Charlie's Angels - Game Troubles
When Drew Barrymore has been shot out of the window and is naked she goes to some kids house. The two children are both furiously pushing buttons on a Playstation controller when the game on the screen is Final Fantasy 8 and is in the middle of a battle. This is a time when frantic button pressing is not required AND it is a single player game. Not a two player game.

Well spotted. This happens a bit too often in films involving games. The only reason as to why this happened is that the kids in reality have been told what to do in that scene; pretend they are playing a computer game, whether or not it looks realistic is beyond the director's point (what do non-gaming adults know anyway) so that is why the kids look like Neanderthal dorks stereo-typing what computer game playing looks like.

Actually Drew was completely naked, she was covering up with a float toy

Although I am not sure this is the case (or even that this really happens at all), I have heard that often in movies things such as video games which appear on television screens are later added. The children may not have been playing anything originally, which probably contributed to the problem.

You'll need to push square repeatedly if you press select to use boost during battle in FF VIII. I know that's not the point but give Drew a break, she's half naked...

yeah, I noticed this slip-up too. Of course being the game nerd that I am, especially over the Final Fantasy series, I was a made a bit happy and angry over it. I was glad that a Final Fantasy game made a small apperance in the movie. I was angered because of, the fact that they were pointlessly button-mashing making it look like they were entering commands, when the command screen hadn't even come up. The only real buttons needed for battles are the "X" button and the R1 button, and the square button, for entering the commands, and for Squall's gunblade, and boosting the GF's power. But they were hitting buttons for no reason. Seeing the two controllers made me mad. During this slip-up, althought I know it was done on accident, I found myself screaming at the televison to the two kids going, "Stop that! No! No! Quit it! Put the other controller down and make it look believe-able that you are playing Final Fantasy 8, we can see the game, so we know they aren't playing a game that requires such button mashing!" But It's common, just like in some movies and books that the children will be playing a game or watching the televison, with the televison off and the only light coming from behind it.

Naked + float toy = 1/2 naked = not naked enough.

Yeah, I noticed this and became very happy when I first saw it in the theater. I as well found it odd that there are supposedly two kids playing a one player game. Even though that was strange, I was glad that they showed my all time favorite game in the movie. The 2nd time I watched this movie in the theater and as well as on the DVD, it was released in the US a couple weeks ago, I noticed at the end there was no thanks to Squaresoft (for those who don't know, the company that releases the Final Fantasy series and many great RPGs). Though on the DVD, there is a trailer for the upcoming Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. Also, being the FFVIII fanatic I am, I also noticed they used Quezacotl on an easy enemy. True, they could want to hurry the fight up quickly.
