Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Dewey gives Petey the station phone number on a Post-It, which hadn't yet been invented in the late 1960s.
  • 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.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): James Brown played a hugely important concert the day after Dr. King's assassination. It was broadcast live on local TV to help keep people off the streets. But the concert, and the broadcast, were both in Boston. Why Petey Greene would have been a part of that is mystifying.
  • 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.
