Dumb and Dumber

Continuity mistake: After Mary removes Harry's tongue from the pole her ski out fit is blue when before that it was black.

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Lloyd are leaving Providence, in the first shot of the highway we see them driving on Route 146. In the next shot showing the Highway, they are driving on Route 95 South. There is no way they can be driving on both highways at the same time, and, if they could, they would be driving in opposite directions at the same time.

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of the movie at Lloyd and Harry's apartment during the scene when Harry is behind the couch yelling at Lloyd about going to Aspen you can see an empty beer bottle, when Harry walks around the Couch again the beer bottle has moved.

Revealing mistake: When Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are fighting at the park over the briefcase, the snow is obviously foam or some other material. The same thing also happens right when they get to Aspen and walking from the street on to the curb, the snow moves. (00:59:24)

Continuity mistake: When Nicholas Andre shoots Harry twice in the chest, the gun is empty after the two shots. The camera then moves to Harry getting up and shooting back. When the camera returns to Nicholas, the gun is not empty. (01:32:25)

Other mistake: In the brief scene in which Nicholas Andre and J.P. Shay are talking about the killing of the owl at the preservation society ball, if you look very closely out the very bottom of the window, at the very end of the short scene (right after Andre says, "Their guys aren't just anybody, they're good"), you can catch a brief glimpse of part of the box containing the victim who is trying to escape (this box was completely excluded from the film).

Revealing mistake: When Harry is talking to the lady at the gas station, and his legs catch fire, you can see the burn gel on his pants.

Pam-I-am

Continuity mistake: After Harry and Lloyd start gagging over the atomic peppers, we see a brief shot in which everyone else in the restaurant looks at them (and the waitress suddenly appears in that shot as well). But in very the next shot (back to Harry and Lloyd, still gagging), nobody is looking at them (and the waitress, who was there just a moment ago, disappears).

Revealing mistake: When Harry is lying on the bed at the end - you can see he's not wearing a bullet proof vest as the extra bulk they cause is not visible on his torso. However once he's shot, the bulk is visible under his shirt for the remainder of the scene.

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie when Lloyd gets his wallet trapped in the newspaper machine, it shows his wallet, however in the very next shot his wallet is not there.

Visible crew/equipment: When they are riding the mini-bike as "Where I Find My Heaven" is playing, the camera goes towards the sky. Look to the far left, you see a small looking man in blue overhauls.

Continuity mistake: When the "gas man" falls to the floor due to the atomic peppers that Harry and Lloyd sneaked into his burger, Harry and Lloyd laugh at him, and Lloyd even points at him. Then he stops pointing at him and looks at Harry. But only a moment later, in the very beginning of the next shot (a close-up of Harry and Lloyd), Lloyd is instantly pointing again.

Continuity mistake: When Harry and Lloyd start singing "Mockingbird," we see a front shot of the "gas man" getting annoyed and gritting his teeth. Then it switches to a side shot, and his annoyed expression is now different, instantly.

Continuity mistake: When Lloyd drops Mary off at the airport, the interior of the car is different once Lloyd gets back in.

Revealing mistake: When Harry and Lloyd are reading the newspaper about the International Preservation Society, the exact same paragraphs are repeated many times throughout the paper.

Other mistake: When Lloyd is in the bar and he has just said "Everything has to be perfect", he gives a big sigh and the camera is facing his front. Then the camera is facing the barman and he gives the same sigh. You can see from how his face changes from smiling to a frown.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at Harry and Lloyd's apartment, one of them opens a beer and throws the cap on the floor. In different shots the beer cap moves from place to place on the floor. (00:12:06)

Audio problem: In the very beginning Lloyd opens a bottle of beer in their apartment. When the cap falls on the floor it makes a clinking sound as if it landed on tile, however, their floor is carpeted.

Visible crew/equipment: When Jim Carrey slides in the airport to pick up the briefcase, he stops at a strip of red tape which marks the place where he should stand up.

Revealing mistake: When Lloyd comes back for Harry on the scooter, it has two small training wheels on the back. They disappear in the montage of the ride to Aspen and reappear when they pull into town.

Lloyd: This didn't come out of our travel fund.
Harry: Oh.
Lloyd: Yeah, I was able to raise 25 extra bucks before we left.
Harry: Where did you get 25 extra bucks?
Lloyd: I sold some stuff, to Billy on 4C.
Harry: The blind kid?
Lloyd: [Laughing.] Yeah, yeah.
Harry: What did you sell him Lloyd?
Lloyd: You know, stuff.
Harry: What kinda stuff?
Lloyd: Few baseball cards, a sack of marbles, [coughs.] Petey.
Harry: Petey? You sold my dead bird to a blind kid? Lloyd, wh- he- wha- Petey didn't even have a head!
Lloyd: Harry, I took care of it.
