Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • When Seth Rogen's character talks about his camp experience at a camp called "Miriam", this is a reference to the camp that Rogen went to growing up. This camp is a Jewish camp located in Vancouver affiliated to the youth movement Habonim Dror.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the bar celebration scene, Sarah Silverman's drink appears in and out of her hand between shots.
  • Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler were old roommates. The footage seen in the opening sequence was recorded back then. Sandler would regularly make prank phone calls and one day Apatow decided to start filming them.
  • SPOILER: When Ira is playing the mix he made for George, George objects to the first song because Bob Marley died of cancer, which reminds George of his own medical condition. Actually, all three of the songs that Ira plays have a strong connection to a famous man who died of cancer: in addition to the Bob Marley song, he plays "(I've Had) The Time of My Life", which is most famous for its prominent inclusion in the movie Dirty Dancing (that movie's star, Patrick Swayze, was undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer while this movie was being filmed, and he died in September 2009), and next, he plays "Keep Me In Your Heart" by Warren Zevon, who died of lung cancer in 2003.
