Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family's expectations, and his true feelings.
Composer Michael Andrews initially incorporated Eastern-style music into his score to help illustrate the film's themes of culture clash and assimilation. This idea was eventually scrapped as Andrews said it "felt forced."
I don't want kids. People say, "Sam, you're gonna love it. This kid... you're gonna have a kid. He's gonna be your best friend." A best friend that pukes on you and shits everywhere and is constantly screaming. I already *have* friends like that.
Near the end of the movie when Kumail is looking through the window in the hospital room door he can see Emily's head but when the shot switches to the other side of the bed it is obvious you would not be able to see her from the window because of the angle of the bathroom wall.
In the beginning of the end credits, photos of shown of the real-life inspiration behind the Emily character, as well as the wedding between Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani and Nanjiani's real-life parents.
