Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Jeff Daniels was scheduled to film The Five People You Meet in Heaven (2004) (TV) when The Squid and the Whale was set to start production. The beard Jeff Daniels has in The Five People You Meet In Heaven is there only because he felt his character in The Squid and the Whale would have had a beard.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The ambulance that takes Bernard away is painted FDNY red. EMS was not merged into the fire department until the '90s, and prior to that ambulances were painted in the EMS colors: orange, blue and white.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When ambulance arrives for Bernard, it is clearly daytime. When he is placed inside and it departs, it is night.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Frank Berkman complains that the writing desk his father gives him isn't suitable because it's a "lefty" desk. However, Frank later plays ping-pong holding the paddle in his left hand and spears his fork with his left hand indicating that he is, in fact, a lefty.
