Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The movie poster is an homage to a poster for the classic Warner Bros. film Casablanca, as is the closing scene at the airport.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Throughout the film, people constantly call George Clooney's character Geismar, with an "A". This is also how Tully spells it on his card when he meets Jake at the airport, and it is also how it is spelled in the book. Yet when Jake spells his own name to a soldier at Postdam, he spells it Geismer, with an "E".
  • Once or twice in the film adverts for Persil washing powder are seen, before Lena gets her "Persilschien".
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): SPOILER: After the slug is removed from Tully, it's said to be a ".32". In fact, the Russian Nagant pistol used to kill him was 7.62 mm, which is much closer to .30 caliber than .32
