So this is the reason why parking is more difficult.

This movie is going to tank.

Is it me, or is the production of this taking a while? It's like they are trying to film in every current hip spot under 14th street, as if it was a ny times style section video piece.

People will be visiting these places for the next 50+ years because they used these businesses in the production

I just wanted to say: EVERY comment above was wrong. The movie was average, maybe slightly above average. Some people liked it, others didn't, but definitely worth seeing. It was a box office success (at time of writing, they are nearing $200 mill earned on a $70 mill budget). Veselka (or any other NYC location, for that matter) will not be visited for the "next 50 years" on account of being used in this movie.

Perfect example of how the Internet has become so ridiculous. Our first instinct is to exaggerate. We feel the need to react wildly to every little thing. I just thought I'd point that out.
