From Wikipedia, here's a piece of movie trivia that should be of special interest to watershapers:
At the beginning of the final scene at the Trevi Fountain, the fountain is dry and being cleaned. While the actors are there, the fountain begins flowing again. However, when the actors leave, the fountain is completely full, not a possibility given the size of the fountain and the period of time over which the scene occurs.
