Other mistake: When Chet is getting on everyone's case about everything that is wrong with the house, he says to Lisa, "I didn't think it was a whale's d__k, honey" in reference to the missile going through the house. The French subtitles has "bitte" to mean the portion of the male anatomy. The correct French word is "bite". "Bitte" means either "bite" or "bollard" in English. (01:14:10 - 01:16:10)

Revealing mistake: When Gary and Wyatt come home and see Chet turned into a pile of poo, Chet shoots his tongue from his mouth and catches a fly. Look closely, the tongue flies completely out of his mouth and is attached to a metal spring. (01:24:55)
