Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • John Cusack actually took some marionette-puppeteering lessons in order to prepare for the film.
  • In the scene in the Merton-Flemmer building lobby, when Craig browses the floor listings to find LesterCorp, the camera scrolls past the listing "Eric Zumbrunnen, CPA". Eric Zumbrunnen is the film's editor.
  • In the first draft of the script, Lester and his friends weren't using Malkovich's portal as a means for extending their lives, but in a plot to take over the world in the name of Satan. Satan was the mysterious 'Flemmer' that the Merton-Flemmer building was half named after.
  • John Malkovich's real middle name is Gavin - in the movie, his character's middle name is Horatio.
