Revealing mistake: In the part in the motel where THING is doing morse code on the table to Gomez you can see the cut-out in the table where the guy's hand is sticking through the table.

Other mistake: When Gomez begins to flip through his desk calendar, we see that "today" is Thursday, March 28, 1991. He then turns to the date of the "next quarter". The left hand page shows Thursday, August 8, but the right hand page shows Tuesday, September 9. (00:11:15)

Revealing mistake: During the Mamoshka dance, right when Gomez throws the knife high in the air (the one that lands in Fester's mouth), the camera goes to a wide shot when the knife is in the air, and you can plainly see that the jugglers are Fester and Gomez's stunts.

Gomez: Have no fear. The courts will decide. They say a man who represents himself has a fool for a client. Well, with God as my witness, I am that fool.

Trivia: The seedy motel sequences were shot at the Wampum Court Motel in Sylmar, CA, a 1950s relic that had definitely seen better days. To enhance the fleabag image, two gaudily-painted signs were added for the film, touting "air conditioning" and the deliberately misspelled "kitchins."

Question: When Gordon and his mother are in Tulley's office, how does Tulley see a resemblance between Gordon and Fester? I thought he had not been seen for 25 years.

Answer: He's seen pictures and paintings of young Fester and notices a resemblance. Like you said, no-one had seen him in 25 years, so all that was required was a passing similarity.
