Producer Neal H. Moritz and director Andy Tennant are neighbors. One day they were chatting to each other over their fence when Moritz asked Tennant if he was working on anything at that moment. Tennant replied that he wasn't doing anything at the time. That was when Moritz realized that his neighbor would be the perfect choice to direct this screenplay. See more »

I really don't understand the harsh reviews here. Many are just not credible when they're overstating their dislike of the movie. What did they want? nudity, swearing, bathroom jokes? Jeez, not enough of that in Hollywood! This movie was exactly what I was expecting, so I liked it. This is not a Jim Carey movie so don't expect a silly, slapstick film. The script here is better than many movies I've seen lately that did better at the box office, so the only thing I can assume is that people went in with an expectation of a different type of film. If you don't go in with expectations of big laughs, but rather a nice movie about an ex in trouble and her slightly vindictive ex-husband taking pleasure in hauling her back for cash, you'll like this movie. That is, unless your more into just thinking what critics tell you to think. I'd like to see Butler do more of these movies.
