But as Don undertakes his newest mission, and quickly falls for the boss's daughter Ivy, he realizes he'll have to trust more than his cars and his crafty skills in deceit to make a success out of the daunting weekend.
Nine cast members in this film have played a major to a small role on the sitcom The Office (2005); David Koechner, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson, Paul Lieberstein, Rob Riggle, Will Ferrell, Ken Jeong, Jessica St. See more » During the scene where Don is making a tandem skydive into the Selleck dealership, there are a number of obvious mistakes regarding the parachute gear: You can see there is no main parachute connected at the "three ring circus" connector point on the main harness as the two are in the aircraft doorway; There is no drogue parachute used during the freefall; Under canopy, there are only 5 or 6 straight cords connecting the parachute to the harness, instead of 10 to 12 split lines; The parachute the two land under is very small (less than 200 square feet), instead of the 400 - 500 square feet required for a tandem rig; and when Cessna Jim pulls his parachute up after landing, it is not connected anywhere to the harness.

For about the last decade and a half he was the white-guy collaborator, super-close in fact, with Dave Chappelle. It's so thin that you'd need Nicole Richie standing by it for comparison.
