Corrected entry: During the car chase in Spain, one of the black cars gets rammed by the other black car and rolls down a hill. If you watch carefully, you can see a crew member move behind a tree to avoid being hit by the rolling car.

Correction: Throughout this car chase we see people on the hills harvesting crops. When the 2CV rolled down the hill previously it almost hit them. In the shot as the black car goes off the road you can see small groups of people on the hillside in the distance, then as the car rolls down the hill we actually see two people jump behind different trees. They are clearly supposed to be there.


Corrected entry: When Loraine tries to kiss Marty in the car and he pulls away, she asks if something is wrong, but instead of calling him "Calvin" (as in Calvin Klein) she calls him "Marty."

Correction: When Marty first met her, and she thought his name was Calvin Klein, he told her his friends called him Marty. She referred to him as Calvin and then Marty in the scene in Doc's garage, and she calls him Marty in their last scene before he goes back to 1985. Clearly she's getting used to calling him Marty.

Carry On Girls (1973)

Corrected entry: 1970s movie buffs should recognise the photographer in this film. It is Robin Askwith, who played Timmy Lea in those mildly naughty Confessions films.

Correction: He is credited in the cast list. Why is this trivia?

Minority Report (2002)

Corrected entry: Anderton approaches that old Doctor's house and the camera shows a KEEP OUT sign. However the sign is pointing towards the camera, the same way that Anderton's car is driving as he approaches, which means either the sign is the wrong way round or the Doctor doesn't want anyone ever to leave her property. (00:53:05)

Correction: We see the car drive up behind the sign and stop to the left of the sign, at the end of a footpath which runs past the sign up to the house. The sign is for people on the path, not the road.

Minority Report (2002)

Corrected entry: In the Lexus plant, Anderton kicks Whitworth who touches his hand to his mouth, and spits out blood. At the end of this scene, after Anderton drives out of the plant, the close-up of Whitworth shows a trail of dried blood coming out of his nose, not his mouth, which shows no sign of injury. (00:51:20 - 00:52:40)

Correction: There is never any sign of external injury to Danny's mouth - most likely it was his gums or teeth bleeding.


Corrected entry: At the beginning, the geologist parks in front of his office. The back of the station wagon is a good six feet left of the door. When the newspaper man walks across the street to visit, the back of the car is now even with the door. In a later scene when the other geologist arrives, the back of the car is once again about six feet from the door. (Video)

Johnny English (2003)

Corrected entry: In the film, when Johnny and Bough have to enter into Sauvage's skyscraper headquarters, there is an identical building next to it which is the city hospital. There is actually only one of these buildings, not two; it is One Canada Square, the tallest building in Britain.

Correction: Why is this a mistake? You're saying that the second building doesn't exist in real life? Well neither do Johnny or any of the other fictional characters.


Corrected entry: In the scene near the end of the film, when the hippy group are setting up in the farmers field next to the campsite, we are lead to believe that Sid & Bernie are waiting in their tent for their 10pm illicit meeting with Fanny & Babs. However, when all the campers are rushing to the gate to see what the commotion is, look carefully to the left of the group and you see Sid break away from the other campers and run into his tent, appearing at the front of the tent as if he's just heard all the noise.

Correction: This man is not Sid - he's just wearing similar clothes. When you see the group arriving at the gate into the farmer's field, this man is one of the first to get there.

Bottom (1991)

Carnival - S3-E6

Corrected entry: Ritchie and Eddie look out of their window at the riots and upon seeing blue lights (reflected on the wall, and on them) they say the Fire Brigade has arrived. In the UK, the Fire Brigade uses yellow and orange lights - the police use blue.

Correction: The fire brigade use blue lights. A Google image search for "Fire Engine" easily proves this.


Correction: All emergency vehicles, Police, Fire and Ambulance, in the UK use blue lights. Orange/Yellow is used by non-emergency vehicles, such as tow-trucks and other larger vehicles as a warning and doctors sometimes use green lights.

Corrected entry: Every time the same actor is playing two people (eg old Biff and young Biff), the line from the splitscreen is covered by something (the framing on the car, a pole).

Correction: This isn't trivia, it's just vague guesswork - when Marty picks up his 'son' behind the bar of the diner, or when old Marty and his two kids have pizza there is nothing to 'hide' the split, it just goes through the frame somewhere between them.
