Trivia

This is Timothy Olyphant and Jennifer Aniston's second movie together. They both appeared in Rock Star (2001), in which Aniston played Wahlberg's girlfriend and Timothy Olyphant played Wahlberg's best friend. See more »

Goofs

Miranda says she was 16 years old when she gave birth to Kristin, so their age difference should be 16 years. Character ages are not specified in the film, but Julia Roberts is 23 years older than Britt Robertson, which is almost a 50% discrepancy. It's common for an actor's age not to match their character's age. Sometimes actors are younger that the actors playing their character's children. See more »

Quotes

Jesse: [to her son, who's peeing in front of the guests] Tanner, nononono!
Kristin: Oh!
Jesse: It's like the fourth time he's done this.

Much better than the critics reviews
6 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

I loved it. My husband and I thoroughly laughed until my stomach hurt. This movie is very funny and has lots of funny tag lines to laugh about later. I don't get the rude reviews and the harsh comments. I thought it was very well done and a different twist. If you are super critical and everything offends you easily, this isn't the movie for you. But if you like a good clean movie that isn't filled with naked sex starved scenes you will enjoy it. It is nice sometimes not to get cussed out and see every body part on a person. Just good clean fun is enjoyable too. It has many judgmental aspects, but it's a comedy, get over yourself. People make things too deep. The critics are just that, too critical. They rip movies apart so much it's hard to please them.

This movie is funny and as a mother (sister and child), I loved it. My mother would have enjoyed it too. I will be recommending it to whomever wants a unique take on a movie. I thought it was going to be sappy and it wasn't. I laughed repeatedly, my husband did too and so did the entire theater. My sister and I went on a double date, loved by us all. Great movie.
