    Plot Outline: Two psychotic young men take a family hostage in their cabin.
    Plot: In this English-language remake of a deconstruction in the way violence is portrayed in the media, a family settles into its vacation home, which happens to be the next stop for a pair of young, articulate, white-gloved serial killers on an excursion through the neighborhood.

    Crazy Credits: We know about 2 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    Outtakes play through the closing credits.

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Audio/visual unsynchronized: SPOILER: The mobile phone the couple attempt to use to call the Police after their sons shooting is a Nokia. When switched on, a Nokia start up tone is used. However, the key tone is that of a Motorola (the tone is heard when they press the Call button after 911).

    Trivia: There are 3 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Director Michael Haneke also directed the Austrian original: Funny Games (1997).
    • The production crew used the blueprints from the 1997 original. The set of the house in the 2007 American remake has the same proportions as that of the 1997 set.
    • The film is a shot-by-shot remake of the original.
