Goodfellas

Trivia: The slap Paulie gives Henry when he leaves prison was completely improvised. The surprised look on Ray Liotta's face is genuine.

Trivia: The movie shows that Henry Hill has two daughters, whereas, in real life, he has a son and a daughter, who are also in hiding from the mob and their father.

Trivia: Al Pacino was originally asked to play the role of Jimmy Conway but did not accept for fear of being typecast after portraying too many gangsters throughout his career. Ironically, later in 1990, he ended up playing a gangster, Big Boy Caprice, in "Dick Tracy."

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Lorraine Bracco points a revolver at Ray Liotta's head, after Ray Liotta turns the tables and now points the gun at Lorraine Bracco as he gets up and walks away you can see Ray Liotta steps on Lorraine Bracco's hand and she opens her mouth wide like shes screaming but it must have been cut from the audio, as Ray walks off camera his expression changes to show that he knew he had accidentally stepped on his co-workers hand.
