Did You Know?


The film is based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Michael Zadoorian.


Will Spencer: So you know what happened, when was it, last year? I opened their bedroom door and she was on the bed and he was kneeling in front of her and... I can't even say it.
Jane Spencer: Dad was muff diving? Yodelling in the canyon?
Will Spencer: I wanted to vomit.
Jane Spencer: Why? I hope it ...


Various locales throughout Key West and the Florida Keys are used as locations along the Atlantic coastal states (i.e., Key West's Higgs Beach is a stand-in for a locale outside the state). Key West's South Roosevelt Boulevard and its adjacent Smathers Beach are also used as a locale somewhere on the Florida mainland. In addition, numerous scenes that are supposed to take place in Key West actually were filmed in Bahia Honda State Park, Big Pine Key, and other areas in the Lower Keys (i.e, Fisherman's Hospital - which is prominently shown as being in Key West - is located nearly 30 miles away in Big Pine Key). The RV park also shown is quite clearly at Bahia Honda State Park as the closest RV park to Key West - Boyd's RV Campground - has no water access, though on screen their RV is parked right at the water's edge. A scene where the leads get on a trolley ride through Key West also clearly begins at the Welcome Center at Bahia Honda State Park, roughly 37 miles away from Key West proper, though in the next shot, the trolley is in Key West. (Electrically-powered and propane-powered vehicles such as tourist trolleys would never be allowed to go over the Florida Keys' many bridges and highways, nor would anyone wish to do so, as said vehicles have little in the way of shock absorption.)
