In the opening Tyler scene, Rob’s tumble thru the window was his idea. They liked how it humanized him and made it a little comical.
•They knew, bc of Rob’s rep with teens, the line “I can do teens” was going to be a laugh.
•Rob would pick up the physical traits of the actors he was working with and Allen felt it was a delightful quality. Allen pointed out when Emily bites her lip at the carnival on their date and Rob does the same. When she tells him she’s 21.
•Then Emily does a shoulder thing after he gives her the dessert first in his apartment and Rob does a shoulder thing too.
•When Emily had to throw up, Rob almost laughs. He was amused by her getting sick. LOL
•Allen loved the sex scene. Felt it was tender and erotic and he wanted them to have sex a 3rd time but time, money, and MPAA prevented it. Allen felt them making love, then waking to make love again showed the vigors of youth. He thought Rob and Emily looked beautiful in the scene.
•Allen was impressed with Rob weeping after he gets attacked by Ally’s dad. He liked how Rob broke down.
There’s so much more too…if you haven’t already, you MUST listen to the director commentary from Remember Me. It’s insightful of Rob’s acting style, his overall personality, & the characterization of Tyler and company.
