Best comedy movie mistakes of 1971
Continuity mistake: Polly Browne is in her dressing room with a picture of Tony Brockhurst on her mirror. She starts to sing and picks the picture off the mirror. As we see a close-up in her hands it is a totally different picture of Tony. As she puts it back, the photo has reverted back to the original.
Factual error: When Lurcio is dragging his ass through the market he passes several stalls which stock fruits and vegetables totally unknown to the Romans - potatoes, corn, papayas, mangoes and breadfruit amongst them. They were unknown in Europe during the time the film is set, and the Romans did not trade with anyone who knew about them, either.
Other mistake: When the Mayflower truck is on the move picking everyone up for the heist, a mysterious hole appears above the truck's cab, cut out in the letter "o" in "Mayflower" when Pop is picked up, that wasn't there a moment before, and then it vanishes. The same thing occurs after the heist, when the truck crashes into the police cars.
