This is the second movie in which Kevin Kline played the President of the United States and the man impersonating the President. The first was Dave (1993). See more »
The movie is set in 1869 when the transcontinental railroad was completed. But on the train, Artemis is seen next to a cylinder phonograph with a horn for sound. Edison didn't invent the phonograph until 1877 and it was not marketed to the public until the late 1880s. The type shown looks like the type sold in the 1890s. See more »
Dr. Arliss Loveless:
Why y'all look like you've seen a ghost? It's me, dear friends - alive and kicking! Well, alive, anyway. We may have lost the war, but heaven knows we haven't lost our sense of humor! No, not even when we've lost a lung, a spleen, a bladder, two legs, thirty-five feet of small intestine, and our ability to reproduce - all in the name of the South! - do we EVER LOSE OUR SENSE OF HUMOR!

I had read something on Internet Movie Data Base saying that WWW was "not as bad as the reviews" ..... well, all through the movie, I kept waiting for it to get "not as bad as the reviews" and I never found it ..... it is one of the few movies I felt like leaving, and felt like the price of admission during a matinee was too much .....
For me.... I just cannot suspend disbelief to the point of seeing stuff that is impossible to be built today with todays technologies being built like they were nothing in 1869 ..... it is like throwing out every law of physics and science ..... but then pasting a few things in to try and make it look real .....
There was just so many impossible things done in that movie that are just impossible ... I like Science-fiction .... heck, I like fantasy movies.... You can invent all kinds of unrealistic stuff and I'll suspend disbelief forever... and like the made up stuff and enjoy the movie .....
But this was absurd, and they tried to pass it off as feasible .... (which is my only real problem with the movie) ......
For the record, I am a Will Smith fan, and I liked Men In Black (some connection with MiB and WWW) ...... but in MiB, the technologies came from elsewhere (and were just as ridiculous) .... but I can buy it ..... unlike this movie trying to pass of things that are totally ludicrous.
