Goofs

Granted the movie was filmed prior to the 2016 election, it takes place in the summer of 2017 between Alex's graduation from high school and start of her freshman year at college. The Johansens state several times that they have a month to make Alex's tuition money. According to the financial statement Scott & Kate receive in the mail, the tuition is due on August 20, 2017. So we can presume that events in the film take place during the Summer of 2017. However, in one scene to test his sobriety, Kate asks Scott who is President. He mumbles Barack Obama, which Kate seems to affirm. However, Trump would have already been inaugurated President in January 2017. See more »

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!
