Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • 'Rob Lowe (I)' only worked a day.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The lobbyist for the alcohol industry, Polly Bailey, is labeled on the cover of the liquor trade magazine "Daily Drinker" as "Mother Burgandy" - a common misspelling of "burgundy".
  • Finistirre, the last name of William H. Macy's character, is an alternate spelling of the word "finisterre", which was in ancient times the word used to denominate the edge of the flat earth. It means literally "end (finis) of the earth (terre)", or "land's end." It is also the name of the most western point of the Spanish region known as "Galicia", as well as the name of a French "département" located at the most western point of the country. In the french case though, spelling is "Finistère" but it has the same "end of land" meaning. The character's first name is "Ortolan," which could refer either to Ortolan Restaurant in Los Angeles or a mythical race of elephantine creatures in the Star Wars saga whose most recognizable member is the character "Max Rebo."
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): During the MoD squad meeting, when Polly takes a bite of the pie she messes the cheese up, but in the next scene it's fine. Also, when Nick sees the cheese on top of the pie it is not melted, but when he pauses to think and stares at the pie, the cheese is clearly melted around the edges.
