Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): During the beginning of the song 'The Worst Pies in London,' the onions stuck on the knife Mrs. Lovett sticks in the counter are on the right side of the blade, facing away from the door (and the camera view). When she returns to the counter after having Sweeney take a seat, the onions are still on the same side of the blade, but they're facing to the right of the camera view and the amount is noticeably less.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Mrs. Lovett is singing "The Worst Pies In London" she is seen pressing on dough on her counter from behind her hand. She leans over to push on it, and the shot changes to in front of her, where she leans over to push on it again.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Sweeney is holding up his blade with blood on it, from some shots it has blood dripping down it, and in other shots it has blood smeared on it.
  • Tim Burton insisted that the film be bloody, as he felt stage versions of the play which cut back on the bloodshed robbed it of its power. For him, "everything is so internal with Sweeney that [the blood] is like his emotional release. It's more about catharsis than it is a literal thing."
