Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The character of "Troy Gabel" is based on director Sean McGinly's experiences as road manager for The Amazing Kreskin, on which The Great Buck Howard is loosely based.
  • Real-life father and son Tom Hanks and Colin Hanks also play father and son in the movie.
  • The way Buck Howard finds his check at the end of his show is not the way The Amazing Kreskin (on whose career the movie is loosely based) used and still uses. The method was depicted differently probably for dramatic purposes.
  • Kevin Kline was originally going to play Buck Howard. Colin Hanks stated this in an interview at the premiere of Zathura: A Space Adventure.
