Trivia

I have collected all the famous movie trivia questions with answers from Reddit and other sources. They can be very useful in quizzes or games, or simply to learn more information. Most of the fun Hangover details are suitable for kids.

Easter Eggs

Finding Easter Eggs in movies is one of my favorite hobbies. Hidden objects, characters, and their meanings are wonderful ways to discover the filmmaker's perspectives of any given movie.

Hidden Details

Just before the big meet up, you see the reflection of The Wolfpack's car in Mr. Chows sunglasses. A homage to Casino, where Robert De Niro also has his meet up and also talks about his uncertainty going into the Las Vegas dessert.

There's a scene right before they meet Carlos' mom where Alan says "It's got, uh, Ted Danson and Magnum P.I. And that Jewish actor." The film he's talking about is 3 Men and a Baby, obviously referencing the characters' current circumstances.

1 - A strip club can be seen behind the wedding chapel, foreshadowing Stu's marriage to a stripper

When Alan has flashbacks while picturing everyone as a kid except Teddy & The Monk, he pictures Chow as well further confirming they exchanged letters as well as childhood pictures.

1 - Alan accidentally drugged the group with marshmallows meant for Teddy. Earlier on the beach, Phil tossed the bags over and Alan spent the next few seconds figuring out which bag was drugged.

1 - There is a quick cut that shows the character winning on a $20,000 bet, while in the background, is a bet of $30. There is no table in Las Vegas that has that wide of a bet spread.

1 - The crew at the airport see the departure time for Bangkok. When they take off, the film shows a four engine aircraft. When they land, it shows a two engine. They clearly had a layover in another country, and the departure for Bangkok doesn't make sense.
