Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Russell planned a re-release for 2004 due to the Iraq War. The film was to be shown alongside Soldiers Pay (2004) but Warner Brothers decided against it.
  • The role of Archie Gates was originally written for Clint Eastwood but Russell decided he wanted a younger actor. Clooney aggressively pursued the role but Russell wanted Nicolas Cage instead. But when Cage was cast in Bringing Out the Dead (1999), Russell settled for Clooney.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): During the scene where a cow is killed by a cluster bomb, the cow is sent flying into the air and comes down in pieces. This is not possible with this type of ordinance. Cluster bombs are designed to break up into hundreds of individual "bomb-lets," each with the approximate power of a fragmentation hand grenade, and disperse over a large area. The individual bomb-lets have a few ounces of explosive in them and are designed to cause wound injuries rather than catastrophic destruction. Any explosion powerful enough to lift a cow into the air and tear it apart would also kill the characters who where standing nearby.
  • The role of Major Archie Gates was offered to Nick Nolte, who turned it down, saying he was too old. Jeff Bridges wanted to play Gates, but was turned down as a result of the poor box office run of The Big Lebowski.
