Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the early scenes in which Max is outside playing in the snow there are leaves on the trees and roses in bloom. You can't see his breath in the air and it doesn't fog the window. If you look closely in some shots you can see a light fog in the air created by the cold manufactured snow on a warm day.
  • Spike Jonze was approached by Maurice Sendak and was asked to take on the film adaptation. A movie had been on the burner since the early 90s, and Mr. Sendak had not been able to find anyone fitting to take it on.
  • The studio decided not to position the film as a kids movie and spent 70% of the media for it on broad based and adult driven buys.
  • Though their names are not mentioned in the book, Maurice Sendak named the Wild Things after his aunts and uncles: Bernard, Tzippeh, Aaron, Moishe, etc. In the film they have totally different names.
