Continuity mistake: When the Pope sneaks up behind Cardinal Rocco in the basement, in some shots the Cardinal has a drink in his right hand, in others he doesn't.

Audio problem: When Robbie is playing his guitar for the children early on in the film, the way he is playing simply wouldn't sound like what you hear - it's very badly dubbed.

Factual error: When Robbie is shot at in the "Popemobile", the bullet comes through the glass. The whole reason for having it is because it's bulletproof. They started using it after John Paul II was shot in the early 80's.

Trivia: The film had to be re-titled "The Pope Must Diet" in the US, in order not to offend sensitive American movie goers.
