Corrected entry: The swords used by the knights are referred to as "broadswords" by characters in the movie. This term, however, was not used in the Middle Ages, a knight's weapon was simply referred to as an "arming sword". To use "broadsword" for a knight's sword is a 19th century invention, to distinguish them from smaller weapons.


Correction: They wouldn't have used 'arming sword' - they would have used words you or I would not have been able to understand. They use modern English so audiences can understand the film, and that is not an error. See similar corrections for Braveheart and Troy.

Continuity mistake: When Dennis is sitting in his boat talking with Griselda and Mr.Fishfinger he gets covered in rubbish. Although he wipes most of it off there is spaghetti left on his hat and jacket. In the wide shots, though, he is clean. (00:08:20)
