Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • George Clooney had a relative in Kentucky (his native state) record himself reading the script, so that Clooney could work on his accent. When Clooney received the recording, he discovered that his relative had in fact removed all of the curse words and replaced them with something else.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Ulysses goes into the department store to confront his wife, you see her fiancé walking around upstairs. It cuts away and when it cuts back, he walks the same place he walked before.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Everett and gang enter the radio station, he asks, "Who's the honcho around here?" The word "honcho" is taken from the Japanese 'Hancho', which means "group leader," and did not become an English expression until GI's brought it back from the Pacific war. Its first recorded use in the U.S. is in 1947, many years after this movie's timeframe.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Pappy is talking with his employees after Big Dan, Everett, and Delmar leave the restaurant, the orange on his plate changes from shot to shot; it goes from being cut cleanly on the top to being cut serrated-style.
