Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): Shortly before The Car rolls over to crash the two police cars, there is a shot from the backseat of one police car, behind the driver. The driver is a dummy, the head is just a simple ball with a hat on top, especially it has no ears nor hair.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): Just as the Car chases the marching band into the graveyard, two kids crouch behind a tombstone, which wiggles as if made from Styrofoam (which it probably is).
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): The dispatcher says the car has been spotted heading "north on Interstate 12". Even-numbered Interstate highways run east-west, and Interstate 12 is entirely within the state of Louisiana, running along the north side of Lake Ponchartrain.
  • An arcade video game machine called "Smashing Drive" features the car, painted as a New York taxi on a rampage in the city. The game's "attract mode" sequence begins with the car sitting on one of the stainless steel Deco eagles on the Chrysler Building, and then jumping off to the street below.
