On screen, the martini Emily drinks calls for gin (as opposed to vodka). The bottle shown on screen is Aviation Gin. Off screen, Blake Lively's husband, Ryan Reynolds, had an ownership stake in Aviation Gin at the time of filming; a craft distillery in Portland, Oregon. See more »
The police discover after Emily goes missing that she rented a car from Budget paying with cash. Budget Rent-A-Car does not allow vehicle rentals without payment via credit or debit card, nor do any others in the US. Further, they require a valid driver's license as well, and thus would've already had a record of Emily's rental even if she didn't use a card to pay for it. See more »
[Picks up her son]
Come here, little dude. Oh, my baby! Look at your shirt. Did any food make it into your mouth?
Ask her, Nicky! Ask her!
Ask me what?
We want a play date.
Oh, we can't, mommy already has a play date with a symphony of anti-depressants. Let's go.
Miles Smothers, Nicky Nelson:
Play date! Play date! Play date!
Baby, please don't do this. I got to go. Come on. I got a ton of work to do.
You don't let me have any fun.
That's not true. I let you tear my labia as you exited my body, so you're welcome.

I'm compelled to review since the current rating of 6.8 vastly under estimates the fun factor of this movie. I found this title after watching Last Christmas which also starred Henry Golding. I assumed it was another chick flick but my husband acquiesced good-naturedly and ended up loving it as much as I did. The dialogue is clever and sometimes LOL funny and, while we did predict a couple of twists, it still delivered some surprises. Anna Kendrick shines as the unlikely "best friend" of Blake Lively. Thoroughly enjoyable.
