Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • After Kira has told Sonny that she is one of the Greek muses, she starts to say, "My real name is Terp - ", but Sonny shushes her, and we never get to hear her real name. However, since she is there to help him open a dance club and she is obviously a dancer herself, it is likely that she was about to say that her name was Terpsichore, since Terpsichore was the Greek muse of dance.
  • The last musical that Hollywood hoofer Gene Kelly ever made.
  • Directorial debut of a theatrical feature for producer-director Robert Greenwald.
  • According to the special features on a recently released DVD, the cartoon sequence was added because the filmmakers were required to include an extra song written for the movie. Having a cartoon made for that song was easier than trying to make it fit into the movie.
