When Robin Williams moons the TV screen after the editorial, he is really mooning the TV. When Robin Williams sits down you can see he is not wearing underwear. See more »
When Sonny's car goes over the embankment the car is buried up to the doors in snow. A few minutes later the snow is flat - packed down by dog sleds and vehicles. The car is able to be freed and driven away. Unfortunately, the spinning tires are screeching like they are on dry pavement. Tires on snow and ice do not make this sound in real life. See more »
The Survivors is not the Best film of any of the casts' careers, but I found it pretty funny for the most part. Matthau's sticks to his grouchy old man routine and Williams to his manic everyman. The rest of the cast is OK. There is a little social commentary which is a little dated by now, but still. I liked it.
