Big Trouble

Revealing mistake: About 30min into the movie, there is a scene at an airport with a 4-engined 707 freighter. As the characters walk behind the jet, you can see that the left-hand inboard engine pod has no engine on it, unlike the outboard pod. The aircraft is obviously being dismantled despite the appearance of having just landed.

Visible crew/equipment: When Officer Romero and Arthur are alone in the house, handcuffed to the brass shelving unit, as she says, "Help me or I will crush you like a damn bug," a crewmember wearing glasses and a blue shirt is seen crouching on the floor, at the bottom right of the screen. (00:53:05)

Trivia: The voice of the Gators fan, who calls in to the sports radio show, belongs to the film's Director, Barry Sonnenfeld. The voice of that radio show's host belongs to Sonnenfeld's friend, Director/Writer (not for this film), David Koepp. Sonnenfeld's daughter has an uncredited brief cameo as the little blonde girl, in the pink shirt riding a scooter, which Puggy, Nina and Matt run past at the airport. Dave Barry, the author of the novel, upon which this film is based, has a cameo in the boardroom.
