Hollywood spends billions and billions of dollars on Nicolas Cage movies every year. Sometimes you have to wonder if these big-shot fat cats are asleep at the wheel or what because half the time these movies come out with some craaaazy mistakes in them.
Nicolas Cage plays Castor Troy, a powerful criminal mastermind who undergoes an experimental surgical procedure where he is temporarily given the face, body, and voice of John Travolta. This is patently ridiculous. There’s no such name as Castor Troy. Wake up, guys!
Nicolas Cage’s character travels to a vast Arctic wasteland where he suspects a sunken ship might be hidden. He randomly begins digging approximately three inches into the snow and immediately uncovers the ship’s nameplate. Come on! Nicolas Cage could never have figured out where that ship was. He’s borderline retarded.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Nicolas Cage has a very small role in this film. Who dropped the ball on this one? Nicolas Cage is actually a big-time movie star. Whoopsie!
Nicolas Cage’s character gets into a bar fight in Alabama and is sent to a federal prison for like a million years. In actuality, no person in Alabama or anyplace in the world has a bullshit accent like that.
Con Air bonus blunder: This movie is named after a hair-dryer company instead of something cool.
Nicolas Cage has a rather prominent moustache throughout this film. But if you compare this to photographs of Nicolas Cage, it’s pretty obvious that he doesn’t have a moustache at all. Come on, guys! Do your homework!
Although this movie is set in 1996, Nicolas Cage’s character refers to himself as a “chemical super freak.” The song “Super Freak” by Rick James was released in 1981, a full 15 years before this movie supposedly took place. Uh-oh!
Captain Corelli’s Mandolin
I haven’t seen this one, but an army guy playing a mandolin? Yeah, right! Nice try, Hollywood.
Honeymoon in Vegas
In this film’s rib-tickling and heartwarming finale, Nicolas Cage joins with a group of skydiving Elvis Presley impersonators to parachute over Las Vegas, and win his wife’s heart back. The assembled crowd applauds and welcomes the skydiving Elvises rather than beating them to death with their own prop guitars for being such a sucky way to end the movie.
