I'm having a heart attack, you idiot.
In the middle of the movie, the Cheneys are said to raise Golden Retrievers. The two dogs shown with them are Labrador Retrievers.
Halfway through the end credits, there's an extra scene with one of the focus groups seen earlier in the film. One of the men starts claiming the film has a liberal bias. Another man starts debating this with him, the argument soon turns to the subject of President Trump and the first man physically attacks the other man for disparaging Trump. Two of the young women then start discussing the latest Fast and Furious movie, which "looks so lit".
