Paul Dano revealed in an interview that he wanted to be in the movie after hearing a one-sentence synopsis from directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

The red VW Cabriolet seen near the end of the film has the California license plate 1E49950. This is a commercial plate and would not be on a regular passenger vehicle. Additionally, a commercial plate beginning with "1E" would be from the mid to late 1970's and would be on a blue plate, not a modern white plate. See more »
Because I'm just a scared, ugly, useless person.
But maybe everyone's a little bit ugly. Maybe we're all just dying sacks of shit, and maybe all it'll take is one person to just be okay with that, and then the whole world will be dancing and singing and farting, and everyone will feel a little bit less alone.
Manny, you have no idea how nice that sounds.

Do not fool yourselves, there is no deep meaning in this movie
I went to see Swiss Army Man excited about a potentially unique movie. Unfortunately the movie does not live up to its hype. This story just feels like an attempt to have people find depth and symbolism where there is none. The continuous use of fart noises and the constant corpse boners are a slap in the face for anyone who wants to claim to have found a meaning to the story. It truly feels like the movie goes out of its way to add the most absurd elements into the mix just to show how people can make up all these "findings". Like painting cans of soup to prove a point, this movie shows how nowadays you can get away with anything as long as there are people who believe their artistic and intellectual "abilities" can justify a complete and utterly disastrous movie. There has to be a reason why the last line of the movie is "what the f**k?" and I believe that reason is just to slap your face one last time before exiting the theater.
