* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It is unclear whether [[spoiler:Libby, Trish and Dee Dee are Peter's hallucinations, or his real wife and children living in the afterlife.]] In fact, the film provides evidence for both version, and it's a major part of the plot. However, the end gives us a pretty solid Blink-And-You'll-Miss-It that gives it away: [[spoiler: Libby is able to brush past the chimes on her way up the stairs and divert attention away from Peter. It's the only scene where she interacts with a physical object in front of anyone but him or their children.]]

* CreatorBacklash: Jim Sheridan doesn't like the final cut of the film as he was locked out of the editing room as punishment for bad test screenings (he did do studio-mandated reshoots though).

Added DiffLines:

** If you watch closely in the scene where Will demands the cops to chase after what is presumably Peter Ward driving off, [[spoiler: Libby watches from the porch with the lights noticeably on in the house. However, in almost every other shot, the house is completely dark and Libby is nowhere to be found, implying the foreshadowing of their deaths.]]
