But their success is no joke. 2017 completely changed the couples' lives forever. The film even snagged a few SAG Award nominations.
One major change has been being recognized by celebrities.
"Are you kidding me? I lose my mind," Gordon said in regards to meeting stars. In fact, Nanjiani said the best thing about this whole journey has been meeting people he looks up to. One of those people was none other than Holly Hunter, the actress who played Emily's mother in the movie.
Calling Hunter an "icon" and "legend," the pair talked about how ecstatic they were when the actress signed on. Gordon was especially glad to have Hunter represent her own mother.
Gordon remarked, "We've had a really good year this year of good mom characters... I like that Holly's one of them, playing a version of my mom."
