Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (boom mic visible): In the barbershop when Agent Anderson is beating up Deputy Pell, the boom mic is clearly visible.
  • One of Stephen Tobolowsky's heroes is his late aunt, Hermine Tobolowsky, known as the "mother of the Texas Equal Rights Amendment".
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): While interrogating Lester in a moving car, the background scenery suddenly indicates that the car is going backwards. This is evident as Lester looks over his shoulder and out the rear window.
  • During filming of rednecks-vs-reporters scenes on a bridge over the Big Black River near Bovina, Mississippi, two extras were nearly killed by a train when they ventured from a holding area onto a tall concrete-arch railroad bridge. They narrowly escaped injury by huddling on a tiny pedestal on the bridge's edge.
