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.

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?

Revealing mistake: When Deeds rescues the last cat from the fire, if you look closely, you can see the fire-proof glove he has on his hand.

xx:xx:xx

Deliberate mistake: Am I REALLY supposed to believe that a helicopter is capable of hovering above the top of Mt Everest? [In the DVD specials, the filmmakers say that they're absolutely aware that it's not possible for a helicopter to hover above Mt Everest. They just thought it would be a funny scene if a helicopter pulled the dead guy away from the mountain.]

Continuity mistake: The most flame retardant box of cereal ever! When Deeds saves the woman from the burning building, there is a box of cereal next to the window that is on fire, and only on fire at the top of the box. The scene takes three or four minutes, yet through it all the fire never spreads to the rest of the box or dies out. The top just keeps on burning. Product placement, methinks...

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Deeds is tossing the cats out the window, he throws a black cat with white paws which gets caught by a dog. The dog runs by a guy who suddenly has the cat in his hands without bending over to pick it up. Not only that, but the cat has become grey with black stripes.

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.

At one point one of the candles appears to be half the size of the other, but later it is mysteriously longer and almost the same size. The candles should gradually grow shorter during the scene, not longer.

Hamster

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.

You can also tell, because he walks past the old man twice.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

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.

xx:xx:xx

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?

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Deeds is in the pizza place before he finds out about his inheritance, Murph is standing there with him holding a blue Pepsi cup. It switches to Deeds then when it is back on Murph, he is holding a beer mug and he continues to hold this throughout the scene.

Add time

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.

Audio problem: When Deeds says "Wow, I'm going to be the first person to leave here since Jimmy McNally went to Disney world", his mouth is out of sync when he says it.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Deeds hands Crazy Eyes the french fries and Oreo pizza in the box. The shot cuts to Cedar and Cecil for two seconds but when the shot cuts back to Crazy Eyes, the slice of pizza is already in his hand.

Continuity mistake: The second cat that Deeds rescues is a gray and black tabby with white paws, but when it is about to hit the catcher, it's turned into a ginger cat. When a man comes out of the manhole with the cat in his arms, it's a gray and white tabby with dark paws.

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.

Add time

Revealing mistake: Somebody has already pointed out that the footage of Deeds throwing the cats out of the window is obviously not caught on Pam's camera. In addition, notice that there is no guttering/pole to the left of Mrs. Keeling's flat window - it is on the right. Yet on the TV footage, there is a metal pole to the left of her window. Another point is that Mrs. Keeling's flat is on the corner of a street, yet when we see footage of the cats flying out of the window, her flat isn't at the corner of a street, it's in the centre of a row of flats.

Continuity mistake: When Deeds punches the quarterback in Chuck's office, the quarterback falls to the floor and lands by a carpet, but isn't laying on it. Yet in the following closeup, he is laying on the carpet.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When Jan and Pam are fighting, you can tell for most of the stunts Winona Ryder isn't doing them, and it's a double. For instance when she runs into Jan, and gets knocked to the floor, and when she gets thrown into a table. This is confirmed on the commentary too.

Audio problem: When Deeds delivers the pizzas to the three old woman sitting on the bench, you hear the voice of one of them saying "Yummy, yummy!" Yet none of the woman's mouths move to that sentence.

Audio problem: In Winchestertonfieldville, Iowa, Deeds and Pam find the house with blue shutters and a red door, that Pam had made up.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

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.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

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.
