Revealing mistake: After the water tentacle sequence, Coffee brings Schoenick back to their bunks to get the submachine gun, so they can take over the rig. The bag containing the gun is stashed behind some pipes up by the ceiling. Watch when he reaches behind the pipes to grab the bag--the pipes move at least six inches. (01:31:57)rbryant73
Revealing mistake: At the end, when all the historical figures are going back into the phone booth, you can see the trap door in the back open and the people go through it. It would be kind of tight to fit all of them in the booth at the same time.
Revealing mistake: When little Melvin gets turned back into Toxie, Toxie charges towards the devil and picks him up, and starts swinging him up in the air. While he's doing that, you can tell the devil has been replaced by a very unconvincing dummy.
Revealing mistake: After Dooley and Jerry Lee were shot at and the window was blown out in Dooley's Mustang, they give chase to the Mercedes, look carefully at the "dog". In two shots in the chase sequence, you can see it is a fake dog and looks very much like the fake dog in the bar scene lunge. (00:56:30)
Revealing mistake: During the transport of the POWs by train (which starts about 26 mins into the film) the number on the side of the engine is visible as 719. About 3 mins (filmwise) into the journey it appears in mirror image. It appears they filmed the train moving from right to left, but throughout the film the train moves from left to right, so the film must have been reversed. It happens twice, the second time 14 min 24 sec after the first. (00:29:34)
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Buck causes all the pots and pans to crash while Tia and her mother are hugging, the final of the "reaction shots" is a close up of the two kids. You can see Amy Madigan squeeze their arms as a cue to make their shocked expressions; prior to this Gaby Hoffman was looking up with a neutral expression on her face. (01:33:10)
Revealing mistake: When the locksmith van stops at the mansion, the headlights have translucent covers taped to the grill. This was to prevent the lights from being too bright in the previous nighttime overhead shot.
Revealing mistake: Toward the end when Nick shoots through the sheets at Sato there is a big circle drawn on the sheet where the shot is supposed to hit.
Revealing mistake: When Nick cuts in half Tex, if you see closely the hair of Tex changes length showing the stuntman.
