Goofs

Around 1:11:00 and 1:14:00 in the movie, a scene can be seen two times. It's the one where on can see the cop and counselor's car from behind, as they are going fast.

There is a black car on the left, a grey one on the right, and a white painting on the road. It's obvious this is one scene used twice. See more »

Quotes

Joe: [Gestures to the feminine sunglasses Scott is wearing] Are those women's sunglasses?
Scott Johansen: No, they're Italian.
Joe: [Gesturing to the thin long cigarette Scott is smoking] Well that's a woman's cigarette - that's nice.
Scott Johansen: No - also Italian. Italian sunglasses, Italian cigarettes.
Joe: Okay. Ciao!

Don't pay attention to the bad reviews.
14 September 2017 | by TheWalkingDoodSee all my reviews

Switch of for 90 mins. Enjoy a movie for what it is. Don't compare to others, criticise, judge or hold a candle. Just watch the movie with no bias and expectations and ask yourself at the end did I like it?

I did that and I enjoyed this movie. It made me laugh. Will and Amy were great as the quirky couple who will do anything to make sure their daughter gets a good start in life. The supporting cast were funny and believable (In that zany movie dimension) and I enjoyed the other characters as much as the main cast.

"Will it win an Oscar?" Hell no... "Will it go down in history?" I doubt it.... "Is it the funniest film ever?" No way.... But give it a try. It's ten thousand times better than most of the garbage that's been released this year.
