Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • In May 2004, it was first rumored that David Fincher was set to direct the movie. It was confirmed a year and a month after.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): SPOILER: The backwards clock has a smoothly sweeping second hand, indicating it is motor-driven. But it's an escapement mechanism; when it's shown in storage after being taken down, you can hear the ticking.
  • Movie Goof (plot holes): SPOILER: In a scene from the hospital, Ben's daughter sees all the postcards and realises that he sent her a birthday postcard in 1981 when she "was 13" and she quotes from it before it links to a corresponding event in India. This is followed by a scene where a 'younger' (looking), and thereby 'older', Ben visits them at the dance school and Daisy tells Ben that their daughter is now "12". This could only be possible if he visited the school before he went to India, but if Ben is 'younger' then it must be after he got back.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Theodore Roosevelt is shown at a dedication for a clock in New Orleans' Union Station in November 1918. This event is unlikely to have occurred; according to his NY Times obituary, he was hospitalized during that time for rheumatism before he died of a pulmonary embolism in January 1919.
