Early in the movie the car is seen turning off the freeway onto "University Avenue, Palo Alto". The freeway is shown in a rural area. However, the Hwy 101 exits to University Avenue are unmistakably urban. The exit in the movie appears to be from Hwy 280, but University Avenue does not connect to Hwy 280 - the Hwy 280 exit to Palo Alto is Page Mill Road. See more »

Honestly, everyone who reviewed this movie must be very sad individuals. This movie obviously wasn't meant to be the best picture of the year, but it really had its own way of speaking to its viewers. The comedy wasn't what I thought it would be, but the overall emotion I felt from this movie was impeccable. It made me happy, it made me cringe, it made me laugh. This movie deserves no negative reviews, simply because it is what it is and if you don't appreciate that then don't bother leaving your negative opinion.
