Audio problem: At the park, when Sonny is talking to his two friends, Julian throws a stick in the path of a rollerblader. The scene closes with a laughing Julian proud of the fact that he tripped the poor rollerblader. We hear the blader (off-screen) yell out "G**d**n stick!" This is clearly Adam Sandler's voice (most likely dubbed in during post-production).

Continuity mistake: When Sonny and Layla are reading Julian the bedtime story, Julian's position on the pillows changes during the changing of the angles of the camera.

Continuity mistake: In the courtroom scene, Julian and Sonny embrace in a hug with Sonny's right hand over his left hand behind Julian. As they speak to one another the camera angle changes and shows Sonny's left hand on top of his right.

Continuity mistake: When Sonny and Julian are in the park holding up signs for the rollerbladers, the homeless guy that wanted the sausage McMuffin with hash browns came through, and crashed into a pole. This causes the homeless guy to roll to the edge of the rock near the pond. But in the next shot, he is standing up next to his cart. (01:05:10 - 01:05:40)

Revealing mistake: When Sonny puts the newspaper over the puddle of milk, notice it doesn't get wet at all. Newspaper very obviously gets wet when exposed to liquids.

Continuity mistake: When Sonny is giving Julian a bath, in the shots where Julian is closest to the camera, you can see a wide gap between the bath and the camera and even the side of the bath tub, as if it's in the middle of the room. In the shots behind Sonny, the bath is right next to a brick wall.


Sonny: I know this is the right thing because I would die for this kid just so he won't feel one ounce of sadness. That's why you're here right now, to protect me, to be scared for me to be a good father. And that's exactly what I'm gonna be.
