Mr. Destiny

Revealing mistake: When Larry is camping in the tree outside Ellen's house, if you look at his face before he falls it is a stuntman falling, not James Belushi. (01:03:35)

Continuity mistake: Toward the end, when James Belushi swerves to miss his dog in the middle of the street he crashes his car into a parked car and then roll to a stop. Notice before the camera cuts to a frontal shot of the wrecked car, that there is a huge spider crack in the windshield, as if James hit it with his head. This huge spider crack then disappears once the camera cuts to the frontal shot and the windshield is in perfect shape. (01:33:45)

Trivia: Ellen Robertson's dog is named Hercules. Hercules was the name of Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in his first movie, and Arnold also starred with Linda Hamilton (who played Ellen Robertson/Burrows) in The Terminator and Terminator 2. This was done again in Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines which had a scene with a cat named Hercules. (01:02:50 - 01:11:25)

Question: Was it all a dream to him? Did he have a vision that his life was going to be like that?

Answer: Mike, as advertised, was Mr. Destiny. When Jim Belushi asked him if he was an angel, Mike replied that when Belushi is about to make a decision, he's the little voice in his head that helps. At the end of the film, when Mike tells the teenage Belushi that everything is going to work out, the kid replies, "What do you know?"

Thanks then Mike the bartender must have been an angel.
