Mr. Deeds

Factual error: In the scene when Deeds rescues the woman from the fire, right before him and her jump out the window, all seven cats were rescued, but we can visually see a black cat on the left of the screen on top of the stove. Deeds and the woman jump from the window, leaving the black cat on top of the stove to burn in the fire. All seven cats were obviously not rescued.

Factual error: Mount Everest does not look like that nor would anyone have been able to reach the top during daylight, for the winds would be dead strong and everyone there would've been blown off the top. (00:02:00)

Factual error: When flying from Mandrake Falls to NYC they stop at a Wendy's; the commentary claims this is Danbury, CT. Actually it was in the small town of Carmel, NY, about 15 miles from Danbury.

Factual error: At the start of the film, in the shots with Mount Everest, climbers aren't clipped onto fixed ropes. On all the biggest peaks on the planet, climbers will always used ropes fixed onto the mountain, and because they are attached to it, it can stop a fall. But in Mr. Deeds, this doesn't happen. (00:01:20)

Factual error: When we see Deed's Uncle being lifted off the summit of Mount Everest, you see him holding onto a very spiky and rocky summit. The summit is not like this at all. It is, in fact a much rounder shape, and not rocky. It is permanently covered in snow, therefore being something your body can get around and hold onto. (00:02:05)

Factual error: At the start of the film, when they are all climbing Everest, they are all seen without ski goggles. Without these, they would go snow-blind. This is only temporary blindness, but the climbers would have been more sensible than to not wear goggles, wouldn't they? (00:01:10)

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, directly after Deeds pulls Babe out of the ice cold water, is it just me or is her Old-Navy-type jacket still dry? (It still looks light colored and fuzzy) Should it not be wet considering her whole body was just in water? (01:14:25)

More quotes from Mr. Deeds

Trivia: Sticking with the To Kill A Mockingbird references, in the scene where Deeds and Pam are outside of Pam's "apartment" and the old lady and dog walk out. She calls the lady "Mrs. Finch" and the dog "Atticus". Atticus Finch was the main characters name in To Kill A Mockingbird.

Question: This is a two-part question: 1. How does Winona Ryder get hold of the journal of Sandler's uncle? 2. Why'd she dye her hair?

Answer: Babe Bennett stole Preston Blake's journal from Longfellow Deeds. As for why she dyed her hair, it was probably part of her disguise. She was a TV journalist pretending to be someone else (as Pam Dawson) so she could get a story on Longfellow.
