Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Michael Caine agreed to play in this movie only if Craig Armstrong (II) did the music, which was what eventually happened.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Alden shows Phuong a picture of Fanueuil Hall in Boston and says, "This is Fanway Hall". Sounds like Fenway Hall. Bostonians say 'Fanyel" hall, or less often, 'Fan-you-well' hall. Fenway Park is where the Red Sox play, so named because is is near the Fens, a marshy area off the Charles river. Fenway has nothing to do with Faneuil.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Fowler constantly mispronounces Phuong's name (as "phong" instead of "phuong"), even though he had been partnered to her for two years. Phuong corrected Pyle when he made the same mistake.
  • When Thomas Fowler first introduces Phuong to Alden Pyle, the song "J'ai Deux Amours" (Literally, "I Have Two Loves") can be heard being performed in the background.
