In order to raise the tuition to send her young son to private school, a mom starts an unusual business -- a biohazard removal/crime scene clean-up service -- with her unreliable sister.
A kiss scene was filmed between Norah (Emily Blunt) and Lynn (Mary Lynn Rajskub) but cut from the finished film.
Talking Deer Head:
Attention all fellow deer. If you find deer feed in the middle of the forest, be a bit suspicious.
When Norah chases after the kitten, there is a small table and a cat statue on the porch. Later, when the house is burning at night, the table and statue are gone. A subsequent scene of the porch in flames has the table and cat statue back again.
Amy Adams brief topless scene has been censored in the US home video releases. Those frames are zoomed in slightly to omit the nudity where as the framing is left intact on releases outside of the US.
