  • Eve (Amanda Seyfried) says that she's "not a dog person". In reality, Amanda is very much a dog-lover. She's had a beloved golden retriever named Finn for many years.

Spoilers

  • The film adaptation differs quite drastically from the book it's based on. In the book, Denny is falsely accused of rape by an underage girl who is enamored with him. The character is omitted from the film adaptation entirely and Denny's legal troubles are replaced with his father-in-law accusing him of assault after a fall.
