Breakdown

Other mistake: At the end of the movie when the truck falls off the bridge and hits the water, the hood breaks off and you can see that there is no engine or transmission in the truck. (01:28:40)

Other mistake: In the bank scene, the monitor on the bank manager's desk goes from being connected and has a power cord, however when Kurt rises to go to the bathroom, the back of the monitor shows no cords whatsoever. (00:48:00)

Other mistake: When Barr arrives at his house it's still dark and his wife points out it's 6:00 in the morning... but considering it's summertime (proven by short shadows throughout the film and the heat in the desert), at 6:00 the sun would already be up or coming up. No dark sky exists at 6 AM in the summertime.

Revealing mistake: During the ending sequence, just as J.T. Walsh is pushing the truck on the bridge, there is a shot looking at the front of the semi and you can see that it is not J.T. Walsh driving. The stunt man is noticeably heavier than J.T. is, and his hair is messier.

Jeff Taylor: Is that right?
Earl: 'Course, if you use a CB, you gotta have a handle. I'm thinking for you, "Shit For Brains."
