Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Lopez pulls over in the tunnel after spotting Ayers, his car blocks the right lane. In subsequent shots, cars are seen in the background cruising through that very same lane, one even merges into it, even though Lopez's car is blocking it just a few yards ahead.
  • As of April 2009, Nathaniel Ayers "has a girlfriend and is doing reasonably well" according to Steve Lopez (V). He is also taught himself to play the flute.
  • Originally planned for a November 2008 release date, the film was held back due to Paramount's tightening of the number of films it releases per year and released late April of 2009. The trailer continued to run in theaters with November as the release date.
  • Several members of the Lamp Community, a housing and care center for the mentally ill, appeared in the film and attended the Los Angeles premiere and after party. Nathaniel Ayers is a resident and beneficiary of Lamp.
