Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • For more than fifty years (prior to 1985), the parishes of Louisiana did not use dimes at all; they used quarters, nickels, and pennies but no dimes. This practice continues today so when the death row inmate who called refers to himself as "Billy the Kid" offers prison trustee, Toot, a nickel for the moon pie, it is an actual true factoid specific to the area.
  • Doug Hutchison (Percy) was given, according to the director, the squeakiest shoes he'd ever heard. He thought this was the greatest bit of fate, and a "perfectly wonderful, annoying character trait" that he kept it in the movie, and you can hear sometimes how loud his shoes are.
  • According to the novel by 'Stephen King', Percy Wetmore is supposed to be 21. During production, Doug Hutchison (Percy) was 39 years old. He told the director he was in his early/mid 30s. When he went to audition for The Salton Sea, the director told him he was 'too young,' resulting in Hutchison having to show him his drivers license which proved his age.
  • Early in the film Paul yells at Percy to "Get the fuck off my block", but it was later re-dubbed to "Get the hell off my block".
