Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The three women who can't speak English sit in the back of the bus, one behind Irv, and the two others in the seat behind her. But in one shot, when Georgia is about to show what the Oracle in Delphi was like etc., the seat where the two women were sitting is empty, later, they are there again.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): There are many scenes where you can see clearly they were filmed in Spain, not in Greece. Most noticeable, the hotel they stay at the night before going to the beach is the HOTEL MIRAMAR ("sea view" in Spanish). Also the phone in the room is Spanish, some of the machines used in a close-by job-site belong to a Spanish rental company.
  • The song Georgia sings on the beach is "Never on Sunday", the only Greek Oscar winning song, from Pote tin Kyriaki (1960).
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): In one scene at the motel where Georgia asks the clerk to send a letter for her, the clerk drinks ice-coffee with a straw from a glass that is about half full. Despite of this, whenever he takes a sip, the sound heard is a gurgling one, which only occurs when one drinks the last bit from the glass.
