Reindeer Games

Visible crew/equipment: When the car is sitting in the back of the trailer there is a cable visible connected to the front of the car. In the next scene the cable is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Monster is reading the love letter to Rudy in the trailer of the semi, when Monster opens it up initially, the letter is folded in fourths (halves down the middles), when they come back to him in the shot, the letter is folder into a tri-fold (like a normal letter would be folded).

Continuity mistake: Watch for the part where Gary Sinise and Charlize Theron are in the pool. (All the attention would be focused on her when she removes her top.) But watch when she flings the top to her right, it lands so nicely on the hand rail. As she moves towards Gary in a shot you will see the top lying on the deck of the pool.

Trivia: It's interesting to note that Isaac Hayes has a very minor role in the movie as the guy who notices the roaches in the food in prison. Kelso from That 70's Show is also in the movie as the guy Rudy swaps clothes with to use him as a decoy.


Rudy Duncan: You're sending me into an Indian casino dressed as a cowboy, thought this through entirely?
Pug: It was either that or a ballerina.

Gabriel Mercer: I read your letters, convict. Don't play no reindeer games with me.

Ashley Mercer: When I get in there you better be wearing nothing but a candy cane.

Chosen answer: Originally from the line in the Christmas carol "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer," it has come to mean both (a) any activity from which one is intentionally excluded and (b) tricks undertaken with the point of irritating or harassing the subject - as in: "Oh, they want to play reindeer games with me, do they? Well, I'll show them."
