In the beginning of the film, when we are introduced to Margot Tenenbaum, the narrator states that she was 12 years old when she first ran away, and that she ran away a second time 4 years later, when she lost half a finger, making her 16 years old at the time. Later in the film when Margot is telling the story of her lost finger to her nephews, she states that she was only 14 years old when she had run away. See more »

A short segment involving Eli's family (a wife and children) was cut. It would have been where Richie goes to visit for the first time. The segment can be seen in the Criterion Collection DVD and read in the Screenplay. See more »

I think it's unfortunate that some of those who liked this film imply that anyone who found it a waste of time is a boor, who is only interested in Jim Carrey style films. There are some very off-beat, "arty" films that I enjoy a great deal. This was not one of them, though. To me, it was "okay", but certainly not great. The humor was very subtle. I got most of the "jokes" (or humorous aspects, really, more than jokes) that people have mentioned, but they just weren't all that funny, to me. Maybe I actually sympathized with the characters too much; the humor was overwhelmed by the sadness of their situations.
