| Tully smashes Hollywood's glamorous image of motherhood.
Tully is a return to form for both director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody. Featuring great performances, an unflinching and engrossing look on motherhood and a witty, acerbic script. Tully is a film worth looking out for.

Trivia

Charlize Theron gained 50 pounds for the role. She adhered to an excessive diet of junk food, processed foods, In-N-Out Burger, and milkshakes. Theron would eat macaroni and cheese at 2 a.m. to help keep on the weight. Theron said that her youngest child had mistaken her for being pregnant, given the extensive weight gain, and that it took a year and a half for her to shed the weight.


Quotes

Elyse: She could have it in the ofuro. We just got this Japanese soaking tub. Craig's boss gave it to us.
Marlo: Wow. My boss once gave me the flu.


Goofs

Early in the film, an elderly woman looks disapprovingly at the main character ordering a decaf coffee (after telling her that caffeine is bad for the fetus). In fact, caffeine is bad primarily because it raises blood pressure without providing any nutrients to the fetus. This is not the case with decaf coffee. The blood pressure change associated with decaf coffee is not statistically significant and puts the baby at no risk of harm. Theoretically, if a pregnant mother drank dozens of cups of decaf coffee it *might* increase her blood pressure but it is very unlikely (not to mention very difficult to actually achieve that level of consumption). Most experts agree that caffeine is safe during pregnancy if limited to 200 mg or less per day.
