Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The movie was originally set to debut the same day the real Adventureland park reopens for business every year: 27 March.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Joel asserts that the famous aphorism "Fortune favors the bold" was written by the Roman poet Virgil (70-19 BC), but in fact, it was written by the Roman playwright Terence (185-159 BC) in his play Phormio. The phrase is often associated with Virgil's epic poem, the Aeneid, appearing in book 10 line 284, in a slightly different form. The overeducated Joel should know better.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Frigo is seen shooting off fireworks, Brennan is wearing New Balance 574s, a type of shoe that would not come out till 2004.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): President Reagan is seen on television delivering a speech. This particular speech was given on August 12, 1987, but in the film it occurs before July 4th.
