Corrected entry: When the door to Harry and Loyd's apartment is shown from the inside of the apartment, it has an unpainted plywood patch over a missing panel. But when Mental and Shay are reading the "gas man" note, which was pinned to the outside of the same door, It has no panels missing.

Correction: Watch the shot from the apartment interior again. The panel is only on the inside of the door. Just before Lloyd slams it shut, the outside (the side facing out into the corridor) of the door is visible and has no panels missing.

Corrected entry: When Lloyd first goes into the restroom at the gas station, he has to use a restroom key. However, when Harry enters the restroom later to douse his flaming pant leg, he enters the bathroom without the key.

Correction: Like many service station restrooms, the key is simply used to unlock the door. That is why Sea Bass is also able to enter the bathroom after Lloyd, as well as Harry, too, thereafter.

Corrected entry: Once Harry sits on the toilet at Mary's house, he lifts his legs off the floor, and his eyes are closed. Then it switches to a front shot of him a few seconds later, and his eyes are now open.

Correction: It only takes a split second to open one's eyes, not even "a few seconds". No mistake here.

Corrected entry: In the scene at the truck stop when the waitress is taking orders from Harry and Lloyd, in the first shot the waitress has a silver name tag, but in the next shot it is blue.

Correction: If you look closely at the name tag, you can see it's blue, but the reflected light obscures the blue color.

1

Corrected entry: In the scene where Lloyd is in the toilets and reading the graffiti, the shot is cut to him looking at his watch to see if it's 2:15 a.m. If you pause the video and look closely, you will see that it is actually a plastic arm with fake hairs stuck on it. (00:44:15)

Correction: If you have to pause the movie to see the mistake, it is not a valid mistake.

Corrected entry: After Lloyd has the briefcase and looks at the airport flight departure screens, he says "Eeny, meeny, miny, mo." and in the background there is a woman sitting on a bench staring and smiling directly at the camera.

Correction: She is not. Pay close attention to her eyes; she is looking at the other woman sitting on the bench and smiling to her. Also, her head movements implicate that she is having a conversation.

Corrected entry: When Lloyd and Harry are in the hotel room watching TV, they are crying while watching a phone company commercial. The commercial is for Pacific Bell. They are in Aspen. Colorado was a Mountain Bell state (that is to say, back when the phone company in Colorado was still known as "Mountain Bell"). It makes no sense that a "Pacific Bell" commercial would air in Colorado.

Correction: Most of the very, very expensive "deluxe presidential suites" come standard with "Satellite Television Programming" for the TV set. They could have easily been watching a program that was broadcast originally on the coast. Furthermore, some "basic cable" packages include channels from other states as well. For example, I get WGN programming from Chicago on my basic cable, even though I live over 500 miles from there.

Corrected entry: While Harry is walking up the stairs of the ski lodge he turns around when the female undercover agent asks why he never called her. However, she never gave him more than the first three digits of her phone number at the gas station because he lit himself on fire.

Correction: Already submitted and corrected.

Corrected entry: Harry says to Lloyd (about him and Mary going skiing), "Yesterday was one of the best days of my life." Actually it was still the same day, only later at night, because Mary wanted Harry to pick her up that night at 7:45pm, and she left with Lloyd to go get the briefcase, when Harry was in the toilet. They all met up again in Harry and Lloyd's hotel room that night with the gunman there.

Correction: You have to remember the title: Dumb and Dumber. Of course it's the same day, but to Harry, it might seem like the next day as he is supposed to be stupid.

Corrected entry: Lloyd says that the $275,000 IOU inside the suitcase is substitute for the money they spent on a car. He is presumably referring to the red Lamborghini Diablo Harry drives in the movie. But the estimated cost for that particular model of the Lamborghini is not and never has been anywhere close to $275,000.

Correction: Assuming it is a 1994 Diablo, the sticker price that year was $239,000. Add a couple of options, sales tax, title, license, and gas-guzzler, and he probably paid right at $275,000 like Lloyd says.

