Known Trivia

  • Jason Segel and Emily Blunt previously played romantic interests in Gulliver’s Travels. They also both appeared in The Muppets.
  • In order to fine-tune her character Suzie’s British accent, Alison Brie listened to recordings of readings provided by her British co-star Emily Blunt.
  • Almost all of the restaurant scenes are shot inside the MGM Grand Detroit.
  • The dress that Violet wears during her wedding is Valentino. It is also one of the dresses featured in the magazine she looks through earlier in the film.

Goofs: Continuity: Violet's outfit changes during the viewing of the donut testing participants. She starts in the same outfit, changes to another, then is suddenly back in the original outfit.

Plot: One year after meeting, Tom proposes to his girlfriend, Violet, but unexpected events keep tripping them up as they look to walk down the aisle together. Full summary »  »

Story: In San Francisco, after a year's relationship, Tom proposes to Violet; she accepts. She's an experimental psychologist, hoping for a post-doc at Cal. He's a sous chef who runs the kitchen when the chef is away. When Cal falls through and she gets an offer in Ann Arbor, Tom agrees to support the move, turning down a job as chef at a new restaurant. The move requires postponing the wedding. At Michigan, Violet is in her element, but Tom is underemployed and frustrated; he's Stoic for a while, but when two years in Michigan become four, Tom's frustrations boil over, and on the eve of yet another wedding date, they must make a choice. Is there any other alternative?Written by <>
