Factual error: When Harry is standing on the ceiling fan, the young boy pulls the lever backwards to increase the speed. If you read the side of the lever, you can see that the boy is actually pulling the lever to the slow direction. (00:40:30)

Audio problem: When Harry and Nikki are driving in the vintage speedster with no brakes, Nikki is heard saying "same old family crap", but her lips mouth "same old family shit".

Other mistake: When Harry is being spun round on the ceiling fan you can see that they aren't moving fast enough to hold his body in a stretched out position,especially considering his bulk.

Visible crew/equipment: After Mrs. McIntyre sits down and asks about the pictures, John Candy asks "Did I get these pictures?", and an orange falls from the tree onto the desk. After that a gloved hand is seen rolling the orange off the desk. (00:09:00)

Question: When Harry finds Eliot tied up, he removes the tape and tells him that the kidnappers have been caught. Why did Eliot confess to being the actual mastermind behind the kidnapping? Harry had no idea it was Eliot behind it all so he could have gotten away with it if he didn't say anything.

Answer: Eliot mistakenly believed that Harry had figured out what his part was in the kidnapping, and, exasperated by Harry's dumb luck, Eliot stupidly confessed. He was then arrested.
