Did You Know?
- The scene where Richie (Luke Wilson) punches the glass in Mordecai's pen was unscripted, this was improvised by Wilson on the spot, and the scene quickly cuts to Richie and Ralleigh (Bill Murray) talking up close, this is because when Wilson punched the glass, co-writer and director Wes Anderson thought he seriously hurt himself.
- Royal's cigarette jumps from his hand to the ashtray repeatedly when he is having a conference with his three children.

- Eli: I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum, you know?
- Royal: Me too. Me too.
- Eli: It doesn't mean what it used to though, does it?
Atom User Reviews
Along with his writing partner, actor Owen Wilson, who also plays (hilariously) a supporting role in the film, Anderson reveals himself to be a highly original comic talent, impressive both for his strongly controlled deadpan style and for providing a sense of emotional heft lacking in most mainstream film comedies.
You'll laugh, you'll cry -- the year's best movie.
Exists on a knife edge between comedy and sadness. There are big laughs, and then quiet moments when we're touched.
