7 Things You Didn’t Know About Sleepless In Seattle
5. The Reference
Of all the amazing pop culture references Seinfeld gave fans over the years, one of the best was the “soup nazi.” As it turns out, Sleepless in Seattle referenced the infamous soup villain two years before Seinfeld. In the film a story is pitched that talks about a man that “sells the greatest soup you have ever eaten,” but “he’s the meanest guy in the world.”
4. Tiramisu Problem
Back in 1993, the internet and Google were not around to answer life’s questions and Sleepless in Seattle left audiences with one major inquiry: What is tiramisu? In the film, a friend of Tom Hanks’ character uses the word tiramisu as a word for a sexual act, and since many did not know that tiramisu is actually a type of dessert, it caused some confusion. Tristar revealed they ended up getting around 25 to 30 calls a day from people who wanted to know what tiramisu actually was.
