Continuity mistake: When Adam Sandler is shopping with the little boy throwing the cans on the ground, they change place every shot.

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.

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: 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.

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.

More trivia for Big Daddy

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.

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.
