Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Jodie Foster asked David Hyde Pierce to appear in the film after remembering him from college. They both attended Yale University.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Fred's backpack strap is down on his elbow when he's talking with Eddie in a longer shot (76:42-76:55), but is up on his shoulder in the immediately preceding and following close-ups of Fred.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): There are several errors in simple mathematics in the movie: Firstly, Damon "The Mathemagician" Wells correctly states that there are 25 228 800 minutes in 48 years (but 25,246,080 minutes if one counts the 12 leap-days that would occur in any span of 48 years that doesn't include a century year - only century years evenly divisible by 400, like 2000 but not 1900, are leap years), then says that this is 151 368 000 seconds. This is clearly wrong as 25 228 800 x 60 is 1 513 728 000 (more than 10 times as much). Furthermore, Fred says that the cube root of 3 796 466 is 156 although 156*156*156 is 3 796 416.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): (At 19:50) During a short part of Fred's piano piece, the notes he is hitting are obviously different to the ones that would be needed to make the sound. There is a part where the music is going down, but Fred's hands are moving up the keyboard.
