Moonstruck (1987)

4 corrected entries

(7 votes)

Corrected entry: In the scene where the old grandfather is arriving home with the dogs, they all run up the stairs. One of the dogs misses one of the steps and smacks its head into a step before running on up.

Correction: This isn't trivia. Not only is it visible to anyone watching the film, it's very noticeable and unlikely anyone watching wouldn't see it.

Corrected entry: After mother has dinner with Perry and he walks her to her door, she remarks that it's chilly out. He closes the flap of his overcoat which hides his shirt and tie. As the shot goes back and forth between the two characters, the flap is sometimes open, sometimes closed.

Correction: There was wind blowing and he was moving his arms so it could easily open again.

Corrected entry: In a the bedroom sceen, the full moon casts a light that covers almost the entire headboard of Loretta's aunt and uncles' bed at first. But when the uncle gets up to look out the window and then looks back at the aunt in bed, the moonlight almost disappears from the headboard. When the uncle gets back in bed, the moonlight on the headboard reappears.

Correction: He's standing in front of the window blocking the light.

Corrected entry: The opera Ronny and Loretta attend is performed on November 15, yet the Met already has a Christmas tree displayed outside (too soon for this sort of decor). Secondly, when the family (minus Loretta) is gathered around the dinner table (the scene in which Rose threatens her father-in-law for feeding his dogs) you can see at least a dozen Christmas cards strung up behind the dining table. Doesn't seem logical that they would have received so many holiday cards in early November.

Correction: Pure conjecture.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Loretta goes to the brother's apartment, cooks him a rare steak & they are sitting at the table talking, the label on the bottle of J&B changes direction from shot to shot without being touched.

Ronny Cammareri: I ain't no freakin' monument to justice! I lost my hand! I lost my bride! Johnny has his hand! Johnny has his bride! You want me to take my heartache, put it away and forget?

Trivia: Cosmo's favorite song is "It Must Be Him" by Vikki Carr and it is heard in the film when he plays it on the phonograph. Later, Vikki Carr can be seen sitting in the row behind Cosmo and Mona at the Metropolitan opera house (she's the attractive red-haired lady who is smiling).
