Corrected entry: Why are there so many people waiting at that one bathroom where Ace entered at Camp's mansion? Seeing as how he is extremely rich, he must have many other bathrooms in his giant house.
Corrected entry: All football field scenes are shot at the Orange Bowl and not Joe Robbie Stadium (ProPlayer Stadium) where the Dolphins actually play.
Corrected entry: When Woodstock says he is sending new coordinates to the Norwegian whaling fleet, the blips on the radar screen move even when the beam is not sweeping over them. The screen also makes it look as though Woodstock's radar (and the whole nightclub?) is smack in the middle of the fleet.rabid anarchist
Corrected entry: When Ace is delivering the package at the beginning of the movie, he lets the elevator doors close on it. However, all elevator doors are equipped with sensors so that they won't close on things. The package would have been big enough to keep the doors open.
Corrected entry: The "stone" Ace finds in snowflake's tank is supposed to be a cut of "Orange Amber." This is questionable as amber (which isn't really a stone, but is actually a resin) is extremely delicate and dissolves easily even in untreated water, take into account the amount of chemicals present in an aquarium and a piece as small as the ones used in the ring wouldn't stand a chance.
Corrected entry: When Ace is going to inspect the tank he climbs halfway down the ladder and jumps down. Then he takes a few steps and makes it nearly halfway across the tank. In the next shot they zoom in on Roger and Mellisa but you here about 7-10 more steps, enough for Ace to reach were he was going but when they show him again it looks as if he's barely moved if moved at all.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, Ace's landlord says how he "heard animals scratching around" in Ace's apartment. Ace then lets him inside to snoop around, but at his signal all the animals hide. Thing is, the landlord would have a master key that would allow him access to all his tenants' apartments, so why didn't he just have a look himself when Ace wasn't home?
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie when the dolphin is stolen, Finkle puts his hand (wearing the Superbowl ring) on the tank. This is a man's hand, however, Finkle would have a woman's hand seeing as he is posing as Lieutenant Einhorn at this time. There is also no way he could have been Finkle at this point in time because later in the movie it is shown that "she" has been a lieutenant for a while.
Corrected entry: When Ace is hanging on the wall in the James Bond scene, when he lets go with one hand to open the door his hand holding him slips and he still hangs, showing he is standing on something.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the movie, at the docks, when Einhorn has the gun pointed to Ace's head, you can see that the trigger is pulled all the way in. (01:10:30)
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, at the Super Bowl between the Miami Dolphins and the Philadelphia Eagles, Ace is sneaking up on the albino pigeon sitting on the gatorade coolers. The Eagles' mascot walks up and shoos the bird away, but they are on the Dolphins' side of the field. Why would the Eagles mascot be on that side? (01:17:35)
Corrected entry: After Ace reveals that Einhorn is a man by showing her "scorching case of hemorrhoids" she runs after him and he slides out of the way causing her to fall into the water. If you look closely, as she's falling there are no "hemorrhoids."
Corrected entry: When Ace is visiting the run-down rural home of Ray Finkle's parents, Ray's mother shows Ace an 8mm film of the kick that Ray missed in the Super Bowl. The ball misses wide left, but when the referee is shown signalling that the kick is no good, he is waving his arms as though it missed wide right. (00:50:05)
Corrected entry: When Ace is driving with his head stuck out of the window, his hair never moves. Either he's stationary against a backdrop or that is some seriously strong hair gel.
Trivia: When Ace enters the club to meet the guy with long blond hair and glasses, the song playing is "Hammer Smashed Face" by death metal band Cannibal Corpse. Jim Carrey is a fan of Cannibal Corpse and insisted they appear in the movie since it takes place in Florida, the "capital" of death metal.
