In & Out (1997)

Corrected entry: Obviously done deliberately to show how ridiculous the Oscar-winning film is, but it's not likely that the last scene of a film would be show at an awards ceremony. It would be a bit of a spoiler.

Correction: Not really. For a film to be eligible for an Oscar nomination it has to have been on general release during the previous year. While it is true that some films get round this by being shown in December this is still three months prior to the ceremony.

Correction: When Christoph Waltz won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for "Inglourious Basterds," the clip from the film that was shown before the winner of the award was announced was the scene towards the end in which Hans Landa berates Aldo Raine for violating the terms of Landa's surrender, which would be a spoiler for anyone that hadn't seen the movie yet.

Corrected entry: There is a scene where Kevin Kline wakes up to his alarm in the morning - the clock says 6:30 PM.

Correction: He probably doesn't care if his clock says AM or PM, just the fact that it has the time.

Corrected entry: Is it really likely that in America in 1997 a teacher would be sacked for being gay? Surely the school could be sued for a fortune for unfair dismissal.

Correction: In Indiana, like in most states, workplace discrimination against gays is not illegal, according to the Indiana Code. In fact, type in the words "Cracker Barrel" and "Homosexual" into an internet search engine, and you'll find articles about how this restaurant chain fired gay employees in the 90's.

Continuity mistake: At the bachelor party, Kevin Kline has a cigar in his mouth. In one shot, it's whole, the next it's frayed, then in the NEXT, it's whole again.

More quotes from In & Out

Question: How did Cameron Drake know his former literature teacher Howard Brackett was gay, if nobody, not even Howard himself, knew it?

Answer: He made an assumption, based on certain things he'd observed, which turned out to be true. Other people in town must clearly have had similar ideas about Howard - witness all the Streisand albums at his bachelor party - but Cameron was probably just the first one to voice it aloud. And it was just as well for Howard, because it set him on the road to discovering the truth about himself.
