On the cinema marquee is Spaceman from Pluto. This is what the head of Universal, Sid Sheinberg in 1985 wanted to call Назад в будущее (1985). Shienberg was persuaded to change his mind by a response memo from Steven Spielberg which thanked him for the wonderful joke. See more »
Florence tells Lewis that the Brothers Grimm wrote Grimms' Fairy Tales in the Black Forest which is in Schwarzwald Germany. In reality they wrote the tales in Kassel Germany which at the time of the writing would have been a full day's travel away from the Black Forest. See more »
I was very excited to see this movie as I'm a fan of fantasy films, plus casting Jack Black and Cate Blanchett was icing on the cake. However, the movie lacked excitement. There were a lot of drawn out boring segments where I felt myself closing my eyes and drifting off a bit and that's rare for me during a movie. The previews made it look like it was going to be creatively exciting, but all the good parts were in the trailer. Since going to the movies these days can be costly, I say don't bother wasting your money.
