Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Chili meets Steve Tyler after the basketball match, Tyler can be seen mouthing other actors' lines.
  • Even though the film clearly deviates from the novel, there were some moments in the film which serves as a nod to the source novel: 1) The burn-out photo that Tiffany has (later picked up by Chili) is a nod to the fact that in the novel, the Russians operate a one-hour photo shop instead of the pawn shop. 2) The confrontation between DubMDs and the Russians in Nick's office is a nod to the intended shoot-out between the two. In the novel, neither parties appear in the second half. 3) When Raji tries to setup Sin LaSalle against Nick, Raji deliberately spell Carr's last name as CAR. In the novel, Nick's full last name is Carcaterra.
  • In the beginning of the film, Chili mentions how a film needs to only use the "F" word more than once in order to get an R rating. He then uses the "F" word - the only use of it in the film - and thus, it gets a PG-13 rating.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Linda and Steven Tyler appear on stage for their song. In the first shot she's behind him to his right. In the next shot she's moved behind him to his left, may be a flip.
