Continuity mistake: When the mermaid rescues Allen after the boating accident, the amount of sand on Allen's face changes from the whole side of his face to just his chin to hardly any sand at all. This goes on for the whole scene.
Continuity mistake: When Madison is taking a bath in Allen's apartment, she starts the water and then as the camera pans around her, all of a sudden the big tub is full.
Factual error: When the TV store is closing at Bloomingdale's, The Richard Simmons Show is shown on the monitors. In 1984, when the film is set, this show was broadcast only in the morning and was not released in syndication. The show would therefore not have been playing on a television channel in New York City in the late evening.
Other mistake: When she breaks the TV's with her "voice" they pan to the salesmen. The glass display case is intact. Had her pitch actually been able to break glass the display case would have gone as well.
Other mistake: Joe Cirillo is credited as playing "Sergeant Munson", but his name badge in the movie reads "Edwards."
Continuity mistake: At the beach, Walter and one of the twins carry a box and are inches away from the boat. Half a second later, when the angle cuts to Allen asking the other twin, the first couple is standing behind, far from the boat, holding the same box and repeating the previous movements.Sacha
Factual error: After Allen and Madison jump into the water at the end of the movie and fend off the frogmen, they immediately come upon a coral reef and other aquatic features that appear tropical and which would not be found in the Hudson River/New York Harbor.
Factual error: When Allen falls into the water after Fat Jack's boat hits him, his wallet falls out of his pocket and rests on a coral reef. The ocean off Cape Cod is much too cold for coral reefs.
