* AdultFear: Anyone with any involvement with scuba diving probably cringed throughout this whole film. It doesn't help that this has really happened.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The movie is based on the story of Tom and Eileen Lonergan, who were lost at sea after being left behind by their diving boat. As no one knows exactly what happened, the "at-sea" scenes (which comprise the majority of the movie) have been inferred.
