Trivia

Tim Roth has said making this film abused him, and he'll never watch it. He said he was particularly disturbed because Devon Gearhart resembled his own son.
The film is a shot-by-shot remake of the Austrian Funny Games (1997), also directed by Michael Haneke.
According to Naomi Watts, the only suggestion that Michael Haneke accepted from the actors was that Ann got undressed earlier than she did in the original movie. Haneke agreed with Watts that this would make Ann even more vulnerable.
Director Michael Haneke also directed the Austrian original: Funny Games (1997).
The production crew used the blueprints from the 1997 original. The set of the house in the 2007 American remake has the same proportions as that of the 1997 set.
Cameo: Susanne Haneke - The woman on the boat with Betsy, introduced as Betsy's sister in law, is played by the director Michael Hanneke's wife, Susanne.
As of 2017, this is the only film directed by Michael Haneke to not have had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
