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: Why does the motorcycle cop let Harry and Lloyd go when they still have open beer bottles in the van? He doesn't even give Harry a ticket for speeding at the very least.

Correction: Well, the fact that the cop drank what he thought was an alcoholic beverage while on duty shows the nature of his character. Given this, it's not surprising that he would wave them along after drinking Lloyd's urine.

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.

CocoCami

Corrected entry: After Lloyd returns from the bar after waiting for Mary for hours, he and Harry laugh about the fact that its 10pm she meant to meet him and not 10am. Harry then says "Well you have your night sorted, I'm off to watch a flick" implying that Lloyd had a date with Mary that evening. But Lloyd then puts TurboLax in Harry's drink as Harry goes to get ready to pick up Mary. It was Lloyd who had a date with Mary and not Harry.

pierpp

Correction: Did you watch this film? Lloyd suspects (correctly) that Harry is not going 'to watch a flick', but to meet Mary. He sabotages his plans by putting TurboLax in his drink. This is the plot of the film, not a mistake.

Corrected entry: The 'Gas Man' thinks Harry and Lloyd know who he is because of the notice they left at the door of their apartment which was directed towards the gas man. But he still thinks it's a good idea to hitch a ride on their van. For a guy who thinks Harry and Lloyd have been following him around for weeks, it's not such a good idea.

Correction: Still, it was a human decision that anybody could have made. Does not classify as a movie mistake.

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: When Lloyd is having his dream sequences, some of the settings involve Aspen, or a ski resort; but Lloyd is still under the impression that Aspen is a warm place.

Correction: While awake, though Lloyd may have the mistaken impression that Aspen is warm, it does not discount the fact that when asleep, anything is possible in dreams. So in his dream, the idea of a snowy Aspen, however inaccurate for him, is still only a dream.

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: During the dream sequence when Jim Carrey and Lauren Holly are in the restaurant, when Jim Carrey breaks the guy's arm, there is a "breaking" sound but his arm bends the way it should normally.

Tobin OReilly

Correction: It's Lloyd's dream sequence, normal laws of physics don't have to apply. Remember also, Lloyd is quite stupid. He might think that bending an arm that way would break it.

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.

David Mercier

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.

Grumpy Scot

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.

DvdNut

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.

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)
