Worst: How did they fall in love again?
OK, so the movie makes it pretty clear that Annie (Cameron Diaz) and Jay (Jason Segel) were horn dogs in college, but where did they actually fall in love? All of a sudden, Annie gets pregnant and that's their excuse for getting married when they are 21 or 22-years-old? (Are they out of college? Are they not?) We're repeatedly reminded that they have amazing chemistry in bed, but that doesn't necessarily make for a loving relationship. This is problematic since it appears their "love" is based only on sex by the time we get to modern day the audience isn't invested one way or another.
