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 »

What is wrong with everyone hating on this amazing comedy?
13 September 2017 | by Harrison Tweed (Top Dawg)See all my reviews

WOW is all I have to say. I read most of the (negative) reviews and everyone hating on Will and Amy but I'm unclear what everyone expects - from Will and Amy?! THIS film was their type of comedy - stupid enjoyable fun, and they finally pulled it off to perfection! I want to be clear, although a fan, I'm not a huge fan of either, but they nailed their roles and the comedy in this film that they redeemed themselves and I am now a huge fan of both! Nothing Amy has done in the past has ever made me laugh until now. This is finally the comedy from Will that I've been waiting for from his earlier days.

A bunch of us went to see this and we were in stitches and crying in laughter - and no, we were not drunk or high! This is the funniest comedy I've seen this year and for that matter in a long time.

It was very well written and directed and actually had an entertaining (and for a change) different type of story. All the actors were on point!

Props to everyone involved! I really wish I could find out from all you 'supposedly' Will fans what more you all expected?

It's the perfect comedy and if anyone thinks this is a fake review, check out my over 300 reviews and hundreds of ratings!

A perfect 10/10 from me and I hope there is a part 2 very soon!
