Trivia

At one point during the winter room, Ben refers to Mike as the "weird guy at the truck stop." This could be a reference to Mike's actor Tyler Labine who previously played Dale in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. In one early scene, his character is viewed by a group of college kids as a weird guy at a truck stop. See more »

Goofs

In an upside-down billiards bar, when Zoey notices a sliding puzzle, a shot showing the puzzle is flipped horizontally. Also, the shot is not upside-down even though she looks up at the puzzle.

Later, when Mike lifting Zoey to the puzzle, the layout of the puzzle is different from the first appearance, then she gets to the puzzle, the layout changes again. See more »
