Corrected entry: When Bette Midler is reading the newspaper down in the basement and watching TV at the same time, the guy on TV says that the bedroom killer strikes again. And on the back of the newspaper it says the bedroom killer strikes again. If it just happened how could it be in that paper.

Correction: Easy. The killer strikes late in the evening or at night, and the body is discovered before the 5.00am deadline most afternoon newspapers use, so the story makes the papers. The story is also reported on television throughout the day, and of course it features in that evening's news bulletin.

Corrected entry: When Danny DeVito goes to the morgue to see if the body they found matches his wife's (Midler). He goes and sees this body and he says it looks like her, a lot like her. And she looks nothing like Bette Midler.

Correction: He doesn't want his wife back, so by falsely IDing the body, the police stop searching. It doesn't matter if they look alike.

Corrected entry: At the end, the cops are chasing Judge Reinhold and chase him from downtown L.A. to the Santa Monica pier. He escapes by driving the car into the water and letting the body of the Bedroom Killer, who'd died in his house, be "switched" for his. Only problem is, as soon as anyone did an autopsy, they would've been able to tell that he was dead before he hit the water, therefore not the guy the cops were chasing.

Correction: By the time that the cops discovered this, they would be long gone so it really doesn't matter.

When Danny DeVito brings home the 'bigger dog' he says for the new dog to go eat the little dog that always bothers him. He lets the dog go and the dog goes after the little one. But when they show the dog chasing the little one he almost runs right past him. There must have been a trainer on the other side of the set calling the dogs to come over because he wasn't chasing the little dog.
