Uncle Buck

Visible crew/equipment: When Buck accidentally takes the stray cat into the house, if you look in the slat between the frame and the door you can see a crewmember waiting to close it, not the kids. This person is too big for a 6 year old. (01:00:25)

Continuity mistake: The scene where the elementary school teacher asks his kid what they did that week. After he asks that question and Maizy raises her hand, look at the desk belonging to the girl in the row next to Maizy. It has crayons and other supplies on it. After the teacher calls Maizy's name, the shot goes back to her, showing the girl in the next row's desk completely empty. (00:58:00)

Cindy Russell: Oh, good.
Buck: Isn't that something? I'm on to cigars now. I'm on to a five-year plan. I eliminated cigarettes, then I go to cigars, then I go to pipes, then I go to chewing tobacco, then I'm on to that nicotine gum.

More trivia for Uncle Buck

Question: When Uncle Buck is going to the party to get Bug, he is stopped at a red light and there are two parents in the car next to him. The father says, "don't go in there with that hat on, they'll kill you". Why would someone be killed for wearing a hat?

Chosen answer: He's being sarcastic, as Buck says in the beginning some of his hats anger a lot of people, which probably connects to when his hat gets taken by one of the teenagers at the party.

Buck is actually referring to his aviator style hat in the earlier scene about people being angered by it. He's wearing the fedora style hat in the scene en route to the party. But I agree the guy was being sarcastic about teenagers.
