When Samuel Goudsmit is talking to Moe Berg about Werner Heisenberg, he says that his parents were deported from Holland to a concentration camp. He appealed to Heisenberg for help but got no reply. He says he doesn't know if his parents are dead are alive. The movie did not answer this question, but unfortunately his parents were indeed murdered in the concentration camp. See more »
The scoreboard at Fenway Park shows white numbers for the scores of completed innings and a yellow number for score of an inning in progress. The announcer tells us its the top of the third with two outs. However, the scoreboard shows a blank for the top of the third inning when it should be showing a yellow "0". See more »

You're an unusual man Mr. Berg, you speak 7 languages, you're an athlete, you're more than up to the physical requirements of the job...

It reminds me of the Steven Spielberg, Tom hanks collaboration, Bridge of Spies, but did not hit me as hard.
World war 2 was the type of war that all good Americans wanted to be a part of, so no surprise that a Major baseball player (our fav pastime) wanted to get in on the action.
Moe Berg was an over the hill baseball player who happen to have went to college and became a master of a lot of languages. Right there, he sounds like the type of spy they make TV shows out of, which is why I think this movie is so good.
Paul Rudd was good at playing this type of spy too. I felt it to be believable in the situation. Possible not that important, but I like it none the less. Not exactly James Bond but Rudd used his overall charming and humorous persona to be the leading man this movie needs.
