Did You Know?


The scene where Alex dreams about steaks slowly falling down on him spoofs an iconic scene from the DreamWorks movie American Beauty (1999), where Lester Burnham dreams of roses falling down on his daughters friend, Angela. The same song is played in both scenes.


Alex the Lion: Surprise!
Marty the Zebra: Aaahhh! Alex! Do not interrupt me when I'm daydreaming. When a zebra's in the zone, leave him alone.


The animals take a subway from Central Park to Grand Central Terminal. They are seen on a subway platform on 59th Street and Lexington Avenue, which is the correct subway station that you would take from the south end of east Central Park. However, on the platform, the sign shows that that platform is for the 4, 5, and 6 trains. In reality, the 4 and 5 trains are express trains, and stop at express platforms underneath both the local platforms and a platform for the BMT Broadway Line. So except for during service disruptions, the 4, 5 and 6 would not all stop at the same platform (though late at night, 4 trains run local and use the local platforms). Also, the train is shown to be one of R62 stock cars. However, this stock has two sets of doors on each side of the car. In reality, IRT rolling stock has three doors on each side.

Crazy Credits

At the end of the closing credits, Gloria appears and taps the screen with a magic wand to end the movie.

Alternate Versions

The UK version omits a partially uttered use of strong language to secure a U rating. International versions do not implement this cut, as filmmakers often put in single uses of strong language in otherwise-junior films to secure a higher rating in the US. When the film comes to be rated in the UK, the language has to be cut for a lower rating. See also 101 Dalmatians.

Plot Summary

Synopsis (WARNING: Spoilers)

Can Ben Barnes Fix Thanos?

Ben Barnes' character in "The Punisher" sees a therapist, so obviously he's perfectly qualified to give his fellow villains Magneto, Mystique, and Thanos some much-needed therapy.
