* AllStarCast
* HeyItsThatGuy: Oh look, Series/{{House}} is one of Louis' courtiers!
-->'''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick''': Well fine, I'm going to play a lovable old curmudgeon on Fox.
* FakeNationality: The film features an eclectic array of fake Frenchmen. Most notable were Englishman Creator/JeremyIrons as Aramis, Irishman Gabriel Byrne as D'Artagnan, American John Malkovich as Athos, American Peter Sarsgaard as his son, and American Leonardo [=DiCaprio=] 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, Gerard Depardieu, round out the cast. Anne Parillaud, who is a native Parisian, plays Anne of Austria -- who, despite her designation, was from 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.
