* TakeThatCritics: The critic, whose demise is a thinly-veiled TakeThat against people who don't like Shyamalan's movies. This ''badly'' backfired on Shyamalan, for obvious reasons. Creator/MarkKermode pointed out in his review of the film that it was the critics who were championing his films in the first place.

Fixed a typo.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Once the characters catch onto the fact that they're in a fairy tale, they assume they know he roles they should play. They're wrong.

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Story is very close to Cleaveland. The first scene with the Scrunt shows her cuddling up to him beforehand.

* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Much like ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' is a tribute to the MagnificentBastard trope, this movie revels in this one. Literally every early background character becomes crucial to the plot later on. Reggie's role was foreshadowed when he talks about how he's doing his "exercise experiments" because he wants to do something special.]] He's also watching in the background of a lot of crowd scenes...y'know, [[spoiler:like a watchman, or a guardian maybe?]] * CreatorCameo: Shyamalan does this in all his films. This is the first time he's a major character. But just what his character will do - [[spoiler:namely, inspire a great world leader with his writing]] - ticked a lot of people off [[Main/SmallNameBigEgo for obvious reasons]].

* SelfMadeOrphan: The Tartutic are described as being SO evil that they kill their parents after they're born. ([[FridgeLogic One wonders]] [[{{Headscratchers}} how the species survives]], if they're that uncooperative.)

Creator/MNightShyamalan writes and directs this self-proclaimed, grown-up "bedtime story" about an apartment building superintendent named Cleveland (Paul Giamatti) who discovers a magical sea-nymph named Story (Bryce Dallas Howard) who's been transported to this world and is living in the building's own swimming pool. As this bizarre revelation sinks in, Cleveland becomes enraptured by her other-worldly charm. As he shelters her in his apartment, other inhabitants of the building begin falling into place as representations of characters from an Eastern myth in which these mermaids, or "narfs," co-exist unhappily with more beastly and violent characters. In human reality, the forces of darkness that threaten the heroes of a fairy tale prove to be much more terrifying, and the victory of good over evil is by no means guaranteed. Jeffery Wright, Jared Harris and Mary Beth Hurt co-star, as well as Shyamalan himself, playing [[AuthorAvatar the visionary writer Vick]].
