Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the scene where Kirk says "I think I might be nobody," you can see Sandusky in the background lower his gun at this quote, then in the next shot, he lowers his gun again.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After Tugg Speedman's performance of 'Simple Jack', he is in a room cleaning off his makeup. When he wipes his face with a wet towel, most of the white is gone. However, when he turns around to meet little Half-Squat, it has reappeared.
  • Mos Def was offered the role of Alpa Chino, but turned it down.
  • Originally Nick Nolte's reveal during the video teleconference scene was intended to be an homage to Robert Shaw's character of Quint in Jaws. Ben Stiller toned it down because he felt there were too many homages in the film at that point.
