Blast from the Past

Factual error: After some tinkering with a TV set and a mirror, Calvin Webber finds that he can watch a TV show in reverse image. On the screen is the opening of "The Honeymooners" showing the cast members' names superimposed on a picture of the moon, with Jackie Gleason's face. But the picture is in color, mostly blue and off-white, while the actual "Honeymooners" series was filmed in black-and-white.

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Alicia Silverstone and Dave Foley are in the porno store, they cut to a guy standing behind a counter. All of the explicit shots of the videotape covers on the countertop are blurred out.

Adam, Age 11: What's baseball?
Calvin: It's a game, son. I can explain it pretty easily. See, there's a pitcher.
Adam, Age 11: Oh, like a painting.
Calvin: No, a pitch-er.
Adam, Age 11: Like one of mom's?
Calvin: No. There's a man who throws the ball to a man who has a bat.
Adam, Age 11: Oh! The nocturnal flying mammal?
