* DarkAndTroubledPast: As AlexProyas got attached to the project, the story grew darker and darker. In the commentary, he reveals that he and Bridget Moynahan talked about the possibility of Susan Calvin [[RapeAsBackstory having been raped,]] leading to her (less so than in the book) misanthropic nature, denial of her emotions, and complete trust of robots "because they're safe." Subtle hints of this are actually visible in the film, if you watch the performance closely.

* MisBlamed: People who didn't like the movie tend to complain that VIKI's [[spoiler:ZerothLawRebellion]] is totally contrary to Asimov's writing. Actually, one of the short stories in the original I, Robot ([[spoiler:"The Evitable Conflict"]]) dealt with exactly that.
