Near the end, a video is watched from a Fisher Price PXL 2000 camcorder hooked up to the TV. Audio is heard but only the yellow video cable is connected. These camcorders had an RF modulated output so video and audio were output through a single cable and modulated so a television could tune into the signal on channel 3 or 4 when attached to the antenna connector.

It's very difficult to give a higher rate to this movie. It's supposed to be presented as a different romantic comedy, yet, it's the same old story that bores to death. The promiscuous irresponsible guy ('cause men are always like that) and the promiscuous irresponsible girl (she's just that way 'cause she has a broken heart, 'cause women are never like that) played by Gyllenhall and Hathaway are just not convincing. Their respective friends -his loser brother and her gay black friend (sounds familiar?) are just useless for the plot.
The "originality" is in the "dramatic" story of Hathaway's character and the 90's background, with its medical consumerism and the negotiation with the health system. Yet this two aspects, perhaps the less bad things of the film, are poorly treated in the script. Such a bad cinematographic experience. The movie is not only bad, is not even funny!
