Trivia

Originally, Yann Moix's Podium (2004) star Benoît Poelvoorde was signed on for the main role, but bowed out at the last minute, delaying the film significantly. Before Franck Dubosc, the role was then offered to Jean Dujardin, who passed on the project (a fact which is referenced in the finished film). See more »

Goofs

Many dialogue scenes have a horrible sync issue between the lips and the audio, due to many reasons (sound problems on set, Lucy Gordon having done her scenes in English, many scenes having to be reworked in post, the studio just wanting to get it over with...). The level of bad sync is unheard of for a recent movie with this budget and has to be seen and heard to be believed. See more »
