Movie Quote Quiz

Artie Decker: I'm awkward around those kids. I don't think they like me.

Artie Decker: OK, hop out.
Barker Simmons: I'm still buckled in.
Artie Decker: Oh, boy. This is harder than one of your grandma's bras.
Barker Simmons: It's not rocket science.

Harper Simmons: Mom, you lied to me! Yogurt is not like ice-cream!

Diane Decker: If they don't see you enough, they have to know you better before they don't like you.

Other mistake: At the party after award ceremony, we see the awards are dated 2012. Artie says he is 58, meaning he was born in 1954. He says Alice was born when he was 23, so in 1977, and she says Harper was born when she was 26. This would mean Harper was born in 2003, but she says she's 12, meaning it would really be 2015.

Question: I don't understand why Barker couldn't get unbuckled in the car. Why couldn't Artie just remove his hand from the seat belt?


Answer: It's demonstrated throughout the film that Artie struggles with the modern way of doing things. This may extend to modern car seat belts with their five point harness systems. That and the fact they're already late for school and holding up the traffic makes it a stressful situation for Artie and it was probably easier (and to add comedy) for Artie just to rip the seat out with the boy still in it.
