Other mistake: Josh's birthday, according to the milk carton, is in the winter. But, some time after he celebrates his birthday at the Italian restaurant, he returns to his childhood neighborhood and it's fall (colored leaves, etc.). It can't be the following year because he's only gone for a total of a few weeks.

Other mistake: When Josh and Billy are over the balcony dropping the water balloon on the mover on the street, the balloon is shown dropping from an overhead angle off course from hitting the man below, yet we hear him scream being hit, when it easily would have missed him where Josh dropped it.

Continuity mistake: The morning Josh becomes big, one of his sneakers in the bedroom swaps from being underneath the bed by the coat sleeve, to half a meter away in a different position.

Trivia: The big piano scene was actually rehearsed months before shooting. Tom and Robert had to practise on a cardboard cut out with exact dimensions of the real piano. On the day of shooting there were stunt doubles instead of them to film their feet. But once the director saw that they could do it, the stunt doubles were never used.

Question: What is the video game young Josh plays at the beginning of the movie?

Answer: According to imdb: Though some believe it to be Colossal (Cave) Adventure or an early Sierra Game, no known game up to 1988 accepts the commands "melt ice wizard" or "throw thermal pod" (as used in the movie), therefore one can assume the game screen was simply created for the movie.
