Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The first time Bill Murray and Martin Landau have been in a film together since Ed Wood. And Caroline Thompson, the screenwriter on City of Ember regularly works with Tim Burton.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The scene where Doon is watching the boat follow its track, the boat automatically launches into the water. Yet when the three get into the boat, the boat does not launch until Doon pulls a lever.
  • The rat-like creature that chases the main characters is a giant version of the star nosed mole ("Condylura cristata"), native from Eastern Canada and North East United States. Given the fact these animals are blind, they use their nasal tentacles, known as Eimer's organ, to detect food. Although all European moles share this feature, the star nosed mole is the only animal with such an specialized one. Without counting its size in the movie (real animals are between 15 to 20 cm long) nothing else was changed.
  • There were so many sets built for the film that some of them wound up never being used. They do sometimes feature prominently in the background, like the hairdressers, but they play no part in the story.
