Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In a scene set in 1966, Petey Greene repeatedly calls Dewey Hughes "Mr. Tibbs" as a disparaging comparison to Sidney Poitier's buttoned-down character in the film In the Heat of the Night; however, that film was not released until August 1967. However, the reference could be to the novel by John Ball, which was released in 1965. In another scene set in the same period, Greene makes a reference to Muhammad Ali being stripped of his boxing title due to refusing induction into the army; however, Ali's title was not revoked until April 1967.
  • An earlier version of this film was in development in June 2000. It was to be titled "Petey Greene's Washington" and star Martin Lawrence. Greene's biographer Lurma Rackley was to write the script but contract negotiations broke down.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): During his broadcast on April 4, 1968, Petye refers to James Brown as "The Godfather of Soul", a term not given to him until the early 1970s.
  • Terrence Howard was briefly attached to star as Petey Greene. He recommended Taraji P. Henson for the part of Vernell while the two were filming Hustle & Flow.
