Mariah Carey was scheduled to film a cameo but her scenes were never filmed. Will Ferrell recalled that she showed up four hours late, then didn't want to do the scene she had agreed to do. She then delayed production by not wanting to sing the song (one of her own) that she was supposed to sing. This would have required the legal department to clear the song. Carey also required her trailer to be filled with white flowers and stuffed lambs. Carey's scene was ultimately not filmed. See more »
Around 1:11:00 and 1:14:00 in the movie, a scene can be seen two times. It's the one where on can see the cop and counselor's car from behind, as they are going fast.
There is a black car on the left, a grey one on the right, and a white painting on the road. It's obvious this is one scene used twice. See more »
[Gestures to the feminine sunglasses Scott is wearing]
Are those women's sunglasses?
No, they're Italian.
[Gesturing to the thin long cigarette Scott is smoking]
Well that's a woman's cigarette - that's nice.
No - also Italian. Italian sunglasses, Italian cigarettes.

After the last scene and before the credits start rolling, there is a series of blooper scenes from different cast members. See more »
Switch of for 90 mins. Enjoy a movie for what it is. Don't compare to others, criticise, judge or hold a candle. Just watch the movie with no bias and expectations and ask yourself at the end did I like it?
I did that and I enjoyed this movie. It made me laugh. Will and Amy were great as the quirky couple who will do anything to make sure their daughter gets a good start in life. The supporting cast were funny and believable (In that zany movie dimension) and I enjoyed the other characters as much as the main cast.
"Will it win an Oscar?" Hell no... "Will it go down in history?" I doubt it.... "Is it the funniest film ever?" No way.... But give it a try. It's ten thousand times better than most of the garbage that's been released this year.
