Deliberate mistake: When MIB agents exit the lift to get into the main hall of the MIB Office, the lift opens halfway up the wall and they need to go down a little platform. But when K and J return during the lockdown and face the trashcan with guns, the lift opens at floor level, so it can be conveniently peppered with bullets. (01:02:05)
Deliberate mistake: Am I REALLY supposed to believe that a helicopter is capable of hovering above the top of Mt Everest? [In the DVD specials, the filmmakers say that they're absolutely aware that it's not possible for a helicopter to hover above Mt Everest. They just thought it would be a funny scene if a helicopter pulled the dead guy away from the mountain.] (00:02:15)
Deliberate mistake: When the lady is supposedly in the water with the crocodile, you can see that it isn't her. It is actually Steve in a fat suit and wig.
Deliberate mistake: When John and his sister Patty are watching the old videos, it shows John saying that he would pay for his niece's college education and the camera is showing them from the side. John says "And that's a promise from your uncle John." and the camera is in front of him showing his face. There is no way they could change camera angles like that in a home movie.
Deliberate mistake: Basil tells Austin he is being sent to Studio 69 located on Eighth Avenue and 69th Street in New York City. However there is no such address. Eighth Avenue ends at 59th Street, after that it becomes Columbus Avenue.
Deliberate mistake: During the scene where Richard is playing croquet on the lawn in front of the Delta Iota Kappa house, the letters of the fraternity are visible on the front of the house. The Greek letter for "Delta" should be a triangle yet it is the letter "D" in the shot. This is presumably to follow the "DIK" joke that would not be as obvious if written in correct Greek letters.
