Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The character Henry Sherman was named after Wes Anderson's landlord.
  • DIRTRADE(Wes Anderson): [peanuts]: According to Anderson on the DVD commentary track, Buckley the beagle is a tribute to Snoopy. The Vince Guaraldi Trio song "Christmastime is Here" from A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) (TV) recurs as Margo's theme.
  • Owen and Luke Wilson's mother, Laura Wilson, worked closely with photographer Richard Avedon. Laura documented Avedon's "In the American West" series project. The photo clipping of Owen Wilsons character, sent to Anjelica Hustons character, copies a famous portrait from the Avedon series, of a young man holding a disemboweled snake. The Wilson brothers would definitely be aware of their mother's project, and this would be somewhat of an inside family joke.
  • Brian Tenenbaum, who plays one of the paramedics, was a college friend of Wes Anderson and brothers Owen Wilson and Luke Wilson at the University of Texas. His name was used for the film and family because, says Anderson, "I just like the name." Brian Tenenbaum's sister is named Margot.
