Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Revealing mistake: As soon as Eddie walks into the Ink & Paint Club to see Donald and Daffy on stage, a shadow of one penguin's drink tray is cast on the wall near stage left. However, the penguin's shadow isn't animated into this shot. Instead what we can see is a shadow of the pole, which was used by puppeteers to carry the tray around the club before any animation took place. (00:15:00)


Revealing mistake: In the shot where Roger looks out of Eddie's apartment window to see the weasels approaching, you can see how their animations overlap the window sill as they cross the street. (00:40:20)


Revealing mistake: In some shots with the red cars, such as when Benny, Eddie, and Roger are about to crash into one, look at the wheels. The trucks appear raised with a third, large wheel in the center, obviously a road vehicle outfitted to look like a streetcar.


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: When Jessica appears on stage, Eddie has Betty Boop standing next to him in all close-up shots, except for a wide shot of the public behind Jessica where Boop is missing. (00:18:15 - 00:19:05)

Roger Rabbit: No! Not my Jessica! Not pattycake! It can't be! It just can't be! Jessica's my wife! It's absolutely impossible! Jessica's the love of my life. The apple of my eye. The cream in my coffee.
Eddie Valiant: Well you better start drinking it black, Acme's taking the cream now.

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?


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