Trivia tropes:

  • All-Star Cast: The film concentrated as many French comedic actor or stand-up comedian of the early 2000s as it possibly could along with the main cast.
  • Directed by Cast Member: Alain Chabat (Julius Caesar) is also the director and screenwriter.
  • Disowned Adaptation: Albert Uderzo didn't like the film. He found it too mired in the "Canal Spirit" ("L'Esprit Canal", the brand of humor of the French TV channel Canal+, of which Alain Chabat was of one the patron saints) and way too far from the spirit of his comic books.

  • Fake Nationality: Monica Bellucci (Italian) plays Cleopatra (Egyptian of Greek descent).
  • The Other Darrin: Some actors from Asterix & Obelix Take on Caesar didn't return.
  • Throw It In!: Edouard Baer improvised Otis' famous speech. "There's no good nor bad situations..."
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The film is a major offender today. Examples that stand out include a joke about early 2000's cellphones, and the presence of humorist Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala, when he wasn't yet making extremely controversial/offensive one-man-shows and statements on a regular basis, which had him permanently banned from French talk shows and movie productions.
