Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Strictly speaking, John Nash (V) didn't win the Nobel Prize because there isn't a prize for Economics or Mathematics. (Alfred Nobel who willed his estate to the Nobel foundation saw no need for a prize in mathematics.) In 1969 the Swedish Central Bank established the "The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel". This prize is presented in the same ceremony and is therefore often mistaken for a proper Nobel Prize. It is even often referred to as the "Nobel Prize in Economics" in daily conversation; the fictional character of President Jed Bartlet on The West Wing was also presented as a Nobel Prize winner (for economics) with the show also not making the real-world distinctions.
  • SPOILER: In one scene, the imaginary roommate's niece runs through a field of birds. None of the birds move, proving she doesn't exist.
  • Screenwriter Akiva Goldsman had plenty of personal experience to draw on in developing the story; he had previously worked as a child care counselor and had developed a method for training mental health workers, and had also grown up in a house where his parents had established a group home for emotionally disturbed children.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The way John Nash (V) is holding his briefcase changes between shots during the pen presentation.
