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 Flynn falls through the bridge, and the camera pans out, you can see the same pieces of the bridge fall more than once (look at the farthest right piece fall - it falls about 3 times). See more »

User Reviews

This is a truly great movie.
11 December 2004 | by (Kenmore, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a truly great movie. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes spoofs, and comedy. I loved the character development of Flynn, and Noah Wyle did a wonderful job portraying him. I also liked the way they made Nicole seem really snobby, but turned out to be really helpful. If you are looking for a good family movie you might want to try this one. This is one of my top 3 alltime favorite movies and even if it doesn't have real depth to it it's still a truly funny, great movie, and should be seen by all movie lovers. If you want a good way to spend an evening, this is a very good option, it has wit, daring, and a spastic librarian who has to hold his own against the bad guys. Truly inspiring.
