Did You Know?


A scene was cut from the film where J.C. Chasez's character ends up at a Hollywood orgy where everyone is dressed up like a dog with "Eyes Wide Shut" masks and on drugs. An orchestral version of "Who Let the Dogs Out" sung in the style of a Meatloaf ballad was set to accompany it. See more »


At about 1h 30 mins when Nick is singing on stage, his voice switches to microphone in sync with the music, although he doesn't take the mic from CJ for another 10 seconds. Then when he steps off the stage singing and walking towards Chloe, his voice continues to come from the speakers even though he's wearing no sound equipment. See more »


Nick: [looking bored] Look it's five minutes to show; why do we always have to cut this so close?

Never the 'twain shall meet
16 July 2017 | by belialalbertsSee all my reviews

I love movies and i love music(being a musician myself) but for me it's a case of "Never the twain shall meet". In short I hate people singing in my movies. But this was bloody well done, just the right amount of singing and it made sense. In an era where most "comedies" try to depress the hell out of you for an hour (with a few scattered chuckles thrown in), before the funny and "poignant" ending. This was funny from the start and kept going all the way through. Definitely worth a watch and very entertaining.
