Trivia Director M. Night Shyamalan adapted Lady in the Water, originally a bedtime story, into an actual children's book. It was released on the same day as this film. See more »
Goofs (at around 32 mins) When he sees Vick's book "The Cookbook," Cleveland Heep says to himself, "This is s-s-s-s-silly." Stutterers often do not have a stammer when talking to themselves; they stutter primarily when talking to other people. However, Cleveland's stutter is a symptom of Post-traumatic Stress, in which case the stutter typically remains constant regardless of social situation until the stress is dealt with. See more »
