Trivia / MouseHunt

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Ernie, played by Nathan Lane, says "Hakuna Matata" to a vaguely ethnic foreigner at the auction. Lane voices Timon in The Lion King movies. Furthermore, the technician they deal with at the pound is played by Ernie Sabella, the voice of Pumbaa.
    • A very blunt one in the trailer:
    This is Nathan Lane. You loved him in The Birdcage.
    • In a pre-emptive one, Ernie's line while fighting with Lars, "Double! Double! Double!," is a Shout-Out to The Producers. Nathan Lane would later star in the Broadway show as the character who says this line.
  • Breakaway Pop Hit: The film's original score, specifically its main title, has found extensive use outside the context of the film, being used in movie trailers, TV commercials, as well as other films.
  • Fake American: British Lee Evans as Lars.
