One funny moment featured in the trailer for the action comedy “The Spy Who Dumped Me,” has Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, playing friends surprised to find themselves in the middle of a spy caper, escaping a harrowing situation and searching for a getaway car.

Read the New York Times review of the movie:

The two commandeer a vehicle but realize neither of them can drive a stick shift and the car moves sloooowly down the street.

That would seem a cinch to shoot right? Just put a car in neutral and go? Turns out it was a lot more complicated than that. Here, the director Susanna Fogel discusses what it took to pull it off (cables, rigs and more that were digitally removed in post-production).
