More Movie Taglines:
- Is he crazy?...or is he light years ahead of us?
- Change the way you look at the world.
- Prot: Every being in the universe knows right from wrong, Mark.
Prot: Let me tell you something, Mark. You humans, most of you, subscribe to this policy of an eye for an eye, a life for a life, which is known throughout the universe for its... stupidity.
Prot: Even your Buddha and your Christ had quite a different vision. But nobody's paid much attention to them, not even your Buddhists and your Christians.
Prot: I shall miss Earth, it has great potential.
Prot: Why is a soap bubble round? Because it is the most energy efficient configuration. Similarly, on your planet I look like you; on K-Pax I look like a K-PAXian.
- In the novel, one of Prot's favorite movies is Starman (1984).
The yearbook picture of Robert Porter is the actual picture of Kevin Spacey that appears in the 1977 Chatsworth High School yearbook.
The shades worn by Kevin Spacey were actually borrowed from U2's Bono who insisted that they be returned after the movie wrapped.
The original plan was that Will Smith was to play Prot and Kevin Spacey Dr. Mark Powell. When Smith pulled out of the role, Spacey decided to play Prot.
Throughout the movie sparkles of light can be seen in the background of almost all scenes, more accurately in the Power's office when he talks with Prot.
