Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): After the Ghost's first interview with Lang, he asks an assistant to "transcribe" a minidisc, not a floppy disk as previously assumed.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): When Adam Lang emerges from the limousine to address the reporters, Amelia Bly crosses behind him and stands to the left. In the next shot, which shows the remainder of the press conference on television, Amelia is standing to the right of Adam. However the news camera's POV is different from that of the initial shot of the characters taking up position and Bly's positioning is not inconsistent.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): Several curse words are dubbed over with British words, though the actors are clearly saying something else (notably Lang saying "sod" dubbed in place of the "f-word"). (This only occurs in the U.S. PG-13 version of the film. Versions in Canada and the UK have no overdubbing and so the said dialog matches the mouth movements.)
  • Although the studio advised the stars to avoid commenting directly on the arrest of Roman Polanski, Pierce Brosnan said during a promotional interview, "It's sad for all concerned, but it's also heightened the movie. The movie's in the can, he's in the can."
