Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Peter Stone, the writer of Charade (the basis for the movie) was so against this remake that in some releases of this movie his screenwriting credit was changed to Peter Joshua, the name of Cary Grant's character in Charade.
  • SPOILER: At the end of the film, as Madame du Lac brings Carson Dyle (Tim Robbins) his meal, Robbins stands at attention in the center of his cell in an imitation of the first appearance of Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs, The (1991), also directed by Jonathan Demme.
  • The part of Joshua Peters was originally intended for Will Smith, but due to extended production on Ali he was unable to meet start of filming on Charlie, so Demme had to move forward with Mark Wahlberg instead, losing the Thandie Newton/Will Smith "double-act" he had imagined watching the original movie Charade.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Regina is in the elevator after "Joshua" saves her, he sends her up in the elevator, but when we see Joshua scuffling with the attacker from Regina's point of view, the lift is going down, we know this because we see his shoes disappear from the top of the screen, if she was going up, we would see his head or shoes disappear from the bottom of the screen.