Corrected entry: In the restaurant scene where Lloyd is fighting with the chef, he rips out the chef's heart and puts it in a bag. Now watch carefully: when he rips it out, you can see the 'hole' and some blood. But after putting the heart in the bag and giving the bag to the chef, you can see that the hole is gone just as he is falling backwards. (00:33:39)

Correction: Being one of my favorite movies, I had to check this out...but if you pause it when he's falling backwards, you can see blood on his shirt. You can't see the hole because it's blocked by the "Doggy Bag." And although it doesn't say anything about blood in the original statement, I still think it should be said.

Corrected entry: When Lloyd goes the wrong way, how does Harry suddenly become smart enough to realize "you drove almost a sixth of the way across the country in the wrong direction"? This would take geographic and mathematical intelligence.

Correction: It doesn't take mathematical intelligence; there is no way Lloyd has driven a sixth of the country. It can't have been more than between 300 and 400 miles, which isn't a sixth of the way across the country. It's another example of their lack of intelligence.

Corrected entry: As Harry and Lloyd are approaching the Colorado border, the law enforcement officials say they have been spotted on I-80 and should be there soon. The next scene shows Harry and Lloyd on a 2-lane road that couldn't be a freeway. (00:48:30)

Correction: I-80 actually IS a 2 lane road out there in the boonies. I drove out to a friend's wedding in Mercer, PA (which is out almost to Ohio) once, and 80 is 2 lanes through a lot of PA.

Corrected entry: The police woman says to Harry near the end: "Hey, Harry, you never called" at the bottom of the stairs just before Harry goes up to the room. How was Harry supposed to call her when he didn't have her number? When she tried to give it to him earlier at the gas station, she gave him half of her old phone number, and before she could give him the new one, she left.

Sam Johnson

Correction: She never was going to give him her number. She is an undercover cop tailing Harry and Lloyd because of their involvement in the kidnapping. She is just getting his attention with an amusing statement.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Lloyd is talking to the person at the bar, the barman gives him another beer. In the first shot there are two bottles on the desk, however when he gets another, there is only one bottle. (01:15:43)

Correction: If you watch closely as the bartender gives him the second beer with his left hand, his right arm is moving as though taking a bottle away.

Corrected entry: Lloyd remarks that he sold some stuff to Billy in (apartment) 4C, yet when the "Gas Man" and his accomplice show up at Lloyd and Harry's apartment, it has a lone "4" on the door. Shouldn't it also have a letter? (00:20:15)

Correction: The apartment I live in is "C5", yet the only time I say "C" is when I talk to the manager or another resident. As far as my mail, I just say apartment 5.

Corrected entry: When Lloyd gets ripped off by the old lady, it is at night, however, when he arrives at the apartment distraught it is daytime. Either Lloyd walked very far to get the "bare necessities" for Harry and him, or there is a plain and simple error.

Correction: It really isn't actually broad daylight. I suppose the reason it looks like the day time is because of the lamp they have in the room. If you notice outside their window, it's darker than what it was before Lloyd left to get the essentials.

Corrected entry: When Harry leaves Mary's house after their date, he shifts the gear of the sports car down one notch. Wouldn't that be reverse?

Correction: On some sports cars, first gear is down.

Corrected entry: A police officer states that Harry and Lloyd were last seen heading west on I-80 towards Colorado. I-80 doesn't actually go into Colorado. (00:43:55)

Correction: I-80 doesn't go into Colorado, but it heads straight towards it, and it almost goes into the state, but it turns away only a few miles at most from the border, and then circles around the north side of the state very close to the border. So the cops could definitely have determined that they were heading towards Colorado, and the waitress probably overheard Harry and Lloyd's conversation with Mental about going to Aspen, and the cop said that he talked to her, so he could have figured where the boys were headed, and the siting report of them verified it.

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)
