Trivia

Director Sacha Gervasi once conducted a lengthy interview with Hervé Villechaize just prior to the latter's death. He found a fellow admirer in Peter Dinklage, and they worked together on a screenplay for several years before HBO greenlit the movie, with Dinklage starring and Gervasi directing. See more »

Goofs

"Bittersweet Symphony" plays as Danny quits his job at the end of the movie. It may seem like a goof, since the scene is set in 1993 and the song was released in 1997, but it's actually not. The song does not play as within the story; it plays as a soundtrack over the end scene. Thus, there is no conflict within the events of the film. See more »
