Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Josh is telling Susan about his electronic comic idea, the sleeve on her left shoulder keeps changing. One shot it's off the shoulder, then it's back on the shoulder, then it's off the shoulder again. This happens several times.
  • Tom Hanks was the first choice to play Josh Baskin but was unavailable due to scheduling conflicts with the films Dragnet and Punchline. Robert De Niro was then offered the lead role, and was rejected because his salary demand ($6 million) was too high. Tom Hanks then became available and accepted the lead role for $2 million. David Moscow was originally cast not as young Josh, but as Billy, since he didn't look like Robert De Niro. When Tom Hanks was given the role, David Moscow was recast as young Josh.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Josh's mom is freaking out when Old Josh walks in, she is speaking (screaming) but her mouth does not move.
  • David Moscow wore colored contact lenses to match the eye color of Tom Hanks.
