Trivia: When the movers arrive and open the van you can see some graffiti on the bottom right corner of the door saying "StopMoRulz". Quite correct. (00:02:50)

Trivia: Their work completed, the movers leave and one of them receives a small tip from Coraline's mother. Watch the face on the one-dollar bill: it is not that of George Washington, but Henry Selick, director of the film. (00:03:15)

Coraline (2009)

Trivia: In the dream sequence at the end, when the ghost children (now golden angel-like figures) thank Coraline, watch the background - it is a nice visual compliment to Vincent Van Gogh, the great Dutch painter, whose masterpiece "Starry Night" inspired the swirly blue and yellow lights. What makes the compliment a bit quirky: Van Gogh painted "Starry Night" while he was a patient at the mental asylum in Saint Rémy, and he committed suicide 13 months after completing the painting.
