Deliberate mistake: During the ice storm, Hoke brings Miss Daisy coffee because he figured her stove was out. A few scenes before that they are frying chicken on a gas stove. Gas doesn't go out during power outages.
Revealing mistake: On the way to the party, near the end, they are supposed to be in Alabama when the car gets pulled over, but the officer's badge, shoulder patch, and car all say Georgia State Police. (00:51:45)
Hoke Colburn: Oscar said you needin' somebody to drive for yo' family... now, what I'm 'on be doin'? Takin' your children to school, drivin' your wife to the beauty parlor?
Boolie Werthan: I don't have any children. Don't have the time.
Hoke Colburn: Aw, that's a shame! Course, you still a young man, so I wouldn't worry 'bout it too much.
Boolie Werthan: Thank you, I won't.
