Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the final shot, when Jocelyn embraces William, the back of her dress is seen. The overlap portion of a center back zipper is clearly visible.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): As William is testing his new armor for the first time, he gets a beam thrown to his chest. In this stunt a stand-in is used. You can see the color of his hair change from blond to brown.
  • The expression "it's sixes and sevens" (which now means a state of confusion), is used in its original gambling context (Simon the Summoner to Geoffrey Chaucer) in a gag to say that this was how the modern expression came into existence. In fact, the phrase was coined about 1495, and in a rather different context. Two London guilds were quarreling over the order of precedence among London guilds, each claiming their right to be sixth in rank. Eventually the Lord Mayor decided that they should take turns, one year the Merchant Taylors would be sixth and the Skinners seventh, and the next year they would switch places - a rule which is observed even now. This was considered complex enough, hence the expression "in sixes and sevens", meaning in utter confusion.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The mirror reflection of Jocelyn's face is obviously composited onto the holy water font at the church and doesn't look very much like a reflection in water at all.
