Did You Know?
- When showing his shelter for the first time there are 3 jars of Vegemite. This is an Australian yeast extract spread (like the UK's Marmite) much loved by some in Australia, but an acquired taste. It does have a very long shelf life and a little goes a long way, so could be a favourite of 'preppers'.
- When Ed (John Lithgow) meets Ronnie (Blythe Danner) in the supermarket, he is pushing a shopping cart; when arriving at the cashier desk, his cart becomes a shopping basket.

- Ed: What I'm saying is that it's more than what it seems, that's all. Much more.
- Ed: People don't know, because they're too busy with their game shows and football and silliness to take the time to look and read and figure it all out. Who is it that said, "Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see"? These are interesting times we're living in. That's another saying. Chinese. Actually, it's a curse. All you have to do is look and learn to connect the dots and get ready.

Quirky, tender and hopeful, “The Tomorrow Man” doesn’t necessarily depict a romance or relationship that everyone will immediately relate to, but Jones’ kindness and generosity as a storyteller encourages his audience to treat these characters empathetically.
The Tomorrow Man is not one of these high-dramas with something profound to say about human natures. It’s more a chance to watch two veteran actors in John Lithgow and Blythe Danner do what they spent their entire lives doing, and that’s act and act real damn good. They find that right balance between being normal and quirky to turn out a grounded performance.
There’s no denying that The Tomorrow Man has a knockout ending. But is it worth sitting through the mundane, relatively uneventful film that precedes it? Few will think so.
