Did You Know?
The eccentric house that Calvin's mother Gertrude in which lives is supposed to be in Big Sur, but it is actually a house in the Hollywood Hills that once belonged to Sid Krofft
. Much of the dialogue in that scene describing material details about the house was written on the spot based on the actual owner's tour of the place on the day of the shoot. See more

What's your dog's name?
Uh, Scotty. I named him for F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Isn't that disrespectful?
Naming your dog after him? It's a little disrespectful. Think about it. You're a novelist. You think this guy's the greatest. So you name your dog after him to cut him down to size. This way, you can put him on a leash... and yell "Bad Scotty" and feel all superior because you pee inside. Kill your idols, man. I'm all for it.
This film is dedicated to Jay Kaplan who brought love and magic to everyone he met. See more
