Plot hole: During the filming of one of the scenes, why is Slater shocked that Kit really has plutonium? Since he doesn't know that Kit is being filmed without his permission, he should have been expecting what he said.

Factual error: Daisy is an out of work jobbing actress but she has a credit card that will take the cost of developing and printing the stock used to shoot a feature film in 35mm! Since they are watching colour rushes with synchronised sound on film (not cheaper video) they are not doing this on the cheap, either. Minimum cost, for a 90 minute feature, allowing four takes of each shot (which we see them do) - £41,000.00 or around US$85,000.00. That's some credit card. Anyone got the name of the issuing company?

Question: Was the freeway scene in Bowfinger done with CGI or stunt drivers?
