There are, of course, key differences between the two stories, particularly in terms of tone. Because of details in its setup, centering on a rocky marriage instead of a new-ish relationship, Downhill has more latitude to dig into the seriousness of the premise. It definitely still finds the funny in the situation, but it also respects the gravity of it, and both Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell ultimately deliver two of the best dramatic performances of their respective careers.
