Goofs


I know IMDb lists the continuity errors and such in their pages of trivia, but I think I caught a few more. For one, when Rumsfield falls off the roof, he lands opposite to the direction he's actually falling to the ground in when he shoots out his car window.

Also when Hans drives the ambulance, it seems he's going in the wrong direction when he makes a sharp turn to avoid the Pizza Dude. But I'm not really sure what direction he's supposed to be going so I don't know.

When Carol gets back home and makes it past the policeman after the Klopeks' house is burning down, there's this random man who almost runs right into her going one direction and then suddenly turns and heads the other way just to stay in the shot.

And this one, which I think isn't really a goof because the rug could be covering it but...when Art steps onto the porch of the Klopeks he falls through and it makes a hole. Later on in the film, Rumsfield is standing on the same porch in a different spot and makes a new hole from falling through, but there's no sign of the first hole made by Art. But that could be because that hole was covered up by a really thin rug so that may not be a goof.

Re: Goofs


Excellent observations; I've seen the film countless time and haven't noticed any of them, probably because I'm too distracted by the film's greatness.

Re: Goofs


We have a thread devoted to things like that, but yes, nice catches. My favorite "goof" is when Rummy is sitting on his roof, you can see the universal lot/city behind him in the background.

Re: Goofs


It's probably not really a goof, but I've always thought it was a little bit weird and goofy that Mr. Rumsfield sat on the roof in all his military gear eating Alphabet Cookies out of a Childs Cookie box. emoticon

Very attentive HITB (may I use this abbreviation?). Indeed we have a special thread about that topic here. Check it out to see which other goofs we have discovered there.

Re: Goofs


Hey Ray, and everyone! Of course you can use HITB or just call me Nacky. Either one is fine. I was browsing the boards and did see some of the other stuff and the first page of the Green Lights topic but haven't finished it yet.

Re: Goofs


When Art, Ricky, and Ray are talking about Skip, you will see that the beer/soda/whatever Ricky is holding switches hands. From behind its in one hand, and from the front, its in the other. Noticed this the other evening.

Re: Goofs


OK, I think I may have found another goof. About 10 minutes into the movie, Art mentions that he spoke with the 'real estate broad' who sold the Klopek's the house. Later in the movie though, it is revealed the Klopeks 'took' the house from the Napps. Not sure if that counts or not, but I'm sitting here watching the movie, and that caught my attention.

Re: Goofs


We discussed that and came to the conclusion that Art was lying, just to steer things up emoticon
