Dumb and Dumber

Character mistake: When Lloyd is reading the paper about Mary, he doesn't know the word "The." But earlier in the movie, he reads the word "Samsonite" on the case and the message in the restroom from sea bass, and later on he reads the newspaper article as he leaves the bar.

Suggested correction: That is not a mistake, character or other - it is part of the humor in the movie. It is an example of his "dumbness." It isn't even a "deliberate mistake" - it is the intentional use of a simple word to make the way he reads ironic. If he can read the word "Samsonite", isn't it silly or funny when he struggles with "the"?

Continuity mistake: When Lloyd tackles Mary on the hotel stairs, she is wearing black pantyhose. By the time they get to the hotel room, she has miraculously changed into grey tights. (01:28:45)
