The Life of David Gale

Factual error: The movie leaves the impression that Huntsville, Texas and Austin, Texas are just a short distance apart. In reality, they are at least three hours apart.

Continuity mistake: When Jamie tells David that he has something important to ask him, the quilt is pulled up to Jaime's chest, but when the camera angle changes to a close-up, the quilt is now pulled down to his stomach. (00:25:21)

Continuity mistake: When Bitsey is checking the videotapes at Dusty's house, the last tape, the one with the red label, falls over when she grabs the second last. As she puts the second last tape in the VCR the last tape is seen standing again. She then searches for any more tapes, but never checks the last tape.

Trivia: Bitsey and the intern are staying at the Randolph Motel. Randolph is the last name of the writer of the movie.

Ross: As the poets have mournfully sung/ death takes the innocent young/ the screamingly funny, / the rolling in money, / and those who are very well hung.

Zack: 73% of all serial killers vote Republican.

David Gale: Death is a gift.

More quotes from The Life of David Gale

Question: What was the purpose of Berlin? What she planted to stage the rape? Or, was she really trying to get revenge? What did the postcard mean at the end of the movie in the money case?

Chosen answer: I believe that she was a plot device to make sure David Gale had nothing to lose by the end of the movie. She then may have felt guilty about casual sex, and tried to get back at Gale. She then later felt guilty about the whole charade, and wrote him a postcard admitting what she had done. Then the postcard is given to the ex-wife to show he was innocent of rape.

Richard Welty

Question: Where did the money come from that was sent to David Gale's wife?

Answer: The money was from the magazine that paid Gale for his story.
