Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Holds record of Longest Time to Reach #1 as of 2009. The movie was released on 15 July 1988 in the U.S., and reached #1 on 16 September 1988.
  • When Otto leaves Archie's home, he says to Archie's wife Wendy that they would all speak German without the USA. He leaves the house while singing the first verse of the anthem: "Deutschland über alles". The German dubbed version has an altered dialog, he says that they'd all eat sauerkraut and listen to military marches, then he imitates some military marches instead of singing the anthem, as the first verse is considered too nationalist and generally not sung in public.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Otto shoots at Ken in the steam roller a central support bar for the steam roller's canopy blocks the shot from hitting Ken. Then when subsequent images of the steam roller are shown there is no central support bar.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): When Wanda is talking to George in prison, you can see crew equipment bobbing up and down over their heads.
