The "airport station" stop shown in the film is actually the Wood Island station on the Blue MBTA line. The actual Airport station is one stop before. See more »
The MBTA (subway) map at the beginning of the film is wrong. It also doesn't correspond to the subway route used in the movie. The conductor says the next stop inbound is Aquarium from Airport. The map says the next stop should be Maverick (which it is, in real life). See more »
Unlike most romantic comedies that get distributed, Next Stop Wonderland is neither star-peopled nor entirely plot-driven. Although the film was marketed as another Nora Ephron knockoff, it is very different from the slick, syrupy Meg Ryan vehicles viewers were led to believe it would resemble. Brad Anderson's beautiful, shimmering treatment of light, and his pleasingly idiosyncratic manner of filming the Boston urban landscape (and the lovely Hope Davis), well serve the sympathetic honesty with which he treats the search for love in the modern American city. A magnificent film.
