• One family. Infinite degrees of separation.


• Nicole Kidman, Jack Black, & Jennifer Jason Leigh moved in together during filming because they wanted to perfect their roles as a dysfunctional family.
• For the sequence where Margot climbs the tree, Nicole Kidman refused to be replaced by a stuntwoman or use a ladder. She even made it to the top of the tree before the camera was ready to film.
