Radio

Radio (2003)

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie when all the guys are in the barber shop, a man is wearing a John Deere hat with the modern logo, not the one from 1976.

Factual error: About fifteen minutes into the film, Ed Harris is in his home watching film from the previous game. In the background, but purposely featured to make comparisons between Harris' character and former Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant, is a commemorative Bear Bryant Coca-Cola bottle. The bottle commemorates the Bear's then-record 315th career victory as a head coach - a feat accomplished in 1981, five years AFTER the movie's 1976 setting.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Coach Jones finds Radio in the shed, he pulls out his knife to cut the tape. In the first shot you can see the blade out. As it switches shots you can see him pull out the blade, then it switches back to the previous shot of the blade already out.

Question: In the trailer for Radio (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0316465/trailers-screenplay-E18624-314), at the 1:23 point, some very distinctive music begins. This same music was used in one of the trailers for Forrest Gump. Is there a connection between the two?

Jeff Swanson

Chosen answer: Probably not. Many trailers re-use distinctive music from older trailers they are not related to.

New this month Question: Why were John and some of the other football players jealous of Radio? Why did they hate him in the first place?

New this month Answer: The players (and their fathers) were jealous of Radio because Coach Jones began spending a lot of time with him. The players believed Coach Jones was neglecting them. The players immediately disliked Radio from the start for two reasons: his refusal to return the lost ball in the beginning irritated them and his mental disability was a source of ridicule.
