Dumb and Dumber

Continuity mistake: When Lloyd and Harry are in the restaurant notice Lloyd's fork. In the side shot there is no fork, but when it changes to a front shot the fork appears. This happens several times throughout the scene. (00:22:00)

Continuity mistake: At the ball Helen and Harry are talking and in the background you can see Lloyd and his hat is on the bar. A second later he shows off his butt and he is holding his hat. (01:10:29)

Continuity mistake: There is a scene just after Lloyd meets Beth in the bar when Mary is skiing along and looks around for Harry who is still stuck on the ski lift. The shot is comprised of a long shot of her skiing to a grey marker and then a close up of her stopping and looking around. It is obvious in the shot when she comes up to the marker that the woman on the skis has much darker hair than Mary and is her "ski double". (01:13:20)

Continuity mistake: When Mary leaves her briefcase on the airport floor, Jim Carrey is seen running and sliding to the briefcase. In the scene directly preceding that, he is nowhere to be seen, yet instantly he is teleported within 20 feet of the briefcase. (00:09:35)

Continuity mistake: When they have left the cafe without paying, and Lloyd has to pee, Harry's hair is blowing in one shot because the window is down and in the next shot the window is up and his hair is not blowing. This goes back and forth for the duration of the scene. (00:26:00)

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Mary go out on the date to the ski resort, they get into a snowball fight. When Harry is shoving her face in the snow, the first time it shows Mary she is facing one way, but when they show her again she is facing a different way. (01:18:21)

Continuity mistake: When Harry is speaking to the girl at the gas station, he tells her he's going to Aspen and she takes the cigarette she is smoking out of her mouth. When the camera pans to a front view of her jeep in the next shot, the cigarette is back in her mouth and she takes it out again.

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Lloyd first arrive at the truck stop, you can see a man with a white hat leaving the diner after the 18-wheeler passes by. Later on in the scene, the same man is about to exit again.

Continuity mistake: When Mary and Harry are talking about the "Bull-Shit" there is a shot of Mary close up where she is laughing and smiling. Look behind her and you will see a woman in a black and gold glittery dress walk past. Then when the shot changes to both Mary and Harry together the woman is instantly 3 or 4 feet in front of where she was and seems to be engaged in a conversation with someone else already - instantly. (01:06:50)

David Mercier

Continuity mistake: The film appears to begin in the summer. Look at the outside shots in Rhode Island when either Harry or Lloyd are driving; green grass and many leaves on the trees. As they travel further west the landscape appears to be fall. Then finally in Colorado it appears to be the dead of winter.

Nick Connor

Continuity mistake: Right after Lloyd runs into the jetway at the airport, the guy who witnesses his fall moves to the window to watch. He is grinning from ear to ear in his reflection, but immediately has a 'that had to hurt' look in the next shot. (00:10:15)

Continuity mistake: When Lloyd is driving Mary to the airport, at one point he says "What's the matter, nervous about the flight?" When he says this look at the white van in the rear window, it's right up next to the limo. However when the shot cuts to Mary it's already several meters behind them despite the very slow movement the limo has made. (00:04:30)

David Mercier

Continuity mistake: When Lloyd tells Harry to throw some salt over his right shoulder, he puts the salt shaker next to Harry's burger and fries. The next shot shows the salt shaker behind the basket of Harry's food. (00:22:49)

DvdNut

Continuity mistake: When Sea Bass demands to know who hit him with a salt shaker in the diner, we cut back to Harry and Lloyd's table and Lloyd begins pointing at Harry. When the camera angle changes, Harry turns around and Lloyd begins pointing a second time.

Continuity mistake: When Harry delivers the dogs, there is no carpet on the floor in the car. But when the indians are sitting in the car suddenly there is a carpet on the floor. (00:38:55)

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)
