Production of the film had to be shut down for four days, due to Ben Affleck's refusal to follow David Fincher's vision, and wear a New York Yankees cap for a scene where Affleck's character, Nick, is at an airport. The Bostonian actor said to Fincher, "David, I love you, I would do anything for you. But I will not wear a Yankees hat." Eventually, the two settled for Ben's character to wear a Mets cap. Fincher jokingly describes Affleck's actions of this as "entirely unprofessional" in the DVD's audio commentary. See more »
One piece of crucial evidence that could implicate Amy and be seen as very suspicious is the getaway car that she used. She bought the car from a Craigslist seller, and picked it up in person, so the seller definitely saw her face. She is found by Desi Collings at the casino and he takes her to his home, In his car, leaving hers behind at the casino. The car would eventually be towed by the tow truck company and they'd try to contact the original owner. The car originally belonged to the seller and he'd definitely remember that he sold his car to Amy, as her disappearance became a nationwide media frenzy and he'd recognize her by memory. This would lead to the authorities checking out the surveillance footage of the casino where the car was left (which they'd definitely have so as to catch cheaters) and they'd see Amy being friendly and civil with her supposed kidnapper. While the novel does have a scene showing Desi helping Amy to dispose of the car in a lake, such a scene is never shown in the film, so the car just disappears from the film without explanation.

When I think of my wife, I always think of the back of her head. I picture cracking her lovely skull, unspooling her brain, trying to get answers. The primal questions of a marriage: What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What have we done to each other? What will we do?

Gone Girl (2014) This is a psychological thriller set in Missouri.The mystery surrounds a man who becomes the main suspect in the sudden disappearance of his wife. The film was praised by critics and audiences alike. It received multiple award nominations. The casting was superb. Rosamund Pike received an Oscar nod as the wife. The first hour sets the stage. Then the fun really begins. Good fun for those who like twisted humor. Regardless, it's really entertaining. The way it ended is priceless.
