In a nod to Seattle's music scene, Ellie's sea horses are named Kurt and Courtney. See more »
When Ellie and Charlie park the motor-home to see the guy with information on where Matthew is, it is pulled off perpendicular to the road. When they are shown getting out, the motor-home is parallel to the road. See more »
Musicians - I mean, men - are toxic to me. And you're both, so, nothing personal.

I watched this on the basis of the good reviews here and elsewhere. Unfortunately I never got into it. None of the characters were particularly likable, apart from perhaps Thomas Haden Church's character. Toni Collette's character seems to have no hesitation in sleeping with most men she either interviews or meets. It just didn't seem real - or does this sort of thing really go on? When things get tough for her she ends up smiling inanely, as if she now doesn't care.
I'm a big fan of slow-moving films, as long as the story is good and the acting is strong. I struggled with this one, as both of these factors were missing for me. I didn't care about any particular character and I just didn't care if she found the missing musician or not. Don't get me wrong: the acting wasn't bad, especially when she finally meets the missing musician, but despite the surprise factor (I won't spoil it) it all falls a bit flat for me.
