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: At the beginning of the movie, Harry's van has bucket seats, yet later on when the "gas-man" rides along, he is sitting on a bench seat in-between Harry and Lloyd. (00:38:00)

Suggested correction: Maybe the bench-seat folds down; out of the way somehow?

There's no evidence of this, especially since we see the floor where the bottles are. And it doesn't explain where the bucket seats went.
