I almost never watch the credits, but you make a great point. I checked my copy of Being John Malkovich
, and sure enough:
The story, all names, characters and incidents portrayed in this production are fictitious. No identification with actual persons, places, buildings and products is intended or should be inferred.
Thanks for inspiring me to check that, btw. Watching the credits roll to the tune of Bjork singing Amphibian
confirmed that there isn't a second of that film I don't love.
