In the apartment just after Cleveland rescues Story, we see Story talking to Cleveland. From Story's perspective she is looking directly over her knees which are closed towards Cleveland. It would appear she is sitting normally on the sofa. From Clevelands perspective, she is looking to the right of her slightly apart knees, and sitting length-ways on the sofa. See more »
Once, man and those in the water were linked. They inspired us. They spoke of the future. Man listened and it became real. But man does not listen very well. Man's need to own everything led him deeper into land. The magic world of the ones that lived in the ocean... and the world of men... separated. Through the centuries, their world and all the inhabitants of it... stopped trying. The world of man became more violent. War upon war played out, as there were no guides to listen to...

After the movie has ended, and all of the credits have scrolled, there appears the following dedication from M. Night Shyamalan: "To my daughters, I'll tell you this story one more time. But then go to bed." See more »
What was the point in making this movie? If you were asked to perform in a 'ceremony' that sends a girl back to another world - wouldn't you want to know just a little bit more! No not in this movie, the characters just shrug their shoulders and do as they are told. Believability is NIL. The worst parts are the development of the story, with the main male character acting 'thinking', most of the time you've usually guessed the outcome or he dashes off and the result is so improbable that you just think WHAT. The girl is absolutely pathetic as an actress and the part she plays you just wish she'd get eaten by the monster with lots of blood and gore just to get rid of her. She just stares moodily, and gazes at the right people at the right time - get on with it!!!
