Revealing mistake: When Frank takes the orange juice from the tray Johnny 5 is holding, the tray moves with the glass for a second. This is because the orange juice glass was glued to the tray, so Johnny wouldn't drop it. (01:05:25)

Revealing mistake: Some shots used in the scene where Johnny runs from the Nova helicopter were shot using the small toy version of Johnny. There were no mountains in the area and a small version was filmed heading towards some big rocks with the camera on the ground to give the impression they were in a mountainous area. (01:30:15)

Trivia: When NOVA catches up with Johnny and the army-men are firing on him, listen to the noise that is made when Johnny fires his laser. It's EXACTLY the same noise as used in Ghostbusters when they fire up their proton packs. Were Ghostbusters' packs made by NOVA?

Answer: They were not driving to Montana, they were in the country driving back to the city, while they discussed Stephanie's animals and responsibilities.

Newton said that a relative left him several acres in Montana. Since they were already in a huge van, they could just stop by Stephanie's place and pick them up.
