Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • NBC would not lease out the actual "Late Night with David Letterman" (1982) footage where Harvey Pekar finally lashed out at David Letterman, so the scene had to be recreated with actors.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the real Harvey Pekar is recording his voice-over, someone fills his "orange soda" to the top of his glass. When he picks it up, there is less than half a glass of soda.
  • When Harvey Pekar first guest stars on "Late Night with David Letterman" (1982), Joyce is in the waiting room with a man with an alligator (Terrence Sullivan). This was originally intended to be a cameo by John Waters.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The opening of the movie is set in 1975. During the opening credits, there is a scene that has CSX freight cars in the background. The CSX corporations was formed in 1980, five years later.
