Continuity mistake: When Deeds and Ms. Dawson join some people at their table, in a restaurant, there is a big opera singer. In one back shot, you see the opera singer lift his glass to his lips, yet when the shot changes, he is sitting normal, drink down, hands on lap. (00:31:25)

Continuity mistake: When Pam and Deeds kiss outside Pam's apartment, Pam has her right arm around Deeds and her left arm around him too, about halfway down his back. When the shot changes though, Pam is holding Deeds differently. Her right arm is no longer around him, and her left arm is up around his neck. (01:02:05)

Continuity mistake: When Deeds reads a card to everybody in the pizza shop towards the beginning of the movie, his last line, "...even when your bosoms sag down to the floor" causes one of the higher-aged men to cry. However, watch carefully: Deeds reads it, and everyone - including the man - laughs aloud. The very next shot shows him up close and wiping tears from his eyes, a smile being a far cry from on his face.


Continuity mistake: When Pam/Babe walks into the shareholder meeting, in a wide shot Deeds has his head turned and is looking in her direction, yet there is a following closeup of a suprised looking Deeds turning to her direction once again. (01:20:45)

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which the homeless character portrayed by Steve Buscemi is having a conversation with Longfellow, he is eating a slice of his favourite pizza; French Fries & Oreos. In shot in the scene Buscemi takes a bite out of the slice of pizza, and there is one Oreo on the slice, toward the front of it. Then the shot goes to Longfellow for a moment, and in the next shot of Buscemi, the Oreo is suddenly at the other end of the slice. The Oreo continues moving from the front to the back of the slice throughout the scene. (00:11:25)

More trivia for Mr. Deeds

Chosen answer: Helicopter performance is dependent on a number of factors, including air density. As altitude increases, air density decreases and the performance of the helicopter falls as well. At the height of Mt Everest, the air density has fallen to a sufficient degree that most helicopters would be unable to function (few helicopters are capable of functioning above 20,000 feet, nine thousand feet lower than the summit of Everest).
