Trivia

There are actually many types of ferns in this film. Most often Zach is with an athyrium filix-femina, the lady fern, or the highly popular Boston fern, nephrolepis exaltata. See more »

Goofs

When John Legend sprays Zach in the face with mace, his own face is less than a foot away. At that range the mace would have blown back into his own face and heavily affected him. See more »

Credit outtakes almost make up for rest of movie
22 September 2019 | by mark-23851See all my reviews

It was watchable and had a few humorous moments throughout but I laughed much more during the credit outtakes than during any other part of the film. They probably should have just rolled that for 90 minutes.
