Trivia

In one scene, the Adolf Hitler character appears in a traditional Native American headdress. Hitler was a fan of German writer Karl May, whose most famous books were supposed autobiographical tales set in the American west featuring an Apache man named Winnetou. May's books fostered a fascination in Germany for Native Americans. See more »

Goofs

The first time we see an American soldier waving a flag from a balcony, it is one with 50 stars instead of 48. (A common mistake in WW2 films). They later rectify this error and show an American in a Jeep waving a correct 48 star flag. See more »

Taika Waititi is one of the best directors in Hollywood right now.
5 February 2020 | by AzanspySee all my reviews

JoJo Rabbit is a brilliant and brave attempt by Taika Waititi. This movie is crafted by pure creativity. 'An anti hate satire' is the tagline of the movie and the movie shows the Nazi era difficulties through humour and mind blowing dialogue (most from Scarlett Johansson). This was the year that I realised ScaJoh is an excellent actress. All of the cast was excellent including Roman Griffin Davies, Thomasin McKenzie (who both have a bright future), Taika Waititi, Rebel Wilson and an excellent Sam Rockwell. The fat boy also deserves mentioned. JoJo Rabbit deserves acclaim and more people should see it. I don't know why most of the critics hated it but screw them. Jojo Rabbit deserved that Oscar nod for Best Picture and even though there's no hope for winning it, I'm pretty sure the movie has inspired so much hearts and this movie will discussed in the future.
