Other mistake: The soup that Remy starts with is a red tomato soup, but after he "fixes" it, it becomes a white soup. It is impossible to change 10 Gallons of red soup to 10 gallons of white soup with 1 quart of cream, 2 quarts of oil and a handful of herbs. (00:23:30 - 00:24:40)
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when the crazy lady goes after Remy and Emile with the shotgun, she fires three shots at them: two in the wall and one towards the ceiling when Emile is crossing the banister. After Emile crosses the banister, look at the ceiling around the chandelier in the next shot. There are already 4 shotgun holes in the ceiling.
Emile: W-w-wait. You read?
Remy: Well, not excessively.
Emile: Oh, man. Does dad know?
Remy: You could fill a book - a lot of books - with things Dad doesn't know. And they have. Which is why I read. Which is also our secret.
Emile: I don't like secrets. All this cooking and-and reading and TV-watching, while we read and cook. It's like you're involving me in crime and I let you. Why do I let you?
Trivia: The wine that Anton Ego requests at dinner is Cheval Blanc, one of the best wines in the world. It is one of only two to receive the highest rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé (A) status in the Classification of Saint-Émilion wine of 1955, along with Château Ausone.
