Revealing mistake: When Puffy the dog bites Ted and pulls him along, Ted digs his fingernails into the floor, they scrape along, making marks. If you look very closely you can see faint pre-made marks made in the floor, where he drags his nails along. (01:28:45)

Continuity mistake: When Ben Stiller got his "frank and beans" caught in the zipper, the friendly police officer thought he would assist with the problem. He unbuttoned his sleeves and rolled them up, but then the next camera shot showed them buttoned up, and had to be rolled up again. (00:17:30)

Question: Healy tries to impress Mary by pretending to be an architect, drugging the dog, getting new teeth, liking the same movies, and by saying he works with handicapped children. Why then would he call them "r***rds" and say he keeps one in a cage and puts him on a leash like a dog?! Wouldn't he think this would piss Mary off? I never understood that scene and why he would say this.

Answer: Because he is ignorant and doesn't know anything about disabled people, he actually doesn't realise what he is saying is offensive.

Chosen answer: Apparently he didn't consider that - either he's just being an idiot or he's trying to make an extremely ill-considered joke. Either way, that's a character mistake, not a movie mistake.
