Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • This was Warren Beatty's first film in six years, after his Oscar winning film Reds.
  • Despite the film's reputation as one of the biggest box office failures of all time, Ishtar did, in fact, hold the #1 box office position in its first week of release. However, in its second week, with the release of Beverly Hills Cop II, the film quickly dropped to fourth place.
  • Although the film had an overwhelmingly negative reception when released, it underwent three successful screenings with preview audiences. Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman and Charles Grodin have all defended the film's quality in subsequent years, blaming its bad reputation on reports of production and budgetary problems which had been leaked to the press by studio head David Puttnam who disliked Beatty and was on poor terms with Hoffman as well.
  • Stars Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty, both recent Oscar winners, were each paid $5 million, a sum that was considered impressive at that time and, in 2009, is still a considerable paycheck.
