Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In Sean's study, Will has his foot on the desk, but in the overhead shots he has his calf on the desk.
  • Roger Ebert asked in his "Movie Answer Man" column for suggestions as to who Will's brothers Marky, Ricky, Danny, Terry, Mikey, Davey, Timmy, Tommy, Joey, Robby, Johnny, and Brian were named after. Gina Dante of Minneapolis suggested that they were "directors whom Ben Affleck and Matt Damon would like to work with": Marc Rocco, Richard Attenborough, Danny Boyle, Terry Gilliam, Mikael Salomon, David Fincher, Tim Burton, Tom Hanks, Joel Schumacher, Robert Redford, John Woo, and Brian De Palma.
  • The very last line in the credits is "In Memory Of Allen Ginsberg & William S. Burroughs".
  • The script was originally developed by Castle Rock, the production company of Rob Reiner. When they didn't know what to do with it, filmmaker Kevin Smith took the script to Miramax. It became the highest grossing film in Miramax history until Chicago topped it.
