** Elements of Rainbow Randolph, an actor who does a lot of kid-friendly fair, but is actually very foul mouthed, is more than a bit like Creator/RobinWilliams in real life. Really the main difference between the two is that Randolph is a scumbag, and Williams definitely was not.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/RobinWilliams, best known for playing lovable ManChild characters, plays a straight up asshole as Rainbow Randolph. Williams joked in an interview that his friends called this movie, ''{{Film/Insomnia}}'', and ''Film/OneHourPhoto'' his "trifecta of evil."

* PlayingAgainstType: In films before this, Ed Norton mostly played very strong and angry dramatic characters. Here he's a goofy hippie.
