If Jack Dunkleman’s milk crate had been crushed in the first film, the entire movie would have had an entirely new meaning. “During that final kiss scene with Jodi and Dunkleman when he steps upon the crate, there was a gag that he fell through the crate,” Griffin Gluck revealed to The List. “Like, he saved the crate for this magical moment, and then, when he finally gets to use it, it doesn’t work.” Needless to say, this ending would have not been as adorable as we had all anticipated the moment we started watching the first movie.
Luckily, everyone on-set knew that this wasn’t the right way to end Dunkleman and Jodi’s love story. Falling through the crate in the first movie “just, like, kind of ruined the scene,” Gluck said. “It kind of, like, interrupted it, but they found a place for it again in the second one.”
“Tall Girl 2” is available to stream now exclusively on Netflix.
