Trivia Two different ragdoll cats, Magic and Orlando, were used in the movie. After a casting, Magic was selected due to his adherence, curiousness and never could be startled away. Orlando was a stand-in used for the scenes when required to stay put or be carried for long periods of time. Both cats were born in Poland. See more »
Goofs During the movie we get to see all popular models of Saab and Volvo. However the registration plates on some cars are too modern. One example is the light blue Volvo 142/144 that has a sign issued more than 20 years after the car was made. See more »
