Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Miss Prism opens Dr. Chasuble's portfolio, the second drawing from the top is partially folded, but when she examines it in the next shot, the drawing is neat and unbent in the stack.
  • While Reese Witherspoon was learning her English accent for this movie, her husband, Ryan Phillippe was learning a Scottish accent for his role in Gosford Park. The person who picked it up fastest? Their daughter Ava.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): During Cecily and Gwendolyn's outdoor tea, Cecily cuts a large slice of cake that is served to Gwendolyn and placed on the corner of the tea table. After the cake is cut, the scene clearly cuts ahead to the end of the tea. In the time that elapsed during this part of the scene, a servant easily could have come by and taken the plate explaining why in subsequent shots with both Cecily and Gwendolyn and later, when Jack and Algernon take the ladies' seats at the tea table, the cake and its plate are missing.
  • The premiere Broadway production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" opened at the Lyceum Theater (New York City) on April 22, 1895, ran for 12 performances and has been revived in New York City eight times since as of 2010.
