Gremlins

Audio problem: When Kate is behind the bar, and the Gremlins are drinking beer and smoking, Kate says "Just don't bite me." Her mouth doesn't move at all when this is heard. (01:11:00)

Audio problem: When Billy is playing on the keyboard with Gizmo, the second key we see him hit should have been a higher tone, not lower, as it's toward the right end of the keyboard.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When the professor is trying to find the gremlin, he is in the room with the movie playing. The projector that is playing the movie is actually moving backwards. (00:44:35 - 00:47:35)

Randall Peltzer: Well, that's the story. So if your air conditioner goes on the fritz. Or your washing machine blows up. Or your video recorder conks out; before you call the repairman, turn on all the lights, check all the closets and cupboards, look under all the beds. Cause you never can tell. There just might be a gremlin in your house.

More quotes from Gremlins

Trivia: At the beginning of the film, when Billy is late for work, you see two films playing at the movie theater: "A Boy's Life" and "Watch the Skies." The former was the original title for "E.T." and the latter was the original title for a proposed sequel to "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." Two films directed by executive producer Steven Spielberg. (00:08:30)

More trivia for Gremlins

Question: I have the original VHS version and I've noticed that some cuss words have dubbed over on the DVD. Yet The original VHS is still rated PG any reason why, other than the fact to make it more of a family film.

Answer: The original film was released before the PG-13 rating existed (it was one of the films responsible for its creation). Producers decided to remove some of the language and violence for the DVD release to avoid complaints about the PG rating.
