Free Guy

Plot hole: When Guy kisses her, she questions how he did it - stating no "kiss" function existed in the game. However, later on after the reboot she proceeds to kiss him (rather than him kiss her).

Suggested correction: As one of the principal developers of the simulation engine, Millie recognizes that Guy is a non-player character (NPC) who merely obeys a loop of coded actions, and he's supposedly incapable of acting outside of his code. So, she means that NPCs can't just arbitrarily kiss players. Players can do whatever they want, but NPCs are mindless robots. At that point, however, she doesn't realise that Guy's Artificial Intelligence has evolved to independent self-awareness, allowing him to act outside of his code.

Key's actually says "There isn't a button for that" when Millie brings it up. There would be no way for her to initiate, as her in game actions would be limited to the controls offered.

By the time Millie kisses Guy, we know that the Free City simulation engine was already undergoing Artificial Intelligence evolution, essentially rewriting its own code, allowing Guy (and other NPCs) to achieve independent self-awareness. It follows that Free City was probably rewriting its player code, as well, making all sorts of new and startling functions possible for players and NPCs alike.

Factual error: The plot's main conceit hinges upon coders, the art department, and the user-end network team constantly working live at the same time in the same room, as well as developers actively writing code, rebooting servers, and chasing players in-game to get rid of problematic players. No real game company could operate this way. Game content patches wouldn't change the network experience, and in-game aesthetic changes like the ones they make in seconds would require weeks if not months of development.

Continuity mistake: Near the start during the 1st bank raid, his hands change position while lying down on the ground talking to the guard.

Trivia: In one scene, a power-up is just barely visible in the background. It's a bottle marked "Subtle Product Placement." If you look very closely, you can actually see that it's a bottle of Aviation American Gin. Star Ryan Reynolds partially owns a stake in that brand of gin, and has made numerous humorous videos online promoting it.

Trivia: Ryan Reynolds wanted Chris Evans to have a brief cameo in the film. Evans was incredibly busy working on another project, and told the crew that while he definitely wanted to do the cameo... he literally had to be in-and-out of set in about ten minutes time because his schedule was so tightly packed. The crew did everything to prepare for Evans arrival, and once Evans got out of wardrobe/makeup and onto set, they were able to get his scene filmed and get him out in only seven minutes.

More quotes from Free Guy

Answer: The movie was completely finished over a year ago. It was the pandemic that delayed it. So it was the finished product that was released.

Question: Why does the tank point at Guy when he asks for a cappuccino? The cop says, "someone's getting shot" as if the game will kill him if he doesn't follow his code, but we know that's not the case. (00:09:12)

Answer: The cops are there to enforce the rules of the game and Guy's not following them. In GTA-type games like Free City, when you get Wanted, every cop in the game knows right where you are. This is playing on that.
