When Jim is talking to his boss on his cell phone, he looks down from the balcony. You can tell that their room is on a high floor. But when the family leaves the room and goes to the elevator it has a number 2 near the elevator door, indicating the scene was filmed in the 2nd floor hallway. See more »

Jim: [on the phone] What? I don't understand.
Man: Listen to me. Don't let your imagination run wild. It's a transitional period.
Jim: So, you're firing me for no real reason, then?
Man: Well, there's a little more to it than that.

Imperfect and not for everyone, but I quite liked it
30 October 2013 | by zetesSee all my reviews

The infamous film that was shot almost entirely at Disneyworld. The thought was, when it opened at Sundance in January, that Disney would sue it out of existence, that maybe you'd only ever be able to see it if it popped up online at some point. In the end, though, Disney just decided to ignore it (some have pointed out that the company's infamous litigiousness is more a thing of the past). So the next question has to be, does this actually work as a film, or is it just a curio? In my opinion, it very much is a curio, but not just because of the circumstances of its production. It is, in fact, an extremely weird film. It's far from perfect, but, really, it's so weirdly entertaining that I don't really care. The one thing I really love about it is the black and white cinematography - it's really gorgeous and eerie. The film has a hypnotic quality. It's well worth checking out.
