Not only does Tom Hanks finding love while snorkeling refer back to "Splash (1984)," in both films his character has a similar name - Alan and Allen. See more »
(@47:32) When they park the car at the construction site and walk out, the shadow of the building falls about 2m away from the front of the car. But when viewed from the opposite angle, there is no shadow at all. (The shadows in the background keep jumping back and forth in the wide angle shots for about a minute.) See more »

You may find yourself living in your garden shack. And you may find yourself not at home in your home. And you may find yourself looking for your large automobile. And you may find yourself without a beautiful house. Without a beautiful wife. And you may ask yourself "Well, how did I get here?"

Can't put my finger on it......
I am not sure what I was expecting from this movie going in. Now that I have seen it, I am glad that my expectations were tempered. This movie lacked the traditional intensity that a Tom Hanks film usually delivers. I can't put my finger on just what I didn't like about the film. Was it the fact that this movie couldn't decide if it was a love story, or a comedy? Or that the underdevelopment of the characters left me scratching my head. Or that the storytelling seemed rushed in slow moving manner. In any case, I was disappointed in this movie when I walked out of the theater. I was a little surprised that Hanks even took this role after reading the script. This movie was beneath his talent. Anybody could have played the part and done just as well.
