The picaresque and touching story of the politically incorrect, fully lived life of the impulsive, irascible and fearlessly blunt Barney Panofsky.
In the film, Miriam Grant (Rosamund Pike) and the 2nd Mrs P (Minnie Driver) both attended McGill University. Ironically, out of all three actresses to play Barney's wives, it is the actress playing Clara (Rachelle Lefevre) who is an actual graduate of McGill University.
Barney Panofsky: Blair, I'd like to speak with my wife.
Blair: Oh, Barney, it's 3:00 in the morning.
Barney Panofsky: Put my wife on the phone.
Blair: She's not your wife and I'm not waking her.
Barney Panofsky: All right. Well, then just ask her what she wants me to do with all these nude photos I have of...
During Blair's discussion of the future of veganism over dinner he ponders whether one should say "in less than 50 years" or "in fewer than 50 years". He incorrectly settles on "fewer" reasoning that you're counting years and not measuring time. A ten-year calendar has fewer than 50 years on it, but something that will come to pass sooner than 50 years from now will do so in less than 50 years.
