Plot hole: When Dr. Marvin is trying to get Bob to leave the night before his television interview, he can't leave because it's pouring rain. He also can't drive him because their car was left at the boat dock. However, Dr. Marvin could have easily called for a cab to drive Bob back to where he's staying.

Suggested correction: This assumes that there is a taxi service in the small town in which they reside.

This is obviously a tourist town, which would likely create the need for a taxi service.

Mike Lynch

It also seems to be a fairly secluded and very rich tourist town with cars almost necessary to get around.

Continuity mistake: When Bob and Dr. Marvin are interviewed by Good Morning America the book Bob is holding changes positions between shots. The changes of position are not possible from shot to shot. (01:07:30)
