Continuity mistake: While Nick and Harold are jogging and discussing the possible buy out of Harold's business they are completely surrounded by fog. For 18 seconds they discuss this further in close-up. When they return to wide shot the fog is completely cleared up around them and is only visible in the distance now. (00:38:35)
