Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Early in the film there are shots of "aliens not welcome here" signs around the city. One sign begins "These public premises an the amenities thereof..." - the "d" on "and" is missing.
  • In South Africa, the last name "van der Merwe" really is a fairly common surname (it, like many Afrikaans names, comes from the Dutch), but it would also be recognizable to most South Africans as the common name in a whole genre of jokes about stupid, bumbling, oblivious, or incompetent Afrikaaners. The fact that the Wikus van der Merwe character is (at least at the beginning of the film) an ineffectual, catastrophically clueless bureaucrat is immediately communicated by the screenwriters' decision to give him that particular name.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): RPG-7 shot which Kobus fire at lifting module can't move that slow; also it won't explode until contacting something with its front part, which didn't occur as Wikus just tried to throw it.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Wikus is taken into hospital for the first time and sees his hand turning into a "prawn's arm", he freaks out and the doctor puts a mask over his mouth and nose to administer some oxygen and holds it with his hand. When the shot changes there is a rubber band holding the mask to his head, but there is no way that the doctor could have managed to put it that way.
