    Oddly enough, I was never bothered by the product placement in the film. In fact, in some ways, it made sense. Bobby Cannavale’s character is sort of a child, so it would make sense that he would spend his time playing video games. And I’m okay with the specific video game system he uses being given a name. It always bothers me when people in a movie order a “Soda” or a “Beer.” These characters are supposed to live in the real world, and here in that world we think in terms of products, whether we like it or not. As such, it doesn’t bother me when, in a movie, somebody orders a Coke or a Heineken. And while, yes, the Nintendo Wii does have incredibly prominent placement in the film, I think McCarthy managed to make it seem organic. To me, anyway.

  2. I’m with Battleship on this one. It never seemed out of place to me.
