Corrected entry: For one of his wishes Elliot wishes that he knew "everything about everything" and that he had a longer penis. When the wish is granted he doesn't know that he's gay. If he knew everything then he would have known that he was gay.
Corrected entry: About 1/3 of the way through, in the scene where Elliot is Jefe and the servant asks him if he wants breakfast, he says, "I'm sorry I don't speak Spanish." He realizes that he just spoken Spanish and he rolls his eyes up in his head. As he does this the brown contact lenses that he is wearing roll up a little and you can see his blue eyes underneath.quay
Corrected entry: When Elliot becomes the super-intelligent author and arrives at the party, everyone there knows him, and knows everything about him, his life, his work, and his personality. Now, he doesn't know he is gay - that's the whole premise of the scene - but surely everyone else does? He is living with his gay lover! How could his friends and sycophants not know that? Why, then, does the hostess - a women who knows him very well - insist on pushing a woman onto him?
Corrected entry: When Elliot is a Colombian drug lord, he is talking in Spanish. When he first finds this out he says lots of phrases including "I like it a lot" but he is really saying "a lot like".
Corrected entry: When Elliot is the Colombian drug dealer when he goes in to see Alison to accuse her of her affair she throws her hairbrush at him. When the hairbrush hits the wall there is the sound of glass breaking yet the brush wasn't made of glass and she didn't hit a mirror or a window.
Corrected entry: After the sensitive guy scene, Elliot magically appears in the fountain. If you look at his trousers, you can see where the water is splashed up from him walking into the water before shooting the scene. (00:44:50)
Corrected entry: During the "basketball" wish we see Elliot walking down a corridor onto the court. Because he was digitally put in to increase his height, if you look closely you can see that someone who runs past him actually passes through Elliot's right arm. (00:48:50)
Corrected entry: When Elliot is Lincoln and he's about to get shot, the killer appears right after they enter the theater, barely giving him time to find the beeper. Then he soundly announces himself before killing the President, amid a silent crowd. In reality, Lincoln was shot towards the end of the play, quietly, after one of the funniest lines, and when everyone was laughing loudly. The assassin chose that moment in hopes that the sound of the laughter would mask the sound of his gunshot.
Corrected entry: Whilst I don't have a copy of the devil's contract, didn't Elliot make the wish for the Big Mac and Coke BEFORE he signed the contract?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the devil is changing meters and Elliot falls from above, he lands and dents a blue car but after he gets up and starts walking the car is yellow and stays that way.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the line scores from the basketball game are posted, Elliott scored 104 points and had 32 assists. Yet, the total score was only 135 for his team. 32 assists would mean at least 64 more points.
Corrected entry: It may have been an effort not to overuse a prop, but to return from every wish Elliot had to press 666 into the pager. However, at the end of the gay author wish, he did not use the pager at all. He merely sat down on the bed.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Liz Hurley and Brendan Fraser first go to her office in the nightclub, she's wearing a red dress with a long slit up the front. As she walks around the desk to light a cigarette, just before she sits down, the slit opens all the way to the top and it appears Liz is not wearing underwear. This is best viewed on DVD. Black panties would be completely dark, red panties would match the dress and white would be much brighter than what we actually see.
