Trivia

Goofs

  • When Mars Sazerac is presenting Peter Pescadero with the grand prize the amount he states is different than what is printed. Sazerac says the prize is for $500 but the check actually reads $5000.
  • In the first shot when Tina is rolling around her bedroom floor trying to get out of the straitjacket (while her glasses are still on) her barrette is on the opposite side.
  • When Bob is turning the pages of Sazerac's enemies book he is turning them back in the long shot but in the close up when we see Diane Keaton's page he turns it forward to reveal his name.
  • The Festival of Magic poster outside the school changes design with the "Festival of Magic" text moving to the top from the bottom and then back again when Zeke and Jimmy, Jr. leave.
  • In the long shots of Sazerac talking to the crowd onstage, Tracy Schwartz can be seen facing the back rather than facing the stage.
  • Andrés du Bouchet's first name is spelled without the acute accent on the "e" on the end credits.
  • It is a myth that one has to dislocate their shoulders in order to escape from a straitjacket. The trick is to gain slack while the straitjacket is being applied.[2]
