Bowfinger

Bowfinger (1999)

Factual error: Daisy is an out of work jobbing actress but she has a credit card that will take the cost of developing and printing the stock used to shoot a feature film in 35mm! Since they are watching colour rushes with synchronised sound on film (not cheaper video) they are not doing this on the cheap, either. Minimum cost, for a 90 minute feature, allowing four takes of each shot (which we see them do) - £41,000.00 or around US$85,000.00. That's some credit card. Anyone got the name of the issuing company?

Continuity mistake: As Daisy walks past Slater to see Bobby, her arms are at her sides. In the next shot, her hands are behind her back, clenched together.

Continuity mistake: Bowfinger takes off his fake ponytail and puts it in his left pocket but when he gives his business card to Jerry Renfro, he puts his hand in the right pocket and his ponytail is attached to the card.

Trivia: The character of Daisy (played by Heather Graham) is a thinly veiled jab at actress Anne Heche. Like Daisy, Anne is from Ohio, and, also like Daisy, Anne was briefly romantically involved with Steve Martin. Daisy's last lines about being involved with "the most powerful lesbian in Hollywood" are a reference to Anne's relationship at the time with Ellen DeGeneres.

Trivia: The plot was based on a real Russian filmmaker who secretly shot silent film star Mary Pickford while she was on vacation, and decided to base a film around her.

Question: Was the freeway scene in Bowfinger done with CGI or stunt drivers?

Chosen answer: It's done with CGI. Such freeway scenes are impossible to do with stunt drivers as you would need very complicated choreography to make it look believable.
