Casablanca and Grim Fandango

The similarities between the two are AMAZING.

Alot of characters from Grim in year two such as Chowchilla Charlie, the roulette keeper, the chief of police, etc. are inspired from characters in Casablanca.

The story is similar and Manny wears the exact same suit as Rick in Casablanca...

I can't even tell you how much the two resemble eachother. Just go see Casablanca!

A lot of us did. I enjoyed it very very much, but I don't know if I'd enjoy it if I didn't first fall in love with GF.


We may have years, we may have hours, but sooner or later, we push up flowers.

Casablanca is one of the movies on my list of movies I need to see. In fact I was watching all my Red Dwarf DVD's recently, one of the episodes from the fourth series is partly based off of Casablanca, and the ending is in fact a parody of Casablanca's ending.

"I'm no good at being noble, kid, but it's pretty obvious the problems of two blobs and a droid don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy cosmos."

At least, I think its Casablanca...

Yeah, I watched Casablanca after I'd played Grim Fandango, and I enjoyed it much more than I would have otherwise I think. XD Because this way, I was looking for little Grim Fandango similarities all the way through, it was fun.


It fortunately is have such friends person's. I hat you.

Fonts are the same too

The font on the DVD, and the font used on the game packaging are almost the same. Also, they use an actor's name (the name escapes me) as a character in the Casino.

I saw Casablanca recently and it was really funny to check the similarities between the movie and GF. And the movie itself is captivating, still actual.
