Kicking and Screaming

Kicking and Screaming (2005)

Audio problem: In the scene where Phil starts to cry when he's kissing his wife, you can hear him say "I'm in way over my head" but his lips don't move at all.

Continuity mistake: Phil sustains injuries to his face more than once in the movie. Every time the injuries disappear by the next scene. In one case the injury switches from the right side of his face to the left side between shots in the same scene.

Factual error: Soccer officials are supposed to wear a color that is different than the teams he is officiating. The ref wears a blue shirt when officiating the tigers (who are blue) and then a black shirt when officiating the Gladiators (who are in black). The referee would have worn either his primary yellow for these or red, but never blue or black.

Question: In the scene where Will Ferrell is talking to his wife he says "They were running around like whirling derbishes, and I don't even know what that is" or something to that effect. What is a derbish and why does it whirl?

Chosen answer: An actual dervish (not derbish) is a member of any of various Muslim ascetic orders, some of which perform whirling dances and vigorous chanting as acts of ecstatic devotion (hence the term "whirling dervish"), though in general 'a whirling dervish' is used for anyone who moves with an unfocused, almost frenzied energy.
