Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Freddy Riedenschneider says, "I litigate. I don't capitulate." The term "litigation" refers to a civil lawsuit. A criminal defense attorney does not litigate.
  • Joel Coen and Ethan Coen came up with the story while working on The Hudsucker Proxy. While filming the scene in the barbershop, the Coens saw a prop poster of 1940s haircuts and began developing a story about the barber who cut the hair in the poster.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the fight between Ed and Dave, Ed is thrown to the ground. To his right is a three-prong electrical socket, not introduced until much later.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Big Dave Brewster could not have gone to Case Western for a year. Case and Western Reserve did not merge until 1967
