Daniel Dae Kim filmed scenes playing a young Adjustment Bureau officer called Henderson, who often patronised the older Richardson, sarcastically offering his help. The scenes, and the character, were eventually cut from the final film. Two of the scenes appear in the bonus features of the DVD release. See more »
When Elise takes David to the nightclub, part of the scene is clearly where the photo was taken seen in "The Post's" article which was years before that occurred. See more »

This film is about a successful politician who has to choose between the woman of his dreams and his career, when he meets a team of messengers who control fate.
"The Adjustment Bureau" is certainly a different romantic film. The plot is an engaging and refreshing mix of romance and science fiction. The thrill and excitement of the science fiction part is well maintained throughout the film, while the romance part melts viewers hearts. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt are so convincing together, making their romance very believable. Once again, Emily Blunt puts on a particularly stellar performance, showing her impressive range of acting skills and on screen charm.
"The Adjustment Bureau" is a good film as it is a refreshing departure from mundane and formulaic romantic comedies. It deserves 100 minutes of your time.
