Incorrect Trivia
What follows are trivia items we now believe are bogus. Some of them will have explanations, some will not. We just leave 'em in for interest, really.
Myth: Some of the scenes in this movie were improvised, including the part where Chevy Chase's golfball accidentally breaks Bill Murray's window.

Actually, the scene between Chevy & Bill wasn't added until it was realized that the two biggest stars in the movie never share the screen. So, Chevy, Bill & Harold Ramis (the director) went to lunch, wrote the concept for the scene, and shot it that very afternoon. Just think, had it not been for that lunch, we would never know about smokable and playable grass :)
