Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Etheline Tennenbaum's character is loosely based on director Wes Anderson's own mother Ann Buroughs who, after divorcing his father, became an archaeologist. Burroughs' actual glasses are worn by Etheline.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): During the tennis match scene where Richie has a breakdown after Margot's wedding, the friend's box shows the entire Tenenbaum family with Chas, his wife, and his two very young children, Ari and Uzi. The match is set in the late 70's or early 80's, so if the children had already been born at the time, they would be in their early 20's in 2001, when the movie is actually set.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Royal and Pagoda first meet in front of the hot-dog stand, the blind man with a dog sitting on a bench behind them has sunglasses in one shot and no sunglasses in the next.
  • Danny Glover, Luke Wilson and Owen Wilson all turned down parts in Ocean's Eleven to appear in this film.
