Matthew Gray Gubler really twisted his ankle, and it made it into the final cut. He states that it is one of the things he either laughs about, or despairs, depending on his mood. He blames it on the fact he wore matching socks, as he superstitiously believes odd socks are good luck, after his grandmother told him matching ones were bad luck. Every day before and after he wore odd socks, and that was the only time something like that went wrong, when he wore matching ones. I say the evidence is on his side. See more »

In memory of Jacques-Yves Cousteau and with gratitude to the Cousteau Society, which was not involved in the making of this film. See more »
I went into this movie thinking it would be hilarious. I believe this is how the movie was marketed, and would explain the poor box office showing of this movie.
However, this is more a story about life than a comedy. Sure it has a comedy wrapper, but a wrapper is usually thin and inedible compared to the candy inside. This is not your typical candy, but it is fruitful in many ways. This movie is a fabric, not a two dimensional piece of characatured tissue paper as the many signs would have you believe.
This movie is for deep thinking people and those with a heart.
