Trivia

There's a double-barreled New Wave homage in one scene, where the Widow Hippolyte character is seen loading a shop van with advertising on the side for "Les parapluies de Cousin Jacques," with a street address in Cherbourg. The shop information refers to director Jacques Demy, playing on the title of "Les parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg);" the actress loading the van is Agnès Varda, Demy's widow.

Goofs

When Regina is in the elevator after "Joshua" saves her, he sends her up in the elevator, but when we see Joshua scuffling with the attacker from Regina's point of view, the lift is going down, we know this because we see his shoes disappear from the top of the screen, if she was going up, we would see his head or shoes disappear from the bottom of the screen.

What a Ridiculous Remake of 'Charade' !
26 December 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Cinema is art, therefore is not to be copied. Nobody copies a Picasso or a successful romance, for example. No matter how similar it could be, it would be a copy of an artistic piece without any value. Therefore, remakes of great movies are totally unnecessary. The original 'Charade' was not a masterpiece, but a great movie, with a charming central pair (Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant) and funny situations and dialogues. But this 'The Truth About Charlie' is really ridiculous. Beginning with the choice of the lead actress and actor. Thandie Newton and Mark Wahlberg performing the roles of Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant respectively is outrageous. The modifications in the original plot made the delight of 'Charade' be lost. Do not waste your time with this film, rent or buy the original one. By the way, I have a friend who knows by heart many dialogues of the original 'Charade'. Jonathan Demme has not probably paid attention on the wonderful original text, otherwise he would try at least to reproduce some of them. My vote is four.
