Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Continuity mistake: When the officers are carrying Marvin Acme's gurney away, one of them bumps into a crate of squeaking shoes. As the crate topples over, its lid flips upside down between cuts. (00:30:25)

Continuity mistake: As Roger and Jessica get tied to the hook, Wheezy and Stupid switch places between shots. (01:22:15)

Revealing mistake: When Eddie's Plymouth skids out from R.K. Maroon's lot, a large section of the Red Car's railway track gets torn from the pavement with the greatest of ease - revealing that the track is actually just a set of metal strips laid out in the center of the road. (01:07:40)

Continuity mistake: At some point during the opening cartoon short, Roger drinks a bottle of Acme chili sauce and flies directly into a wall-mounted ironing board. The ironing board has a handle on its left side - which vanishes between shots. (00:03:10)

Factual error: At the moment R.K. Maroon gets shot and killed in his office, look at the framed poster of Pistol Packin' Possum that's dated MCMXXLVIII. In Roman numerals, two X's never appear before an L - which makes this a bogus date. (01:07:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Valiant is in the bar and just learned that his friend has been laid-off he takes a drink but Dolores puts her hand over it. In the next shot she has a shot glass in her hand and a bottle, but when Valiant shows her the check, both the glass and the bottle are gone. (00:12:00)

Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: When Eddie goes to meet Maroon with his accusations, Maroon is holding a distinctively brass colored gun. When Eddie attacks him, the gun is released by Maroon, and it instantly cuts to a shot of Eddie on top of him, an identical gun in hand. Then when they get up, Eddie tosses the gun aside. When Doom shoots Maroon through the window, Eddie dives for cover and once again the gun is amazingly in his hand. (01:06:20 - 01:07:15)

Factual error: Eddie Valiant borrows Deloris' camera to photograph Jessica playing "Patty Cake". There were at least 13 photos from a roll of film that could make only 6 or 8 shots.

Continuity mistake: When Eddie gets the camera from Dolores, the way he holds the camera changes in the next shot. (00:12:15)

R.K. Maroon: How much do you know about show business, Mr. Valiant?
Eddie Valiant: Only that there is no business like it, no business I know.
R.K. Maroon: Yeah. And there's no business more expensive. I'm 25 grand over budget on the latest Baby Herman cartoon. You've seen the rabbit blowing his lines. He can't keep his mind on his job. You know why?
Eddie Valiant: One too many refrigerators dropped on his head?
R.K. Maroon: Nah, he's a toon. You can drop anything you want on his head, he'll shake it off. But break his heart, goes to pieces just like you and me.

Trivia: After reading Judge Doom's introduction and that the character never blinks, Christopher Lloyd immediately realised that Judge Doom was a toon.

Question: Does "pattycake" also mean something sexual? We were obviously at first supposed to think Jessica and Acme had sex, but if they were, why would she say "pattycake" and why does Maroon say "You're not the first guy whose wife went pattycake on him"? Am I missing out on something?

MikeH

Chosen answer: According to the director, Pattycake is the toon equivalent to sex.
