Suggested correction: Your lips don't move much saying that line, especially if you have a fixed smile. His lips definitely move. He is definitely saying the line.

Suggested correction: Having watched it carefully, I can't see any film crew in shot at any point in this sequence.

Peter Harrison

Audio problem: Right after the Thermians become sad over the mention of Gilligan's Island, Alexander rolls his eyes and starts to turn away, while you can hear him saying "Oh brother." However his lips are not moving for this indicating the line was dubbed in.

Suggested correction: It's quite obviously Laredo/Tommy's voice saying "Oh, brother" off camera. Not Alan Rickman. Their voices don't sound anything alike. You can see for yourself at this clip at about 1:03: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26tWWopd_3g.

Suggested correction: It is not Alexander who says it, but most likely Guy.

Continuity mistake: When they're flying down to the planet, Guy is upset because he doesn't have a last name. He asks Jason, "What's my last name?" and Jason doesn't know. In the very next scene, Jason addresses Guy by his last name, Fleegman. (00:55:00)

Suggested correction: Guy is saying that his character doesn't have a last name, because his character dies off quickly and has no need for one, so he thinks he's in actual danger.

Question: In the beginning of the movie, Dane attempts to flee from the convention but is stopped by Nesmith, who says "the show must go on". Dane looks furiously at Nesmith for a second and then makes his appearance on stage after all. Can anybody explain to me why Nesmith's line makes Dane change his mind?

Answer: Dane is a classically trained stage actor from England. On the stage they have the saying "The show must go on". i.e. hundreds of people have payed for tickets to see the play, so the thespians go on stage to do the best job they can. Nesmith is reminding Dane of this as Dane considers it a stage tradition that he doesn't want to break.
