The Little Mermaid - Ariel's treasure cave includes the painting "Magdalene With the Smoking Flame" by 17th-century artist Georges de La Tour.

Wings of Desire -
Filming the actual Berlin Wall was prohibited, so a replica of the wall twice had to be built close to the original. The first fake wall warped in the rain because the contractor cheated the producers and built it from wood.

Clerks -
Randall and the Happy Scrappy Hero Pup lady are not actually in the room at the same time. Jeff Anderson refused to read the list of porno movies in front of her, and particularly in front of the child (although the reaction shots of the Happy Scrappy Hero Pup lady were obtained by reading the list to her).

FernGully: The Last Rainforest
In Spain it was dubbed into Spanish entirely by the comedian 'Angel Garó' , a single-handed feat that earned him entry to the Guinness Book of Records

Grindhouse - Rose McGowan is germaphobic, and had to have the stripper pole sanitized before doing her go-go dance routine.

The Harvest - There is no trivia for 'The Harvest'

The Jerk - Bill Murray filmed a cameo that was deleted. On the 15 December 1979 broadcast of "Saturday Night Live", Murray jokingly reviewed 'The Jerk', saying: "I was in the movie but cut out of it. That doesn't influence my opinion. The movie is a dog. There's something missing. I don't know who it is, I can't say."

Sullivan's Travels
- In the airplane scene, the author of the book "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" is shown to be "Sinclair Beckstein", an amalgamation of the names of authors Upton Sinclair, Sinclair Lewis, and John Steinbeck.

Blade Runner - While the film is loosely based on Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", the title comes from a book by Alan Nourse called "The Bladerunner". William S. Burroughs wrote a screenplay based on the Nourse book, and a novella entitled "Blade Runner: A Movie." Ridley Scott bought the rights to the title but not the screenplay or the book. The Burroughs composition defines a blade runner as a person who sells illegal surgical instruments.

Knocked Up - This movie was originally going to be a follow up to The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005), having Seth Rogen and team to reprise their roles as the Smart Tech team.
