Bringing Down the House

Factual error: In Steve Martin's office, when Steve is showing Eugene Levy the woman he thinks he has a date with, Steve is using an Apple Powerbook on his office desk. It cuts to a shot of the two of them looking at the screen, and then a second shot from across the desk. The Powerbook is still on the desk with the top open, but it is not turned on. When a Powerbook is powered on, the white apple on the top cover glows (even in a well lit room). The apple is not glowing.

Factual error: When Missi Pyle gets hung on a door handle after her fight this seems impossible. It would've broken off due to her weight.
