The super Cleveland Heep finds a woman swimming in the swimming pool of the condominium during the night; he slips, hits his head on the floor and faints in the water, and she rescues him. He discloses that she is a "Narf" called Story, a character of bedtime stories, that is chased by a "Scrunt" and she needs to return to her Blue World with an eagle. Cleveland convinces the tenants to help and protect Story.
Time is running out for a happy ending.

- Harry Farber: This is like a moment from a horror movie.
Harry Farber: Hello? Is the bathroom on this level working? A dog inside the building! Go! Shoo! Why you're not a dog at all. My god, this is like a moment from a horror movie. This is precisely the moment where the mutation or beast will attempt to kill an unlikable side character. But, in stories where there has been no prior cursing, violence, nudity or death, such as in a family film, the unlikable character will escape his encounter, and be referenced later in the story, having learned valuable lessons. He may even be given a humorous moment to allow the audience to feel good about him. This is where I turn to run. You will leap for me, I will shut the door, and you will land a fraction of a second too late. [Turns to run, is killed by wolf]
Mrs. Bubchik: He's [Mr. Bubchik] Mrs. Bubchik: probably looking in the mirror. He has this growth on his ass! Don't tell him I told ya.
Young-Soon Choi: Mr. Heep, my mom told me more of the story before she threw a cushion at me.
Vick: Am I gonna die, because I wrote this? Story: Yes.
- This movie was originally set up at Disney, but M. Night Shyamalan departed from the studio over "creative differences", and brought it to Warner Brothers. Disney has produced Shyamalan's previous four films, and the studio's subsidiary Miramax Films also produced Wide Awake (1998) which Shyamalan wrote and directed. This departure became the subject of the book "The Man Who Heard Voices: Or, How M. Night Shyamalan Risked His Career on a Fairy Tale".
Some of this film was shot in Levittown, Pennsylvania at a Jacobson logistics warehouse site. (M. Night Shyamalan has committed to using films sites in PA.) The set, built on the warehouse site, includes an apartment complex and a half city block of row houses. Occasional footage was shot inside the overflow area of the warehouse. Most of the filming was completed after Jacobson work hours.
The plot of the movie is based on a bedtime story M. Night Shyamalan wrote for his kids.
Kevin Costner was considered for the role of Heep. However, Paul Giamatti accepted the part before they contacted Costner (Giamatti was really the first option).
M. Night Shyamalan was in talks with Philip Seymour Hoffman for an unspecified role. Hoffman, despite the fact that he "loved the script, liked the role" had scheduling conflicts.
