- Box Office Bomb: Budget, $20 million. Box office, $3,531,756 (domestic), $5,529,464 (worldwide). Its widest release was in 209 theaters but the critics generally liked it. Rian Johnson had better luck with his next film, Looper.
- Cast the Runner-Up:
- Rian Johnson originally had Mark Ruffalo in mind to play the part that Adrien Brody eventually played. It was the two actors themselves that suggested swapping.
- Johnson had originally asked Ricky Jay to play The Curator, but Jay's schedule didn't allow for that, so Johnson hired Robbie Coltrane for that role instead.
- Real-Life Relative: Composer Nathan Johnson is Rian Johnson's cousin.
- Working Title: Penelope.
