Known Trivia

  • Kimble swears in German as he carries his colleague into the house. (“Das macht mich stinksauer! Jetzt bin ich sauer!”, which means “That makes me pissed as hell! Now I am pissed!”).
  • The section where Phoebe pretends to be Austrian by sprouting random phrases in German (the language spoken in Austria) was unchanged when the film was dubbed into German. This caused confusion in Germany.
  • Dominic has “Ghostbusters” sheets. Ghostbusters was also directed by Ivan Reitman.
  • The poem that Kimble reads to the children before naptime is “Spring Morning” from A.A. Milne’s book “When We Were Very Young”, with illustrations by E.H. Shepard.
  • Miko Hughes’ character name, Joseph Cousins, is the real name of one of the boys who plays young Dominic (he was played by twins Joseph Cousins and Christian Cousins).
  • Bill Murray and Patrick Swayze were originally offered the role of John Kimble. Danny DeVito was also considered, but was not given the part due to his height.
  • The character of Emma (Sarah Rose Karr) is named after director Ivan Reitman’s own daughter, Emma.
  • Odette Annable’s film debut; she was five years old.
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger worked with Pamela Reed again in the movie Junior. Reed portrayed a pregnant woman with a big appetite, quite similar to her character in this movie. He also worked with Danny DeVito in Junior, a candidate for the role of John Kimble, but was not given the part due to his height.
  • The movie was filmed in Astoria, Oregon.

Goofs: Continuity: At the end of the movie, Kimble tenderly walks with a cane into the classroom. When Rachael comes in, the cane disappears and he whisks her up and spins her around as if he has no injury.
