Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): School buses in the State of Florida do not have the name of Parishes on them. Florida has counties, all school buses in the state have the name of the county followed by district schools on them.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The car cannot be towed the way it was (with its rear wheels on the ground) since there was no way for them to release the hand-brake - the only possibility would be lifting the car and towing it on a platform truck.
  • Rock got the idea for this story from the 1984 Walter Mondale/Geraldine A. Ferraro ticket, in which the democrats thought that since they had no chance of winning against Ronald Reagan/George Bush, they might as well make a historic first so they can win support for the next election. So they ran Ferraro as the first ever woman vice president candidate for their party (and lost).
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Mays Gilliam is speaking at the "Pimps & Hoes" rally, you can see a "ho" in the background mouthing the words of his speech.
