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 known 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

When Judson starts introducing Flynn to the sacred objects in the repository, Flynn's tie is knotted so tight that it bunches up his collar. Two steps later - without any indication that he's touched his clothing - Flynn's tie is loosened and his top shirt button is unbuttoned. See more »

Quotes

Debra: What do you do?
Flynn Carsen: Actually... I'm a student.
Debra: You've been a college student your entire...?
Flynn Carsen: I like to learn. Is that a crime?
Debra: No.
Flynn Carsen: I mean, so what? I've spent most, if not all, of my adult life in school. Maybe I've missed out on some "extracurricular" activities. That doesn't make me a freak, does it?
Debra: Of course not. I understand.
Flynn Carsen: You do?
Debra: Sure. You like to learn.
Flynn Carsen: Yes!

MaYbE I'm just a NeRd
22 December 2004 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

I personally loved this movie, It was fun. Finally a movie where the smart guy/nerd is glorified and isn't the villain. It had hilarious moments and I guess I'm just weird that I like it so much. I mean, people take it way too seriously, People, ITS NOT THAT SERIOUS! It's just a good adventure and the characters are fun and funny. The jokes are laughable, as they are supposed to be, unlike in so many movies I've seen where the jokes are unbelievably corny. Obviously, these people know what they're doing.(referring to directors and screenplay writers, et...) I loved the main character, Flynn, he was a riot, and so was very lovable. There were many parts of this movie that I loved and will always love. Anyway like I said, maybe I'm just a nerd.
