Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • In preparation for the role, Tom Hanks met David Moscow and studied videotapes of him to see how he behaved and spoke. Tom Hanks also felt that David Moscow should just be himself so that the Josh Baskin character persona would be that of a real 12-year-old.
  • Robert Loggia's character is based on then FAO Schwartz CEO Peter Harris. The character is a youthful, albeit goofy, retailer, true to Harris' own charisma.
  • Debra Winger was original considered for the Susan Lawrence role but could not take the part because she was pregnant at the time. She recommended Elizabeth Perkins.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): A red sticker appears on Josh's door in the hotel which wasn't there earlier.
