Trivia

When Flynn and Nicole are walking through the Amazon Jungle, Flynn says something to Nicole, to which she replies "Be still my heart". ER: Be Still My Heart (2000) was the ER episode (season 6 episode 13) where the character played by Noah Wyle (who plays Flynn in the Librarian) is stabbed and almost dies. See more »

Goofs

When given his initial tour of the library, he encounters the sword that Arthur supposedly pulled from the stone. This sword was unnamed in the Arthurian Legends; however, in the film, they called it Excalibur. Excalibur was the name of the sword that Arthur later received from the Lady of the Lake. Furthermore, historians generally consider the swords separate. This is a common misconception. See more »

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.
