Trivia

Every time Marnie's driving in her car, she's listening to Beyonce. See more »

Goofs

When Zipper gives Marnie a ride on his Harley, they leave Du-Par's Restaurant in the Fairfax neighborhood heading north on Fairfax, then in the next shot are shown going north on Van Nuys Blvd. crossing Magnolia Blvd., which is over ten miles north in the San Fernando Valley. After that brief shot, they are shown sitting on a bench south of the Santa Monica Pier. Santa Monica is nearly due west of the Fairfax area. Unless the BMW dealership in Sherman Oaks paid for a product placement, there's no reason for them to have gone so far north. See more »

Quotes

Marnie: I thought you gave up smoking.
Lori: Cigarettes. You said this was better.
Marnie: I said it was okay after your father died when your stomach hurt.
Lori: Well, it's after my father died and my stomach hurts.

Can I get my 1 hour wasted on this movie back?!?!?
4 November 2016 | by pointzeropictures-1See all my reviews

I guess this was what they call a "chick-flick". Simply one of the most boring, going- nowhere-meandering, "what's this nonsense about?" movies of all time. Can I please have my 1 hour back I wasted on this so called movie? I'll never get it back... Gave up waiting for something interesting to happen after an hour of total boredom. A depressing movie with plenty of substance abuse, dysfunctional, and immoral relationships.

How do these silly movies get made? What a total waste. Susan Sarandon is OK but she is actually in one giant annoying role.

Stay away, plenty of other entertaining movies around...
