Other mistake: When the general passes the clipboard to the President to sign the nuclear release, the clipboard is actually upside-down. (00:55:55)
Revealing mistake: After the Martian who is dressed up as a women spits a finger in the fish tank a bit of the Martian's mask near its mouth is torn away. As she chews the nitrogen gum the human lips move but her real teeth don't. (01:04:20)
Trivia: The look of the movie is based on a collection of Topps trading cards.
Trivia: This is just something interesting - during the movie there are 2 aliens that are referred to as "Ben Der" and "Dun Dat" (been there, done that).
Trivia: The U.S military was asked at first to supply things such as ships, planes, and soldiers for the movie, so it can be authentic in a military sense. The military did not cooperate, however, because it made it seem as though Slim Whitman (whose song "Indian Love Call" finally defeated the aliens) would be more effective at fighting alien invaders than the United States military.
Art Land: I'd been thinkin' about Mars when there wasn't no Mars.
Richie Norris: Should I go get Grandma?
Richie's Dad: Oh forget Grandma! She's halfway into space already.
Taffy Dale: Guess it wasn't the dove.
Question: I heard this movie was a remake or a compilation of different themes used in 1950's mars B-movie remakes. What are some of the themes of the movies that this movie takes? Such as, In Mars Attacks they use the music to kill the aliens I believe is a rip from a 50's movie where they use sound waves to down martian spaceships. What movie was that?
