Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • According to the book The Man Who Heard Voices, or How M. Night Shyamalan Risked His Career on a Fairy Tale, one of the reasons why Shyamalan decided to part with Disney was because the Disney president of development Nina Jacobsen took her son to a party instead of staying home to read the script for Lady in the Water. Shyamalan had it personally couriered to her, and to add insult to injury, she didn't like it anyway. Shyamalan went off in a huff, and the "creative differences" he purportedly had with Disney was that he simply felt there was nothing creative about Disney anymore. He took the script to Warner Bros instead, but without the usual marketing campaign that Disney promoted his other films with, Lady in the Water was a box-office flop.
  • The plot of the movie is based on a bedtime story M. Night Shyamalan wrote for his kids.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the apartment just after Cleveland rescues Story, we see Story talking to Cleveland. From Story's perspective she is looking directly over her knees which are closed towards Cleveland. It would appear she is sitting normally on the sofa. From Clevelands perspective, she is looking to the right of her slightly apart knees, and sitting length-ways on the sofa.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Cleveland unblocks the drain in the hippie apartment he wears green rubber gloves. Next shot (same scene) he holds pliers and doesn't wear the gloves.
