* FakeNationality: The film features an eclectic array of fake Frenchmen. Most notable were Englishman Creator/JeremyIrons as Aramis, Irishman Creator/GabrielByrne as D'Artagnan, American Creator/JohnMalkovich as Athos, American Creator/PeterSarsgaard as his son, and American Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio as King Louis XIV, none of whom particularly bothered to disguise their country of origin. This was made particularly noticeable by having an actual Frenchman, Creator/GerardDepardieu, round out the cast. Anne Parillaud, who is a native UsefulNotes/{{Paris}}ian, plays Anne of UsefulNotes/{{Austria}} -- who, despite her designation, was from UsefulNotes/{{Spain}}. Judith Godreche (Christine) is the only other French actor.
* PlayingAgainstType: Leo as the utterly despicable and possibly psychopathic Louis.
** Creator/JeremyIrons who normally plays villains plays a heroic character and a musketeer no less.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: It's a shame that an actual ''Three Musketeers'' film featuring a younger Byrne, Depardieu, Malkovich and Irons was never made.
** Such awesomeness would have reached critical mass, likely triggering the apocalypse.
