Quotes

Deagol: Smeagol, I've got one! I've got a fish, Smeag. Smeagol!
Smeagol: Pull it in. Go on. Go on. Go on. Pull it in.


Goofs

Near the beginning, after a toast, Aragorn tilts his mug up to drink from it, and the shadow from the liquid inside is clearly visible through the translucent bottom indicating it's made from plastic and not some kind of metal as it's made to look like.


Crazy Credits

Christopher Lee, who played Saruman in the film was not originally credited at the end of the film as all the other main characters were because he did not appear in the theatrical version. For the Extended DVD however, he does appear in the film and justly gets his drawn character and name credit with the other actors.
