Mr. Deeds

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)

Other mistake: In the scene where Winona Ryder falls in the ice, she can't swim and she's flailing around and having trouble staying above water. But when Deeds runs down to her, all of a sudden, she's able to stay afloat for a minute or two before completely submerging under water.

Other mistake: During the fire scene, while saving the "last cat" you can see a 8th black cat behind the woman on top of the stove. (00:52:43)

Other mistake: When Deeds is rescuing Miss Keeling's cats, there are two mistakes. There are smoke and flames inside her apartment - both of them should be coughing a lot from the smoke. Oxygen gets displaced in a fire. Second mistake is why isn't any of the fireman inside the building coming up to her apartment or even fighting the fire? There is no way any fire dept or police dept is going to let bystanders just walk up to the scene as Deeds and Pam did.

Other mistake: Just before Deeds enters the room where he punches the quarterback, you see Chuck Cedar talking to all his associates. While speaking to them he is speaking in perfect English and they all seem to understand. When Deeds punches the quarterback Chuck has to explain to some people in French as if they didn't speak English.

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)

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?

Rob245

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.
