Trivia

The two lions seen on either side of the steps down from the elevator to the secret library are not duplicates of the two lions, popularly know as Patience and Fortitude, outside the New York Public Library. Rather they are copies of the lions on the monument to Pope Clement VII in St. Peter's Basilica , Rome. They were sculpted by Antonio Canova between 1783 and 1792. See more »

Goofs

At the end, when Nicole tells Flynn of the Deadly Scorpion League, he wonders about the "insect names" for the bad-guy groups. Scorpions are arachnids, not insects. The first bad guys were the Serpent Brotherhood, also not insects. See more »

I'm A NeRd 2!
2 November 2005 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

My kids and I LOVED this movie! It took me a few minutes to catch on to the tongue-in-cheek/spoof/parody character of this one. Once you get it, though, the sometimes less-than-great special effects and sometimes corny plot elements fall into place beautifully. And yes, there actually WAS a plot, complete with interesting characters, and a STELLAR cast. In addition to seeing Noah Wyle's funny side, you get to see comedy at its best with Bob Newhart, Jane Curtin, and Olympia Dukakis in roles that MUST have been written just for them. The chemistry between the Librarian and the bodyguard is terrific. Watch this one with an open mind and you won't be disappointed. HOPING FOR A SEQUEL!!!!
