Pulled this. How is Mozart a jerk? He may be Brilliant, but Lazy or a Man Child, but he is not a Jerkass. He always means well.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Mozart may be a jerk, and seem to make fun of and insult everyone despite their respect for him. However he loves his wife and kid as well as his father, and has made about as many celebrity friends as that other Jerkass Genius. Lastly he apologizes to Salieri for mocking him before he dies, which actually gives Salieri a My God, What Have I Done? moment.

I pulled this from the page:
- All There in the Manual: It's implied the lone child at the party where Mozart plays musical chairs— the same child that witnesses him playing music as his penalty for losing— is young Ludwig van Beethoven.
- It does not explain how the boy is implied to be Ludwig van Beethoven. Which leads to the question whether it is really implied the boy is Beethoven.
- All There in the Manual is when important information about a work's universe is only given in supplementary material. Something that is actually implied in the movie is not All There in the Manual.

I don't know about the context, but Salieri was Beethoven's music teacher, there's no denying that; however, it could easily have been another of Salieri's pupils at that party.
