Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Jacques-Yves Cousteau's boat, the Calypso, was an old British minesweeper. The Belafonte was also an old minesweeper.
  • Writers Noah Baumbach and Wes Anderson named several of the places and crew members in the film spontaneously after things and people they saw around them at the Italian restaurant where they held many of their meetings about the film. Pescespada Island, for instance, was named for one of the dishes on the menu. Some of the characters' names are named after waiters and patrons at the restaurant.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the team is in the submarine towards the end of the movie Steve's hands are on the steering wheel. As the neon fish swim towards the sub (from the crew perspective) you can see the steering wheel without any hands on it, but when the jump to Steve, he hands remain on the wheel.
  • Gwyneth Paltrow was originally set to play Jane Winslett-Richardson, but couldn't because of schedule conflicts. Nicole Kidman expressed interest and Wes Anderson hired her. Kidman was forced to bow out due to other commitments, and Julianne Moore requested the role. However, it eventually went to Cate Blanchett. Anderson admitted the character name was inspired by actress Kate Winslet. Blanchett played the part while actually pregnant.
