Dr. Dolittle

Other mistake: When the film starts, Dolittle drinks from a yellow cup, the angle changes to behind his shoulder and it's perfectly obvious the cup is empty. Then, despite this, he keeps sipping and moving his mouth all the time.

Other mistake: When all the animals visit Dolittle at his apartment and he turns on the light in the hallway, you hear a click and the lights turn on, but there is no light switch.

Continuity mistake: When John returns from the hospital, Maya is sitting down, then stands up. The camera then goes onto John, then back to Maya, then she stands up again.

More quotes from Dr. Dolittle

Trivia: Eddie Murphy had a big problem while working on this movie: He is very squeamish about most animals. It is even so serious that he flatly refused to do a scene involving an alligator. Hence, most shots with animals were done via blue-screen technique.

Answer: Geno deliberately broke Mark's nose during the party after Mark made a snide remark. After the party, when Mark suggested a way to have John committed and still get their money, Geno had enough of Mark's ignorance and punched him in the nose again to add further insult to injury.
