Corrected entry: After the parking lot chase/filming scene, the Chubby Rain cast and crew are previewing the finished scene on a small screen later that day. A musical score plays over the playing scene as Carol stalks Kit...but how did Bobby and the rest of the crew create music to go with it? Logically, this is impossible, because A - there was not enough funding for a musical department, B - there is never any indication of even a makeshift musical department for the filming of Chubby Rain in the film, and C - the scene was shot earlier that day, not nearly enough time to score it.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: When Kit Ramsay is getting pissed off with the guy trying to get him to do a film, he says he scanned the script for K's and it came up with a number exactly divisible by three. However, the exact number that Kit Ramsey gives for the amount of times the letter K appears is 1,456. This is NOT perfectly divisible by 3, and it does NOT equate to 486. Mathematically, it equates to 485.3333333..., which, rounded off, is 485.
Corrected entry: At the start of the film, Bowfinger patiently (and sincerely) explains that all films cost just $1240.00, and "Chubby Rain" will cost just that. At the time he hasn't even met Daisy, so he has no way of knowing that the developing and printing of the exposed film will be charged to her credit card. As another post points out, this expense alone is hugely more than his entire budget. Did he not count a vital part of production - developing and printing exposed stock - as part of his budget? This is not a character mistake - he discusses lab costs throughout production of "Chubby Rain", so he knows perfectly well what is coming.
Corrected entry: Bowfinger states he has been saving one dollar a week for something like 2,100 weeks - forty years, give or take. Relatively speaking, one dollar was a lot of money in 1960. It is inconceivable that a ten year old kid could save that much.
Corrected entry: When Heather Graham's character is running with Kit Ramsey (Eddie Murphy) towards the end of the movie, she keeps switching between speaking with her "Chubby Rain" Hispanic accent and with her normal speaking manner. Understandable she might only need to speak with a Hispanic accent for Chubby Rain's filming, but since she knew that Kit Ramsey didn't know he was being filmed for a movie, you'd think she'd try to keep her character (and hence her accent) consistent to avoid raising his suspicion.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: Kit Ramsay knows that Bowfinger and his crew have been shooting footage of his twin brother Jiff, pretending it is really him. So, rather than allow himself to be blackmailed when they show him the footage they got of him exposing himself, why not just claim they staged it using Jiff?
Corrected entry: When Bowfinger is trying to get himself a smart suit for the meeting, he simply goes into an expensive shop, takes a jacket off a hanger, puts it on and replaces it with his own tacky one, then walks out. Wouldn't they have security tags?
Corrected entry: Bowfinger had to film Kit Ramsey from a distance.. why then, at the premiere of the film, do we see the camera angles we saw of the scenes instead of the ones Bobby filmed? for example, in the scene where the cop's face melts, we see him face on, but we see that Bowfinger's crew are filming from up an embankment behind the cop, so the shot in Chubby Rain would have been of the cop's back and not a close up of his face.
