Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Matthew says that they shaved his left leg in case they couldn't find a vein. In subsequent shots, it has clearly not been shaved.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Sister Helen is being pulled over for speeding, the camera shows the view through the rear view mirror. In this shot, the cop car behind her is driving on the left side of the road, with the police officer driving in the right front seat, on a straight road with a solid center line. The next shot show's both cars on the right side of the road, with the police officer sitting in the left front seat on a curvy road with a dashed center line.
  • The film was very much a family affair for Tim Robbins. Aside from directing his long term companion Susan Sarandon to an Oscar, he also cast his father, Gil Robbins (Bishop Norwich), mother Mary Robbins (aide to the governor), sister Adele Robbins (nurse), and son Jack Henry Robbins (opossum kid) and Miles Robbins (boy in church). His brother, David Robbins, composed the soundtrack.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): When Sister Helen and Mr. Delacroix are first speaking in his living room, a crew member wanders into the background outside the window and then quickly runs out.
