Audio problem: At the stock exchange, after Randolph keels over, one guys that they should call an ambulance, whereas Mortimer replies, "Fuck him!" When Mortimer says that, his lips don't match. Not entirely in synch.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Jamie Lee Curtis brings Dan Aykroyd home, you can visibly see she is wearing pantyhose. However, just a few second later, inside the apartment, she takes off her dress and is only wearing panties. (00:58:40)

Question: How much did Louis and Valentine make after they scored at the commodity exchange?

Answer: Without knowing precisely how many stocks Winthorp and Valentine sold at the beginning, there is no way to get an exact figure. But we can make some educated guesses. Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice is sold in contracts, with each contract containing 15,000 pounds. By the end of the day, Winthorp and Valentine were making at least an 84 cent profit on each pound, and $12,600 on each contract. If they sold 20,000 contracts, their profit would be $252 million. Considering the Duke's lost $394 million, that estimate seems to fit (and is likely even a little low).
