Continuity mistake: When the old man is talking to Chandler on the porch in Tibet, he picks his nose with his pinky finger. When it cuts back to him, he's picking with his index finger instead. (01:04:30)

More mistakes in The Golden Child


Trivia: When Chandler cracks a joke and upsets the dragon lady, she throws a fit. Doctor Hong calms her down in Chinese. He is saying, 'I am sorry, I am sorry, he has no manners.' (00:19:55)

Trivia: The Golden Child only speaks once in the entire film, saying, "I know". (01:23:05)

Trivia: The boy who is the Golden Child isn't really a boy at all. The director's cast a young girl named J.L. Reate to play the part. As for the lack of hair, no prosthetics or rubber used here, as they really did shave her head bald.

More quotes from The Golden Child


Question: Does anybody know why Sardo Numspa can't pronounce J's? Such as when he pronounces Chandler Jarell as Yarell. I've looked but can't seem to find any explanation.

Chosen answer: A lot of non english speaking countries have trouble pronouncing the letter J as it does not appear in their alphabet. It is a fairly recent addition to the english language too. Previously words that now start with a J would have began with an "I" sound as in "Iarell".
