National Lampoon's European Vacation

Visible crew/equipment: When the Griswolds are in Italy, Ellen sees the billboard advertising her seductive video. She storms away and is later seen backing up into a parking spot at their hotel. The driver is a huge stunt man and notably much larger than Ellen (if not most women) and when parked the petite Ellen exits the vehicle. (01:18:05)

Continuity mistake: When Clark first hits the bike rider with his car, he is nursing his left leg, but later, at the hotel in Rome, he has a cast on his right leg. (00:26:50)

Question: When there's a fight with the German dancers Clark dances with and the Griswolds run away and drive away as fast as they can, why do those German dancers chase after them with ropes? What were they going to do to them?

Answer: They're a lynch mob. Remember what Rusty's date said: Girl: They haven't rang those bells in years! Rusty: What do they mean? Girl: They're going to hang someone! (pause) Rusty: Dad.
