The Cable Guy

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the toilet where Chip (Jim Carrey) beats up Robin's date (Owen Wilson), you can see throughout the whole of the fight that Owen Wilson is either laughing, or trying not to laugh.

Continuity mistake: During the "Midnight Express" scene, Chip opens his shirt and presses his chest against the glass. The shot moves to Steven, and as we pan back to Chip, he is sitting, phone in hand, with his shirt buttoned. (01:09:05)
