Continuity mistake: After the grenade sets off the box of grenades, and the subsequent explosions demolish the building, Millbarge says "I'll get the horse." Trouble is, throughout all of the gunfire and the explosions, there is no sign of the horse; it would have run off somewhere. When he gets the horse, it's tied up right next to the now demolished building. It would have been killed by the gunfire and/or the explosions.
Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd make it to the nuclear missle. They put in the codes, and then realize that they were sent to start World War III. Everyone then pairs off in order to "go out with a bang". While in bed with his love interest, Aykroyd has a epiphany about source programmable guidance. They figure out how to change the course of the missle and save the world. In the end, Aykroyd, Chase, Aykroyd's love interest and the Russian missle crew are shown ending the Cold War by playing a game of Risk in DC.
Trivia: Another notable cameo appearance is made by the special effects legend Ray Harryhausen in the role of Dr. Marston.
