Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Will and Marcus say numerous times that the phrase "No man is an island" was written by Jon Bon Jovi. It was actually written by John Dunne.
  • In the novel, the music that Will introduces Marcus to - and so in turn bonds with Ellie over - is not rap, but the band Nirvana. The book is actually set during the 1993-1994 period, and the story climaxes with the kids learning of and being affected by Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain's 4/5/94 suicide (which within the context of the story has additional significance for Marcus). The title of the story is itself a pun on the Nirvana song "About A Girl".
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Fiona is trying to make cereal for breakfast, the editing makes the scene appear continuous, but she is holding the cereal box and then the milk in subsequent shots without having time to swap.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): As Rachel is cleaning up for Will and Marcus, she picks up a wine glass about half full, but when she sets it down, it is empty.
