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.


Continuity mistake: Peter picks up Georgey, who is holding his Gameboy, spins him around and sits Georgey on the kitchen counter. In the next shot, the Gameboy is gone. It's not on the counter or in his pocket. (00:21:35)
