Trivia

Almost all the scenes involving the Littles are shot with heavy amounts of blue and red in the shot, most noticeably in their clothing.
In December 2009 Gergely Barki (an art researcher at Hugary's National Gallery) was watching the film with his daughter and saw a painting on the wall in the background of the Little apartment. He recognized it as the long-lost work "Sleeping Lady with Black Vase" by Robert Bereny, which Barki had only ever seen as a black & white photograph from 1928. Barki hunted the painting through the studio, finding it had been purchased from an antique shop by an assistant to the set designer for $500 to use in the film; she then purchased it from the studio once the production was completed. The painting was sold by the American owner to a collector. As of November 2014 the painting was to be auctioned in Budapest, with a starting price of EUR110000 ($137000).
Jenny McCarthy was offered the female lead role, but declined.

A set decorator assistant for the film purchased an abstract painting for $500 in an antique shop in Pasadena and used it as a set prop; in the film, it is visible in several scenes hanging above the fireplace in the Littles' living room.

Hungarian National Gallery art historian Gergely Barki recognized the painting while watching the film in 2009 as a work by Hungarian artist Robert Bereny titled "Sleeping Woman with Black Vase". The painting had not been seen since the late 1920s and was considered lost.

Barki tracked down the painting, which had been bought by the set decorator assistant after production on the film had ended and was later sold to an art collector.

The painting is set to be auctioned in December 2014 in Budapest with a starting price of $110,000.

The painting that hangs over the fireplace in the Little family's New York City apartment is "Sleeping Lady with Black Vase," an avant-garde work by Hungarian painter Robert Bereny that was thought to be lost since 1928. It was bought by a set-designer as a prop for $500 at an antique shop in Pasadena, Calif. Its significance was made public when Gergely Barki, a researcher at the Hungarian National Gallery in Budapest, discovered it while watching the film with his daughter on Christmas in 2009.
