Corrected entry: If Sonny works at a toll booth one day a week, how does he shop at "Barney's", have an extra swimsuit, with oxygen tank, and have an extremely big apartment?

Correction: Sonny was hit by a taxi cab and sued and he's living off the profits.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sonny gets hit by the car you can see he is in pain. In the next scene, he is up and unhurt. Wouldn't he still be in pain?

Correction: I think that Sonny wasn't actually in much pain when the car hit him. The car was going very slowly. Perhaps he was pretending he was in more pain than he was, because that is what his little friend wanted?

Corrected entry: When Julian and Sonny are in the park when the Punk rock guy walks by, Sonny mentions to the guy that he apparently hates his dad. When the guy continues to walk away from the camera, you can see he's not talking but apparently is saying about how he "hates his dad".

Correction: Sonny is mocking him/making fun of him and is the one actually saying "I hate my father" and the punk guy walks away.

Corrected entry: When Rob Schneider is watching Julian as Adam Sandler is away "being scuba Sam", Julian is jumping on the couch to the Kangaroo Song. In the very next shot, you can see Julian jumping on the bed. Then in the next shot, he is jumping on the couch and hitting Schneider on the head.

Correction: The point of this scene was to exaggerate how excited Julian gets while watching this video, not to actually chronicle the events of that time.

Kimberly Mason

Correction: That's actually his drama teacher from the Lee Strasberg Institute at New York University, not his middle school math teacher.

Corrected entry: Why does Adam Sandler, when leaving Vanessa's house, while saying the old balls line, exit through the hallway that leads to the bathroom and not the door he came in to the house by?

Correction: The hallway with the bathroom is the same hallway to the entrance door. The bathroom door is on the other side.

Corrected entry: In the final courtroom scene Karin acts surprised when Kevin Garretty says he is the father but they say many times that Kevin Garretty is the father in the courtroom while Karin is listening.

Correction: It is NEVER ACTUALLY said that Kevin is the dad. They all assume because the women wrote the note saying so, and Kevin can't even remember his mom, let alone convivicng him. When he does remember, he tells everyone the story, the judge then says "Pending on a blood test that will clarify this matter."

Corrected entry: During the bedtime story scene the Scuba Steve doll starts out on the left side of Julian's head. When Layla picks it up to kiss it goodnight it is on the right side of his head.

Correction: Scuba Steve is on the left of Julian throughout the scene.

Corrected entry: The film makes reference to the kid being conceived in Toronto when the Jays won the 1992 Series. But in '92, the Jays won the series in Atlanta - they won the 1993 Series in Toronto (against the Phillies).

Correction: Just because the Jays won in Atlanta doesn't mean people weren't watching in Toronto.

Correction: No, the film makes it clear that the kid was conceived at the end of the 1993 World Series. They say, "Joe Carter...Mitch Williams," referring to Carter's World Series-winning home run he hit off Williams in Game 6, which was in Toronto.

Continuity mistake: When Sonny knocks out the delivery guy and he tries to wake him up, he pats him on his pants. When the camera zooms in, his pants are black and white (checkered). The next shot, he's wearing khaki pants.

Nazo: This is bullshit! Should have same rules for everyone, no matter what age.

Trivia: There is some kind of obsession with feet in this film. Corrine is a foot doctor. Sonny tells Julian that he smells like a foot and Julian's teacher's name is Mrs. Foote.

Question: When Sonny and Layla are in the Laundry, why does Layla put coins in 3 different washing machines? I'm guessing it's because she has a lot of laundry but that would have to be a lot of clothes to wash in one go.

Joe Mc

Chosen answer: I used to have to use the local laundromat and I would use anywhere from four to six machines at once. When you have to leave your home to do laundry you tend to put it off as long as possible. She's also probably separating the different types - light, dark, delicates, etc.
