like the sleeve seen in the movie, and the vinyl disc should either have been purple or black with a purple label (the album title is "High Violet"), neither of which is shown in the film. The album used for filming actually looks like something released in the 50s or 60s, which is consistent with what Travis is saying about the elderly couple who recently moved out of that house (which Gabby is leasing). Also, the "High Violet" vinyl release was a 2-disc set, not a single album. Also, also, assuming the film begins "present day" (early 2016), the subsequent flashback took the story back "7 years earlier" which would make it early summer of 2009 when Gabby invites Travis over for dinner. "High Violet" wasn't released until May of 2010. See more »

Perfect cozy night with wife Chick Flick
19 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

I usually don't write reviews, but this movie was fantastic. The movie pulled at your heart throughout the entire movie. Its funny, sexy, and sad with a case of real life thrown in for good measure. The characters are fantastic, and the setting on the coast if beautiful. Did you ever have that real love in your live, and you could feel it slipping away, well this is the movie for you. What did you do to get it back, or to try and get it back? Did you walk away and say it wasn't meant to be, or did you fight for it? Did you give it your all? Well, take a watch of this one, and see what happens. You will be glad you went for a spin. Be prepared for a roller coaster for ups and downs on the emotional scale. In the end, can you make The Choice?
