Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Otto chases Archie across the lawn there are multiple shadows indicating at least three spotlights.
  • Kevin Kline begged John Cleese to let Otto speak French instead of Italian when he wants to seduce Jamie Lee Curtis, since Kline speaks French. Cleese insisted that it had to be Italian. Kline started singing "Volare" because he ran out of Italian cheeses and other Italian phrases that he could ad lib, and was concerned that the director did not yell cut, since the producers did not own the rights to "Volare" when the scene was being filmed.
  • One of Otto's lines throughout the movie is "Don't call me stupid." In The Ladykillers, One Round didn't like to be called stupid either. Director Charles Crichton was a veteran of the Ealing films, most famously directing _The Lavender Hill Mob_ (1951).
  • Movie Goof (boom mic visible): Reflected in a mirror in an early scene in George's flat.
