Features a very realistic Voodoo ceremony, complete with candles, fire, trance music, drummers, chants and trance dancers. In reality, this religion is (or was) called Hoodoo, which is the name given in USA to the religion originating in Haiti, or Vaudou in French. Voodoo is a derivative from the French, originally strictly used in Hollywood productions, but nowadays has long made its way into mainstream culture to replace the word "Hoodoo". See more
When David Banner & Renee Dubois open their office to find a crowd gawking at the Voodoo artifacts left hanging on their doorway, the same frame showing the extras is reversed to make it appear that the crowd is larger than it actually is, showing the same extras first at right and then at left. This is repeated at least three times back and forth easily revealing this production money-saving goof. See more
You see, Renée ain't no Mambo. Renée is a medicine doctor. She's got less power in her whole clinic than the Babalao has in his little finger.
