When you see the heroes arguing over what genre of film to make, the writers had a very similar conversation as to what type of movie they should write. This is what spawned the creation of "And Scene!"
The little girl in the movie is wearing distinctive gloves because the director, thought that they might not be able to film her last scene at the café and might have to rely on a voice over from her. The gloves would serve as an indication of who said those lines when you see her standing at the tree after the credits.
In the original version, the heist scene didn't make the cut. The finished film had to be 4 minutes or less. The director felt this was the only scene that he could sacrifice. The original TRT was 3 minutes and 58 seconds.
