But when six weeks of romping through the city inadvertently become meaningful, neither is sure they want it to end. New York City
And while Garrett’s friends, Box (Jason Sudeikis) and Dan (Charlie Day), joke about his pre-flight calorie-cutting and his full-time relationship with his cell phone, they don’t like losing their best drinking buddy to yet another rocky romance.

Erin from heading down an all-too-familiar road.
