Jamie Dornan called Louis Drax "Lloyd" right before his first nightmare. This mistake not only made it past the crew, cast and director on set, but wasn't even fixed with ADR and is noticeable in the final cut of the film. See more »
Pascal made the mistake that all men make. He thought that because Mommy is so beautiful, then she must be good.

Enjoyable mystery thriller that won't keep you on the edge of your seat but that is still interesting to watch. I do like mysteries, it's one of my favorite genre of movies, and in The 9th Life Of Louis Drax I figured it all out at half of the movie. And other people will probably do as well. That could be a sign that it's not interesting to watch because the story is too obvious. But it isn't at all. Even though I was practically certain what the outcome would be it remains a movie with a high likability to watch. The narrating voice of Aiden Longworth is pleasant to hear, even though I read that other reviewers didn't like it. The kid's character would probably not be the cutest boy to live with but in the movie it works perfectly. The rest of the cast are all a great addition to the movie. No bad words about anybody in this movie. It's beautifully shot, mesmerizing with the narrating voice, the twist is like I said a bit too obvious but it's still working. You have good movies that you will watch once, but this one is just above that and is one I would watch again in the future.
