Continuity mistake: When Billy is holding logs still for George to chop, the second log he puts on the stump is stripped of any bark. But when George swings down to chop it, the log is suddenly covered in bark. (00:50:45)

Continuity mistake: When Kathy and George kiss on the bed, and in following shots, the mug on the desk to the viewers right of the bed constantly rotates itself, evident by the mug handle. (00:04:20)

Trivia: George Lutz denounced this remake, stating that it was complete drivel.

George: Houses don't kill poeple. People kill people.

Father Callaway: Your house frightens me, Mrs. Lutz.

Question: Probably it's for dramatic impact, but it seemed strange that Ryan Reynolds' character would rush out to the boathouse on seeing the red balloon. It would have made more sense to check her room first, but he leaves (and even dives into the icy lake) without telling anyone. If it was out and out panic, wouldn't he wake his wife? Apart from as a plot device, any ideas why?

Chosen answer: He sees the balloon, and instantly assumes his step-daughter is inside the boat house, and hence is in danger of slipping and drowning (or perhaps already in such a situation). He rushes straight out to get there as quickly as possible. Checking her room, or telling his wife would take up time, not to mention he is probably running on adrenaline.
