When another couple who are close to them announces that they will be separating the Foster's begins to feel that they are heading there as well. So when their date night comes the husband Phil decides to do something different. So, they decided to try and get into a popular restaurant but when they got there it was full, and they were very persistent they decided to "steal" reservation of a couple who doesn't show up and assumed their identity. And that's how everything began when two men approached them mistaking them for the couple.....
Well.. it's kind of entertaining. Not exactly that funny but well... good for popcorn. It's a very simple film... using something ordinary (couple feeling in the rut) and adding a twist. If you are looking for an excellent comedy film.. look for another one.
Phil Foster: Because we're going to find them and we're going to *make* them do it. Once Miletto has the flash drive, this thing ends.
Claire Foster: Okay, I like that. I am completely with you. I just have to ask you one question, and do not judge me. What is a flash drive?
Phil Foster: Seriously?
Claire Foster: Phil, I can't... Phil Foster: Okay, it's a little storage disk that you stick in the side of a laptop.
Claire Foster: Oh, it's a computer sticky thing? That's... in my office, we call it a computer sticky thing.
