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)

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.

Factual error: When Lloyd drops Mary off at the airport, he watches her leave and then hits a parked car, inflating the airbag. First, the Cadillac Brougham Lloyd is driving was never available with a driver-side airbag, and secondly airbags are not designed to inflate after such a low-speed impact.

Audio problem: Just before Lloyd and Harry set out for Aspen on the mini bike, they clumsily attempt a high five. At this point Lloyd asks Harry if he still wants to go to Aspen, but when he says, "Oh yeah" his lips are forming altogether different words. (00:55:00)

Other mistake: In the scene where Lloyd hears footsteps approaching his bathroom stall, he locks the door so that Sea Bass can't enter without forcing it open, as seen in the following shots. But if you look closely at the space between the partitions as Lloyd turns the locking handle, you can see how the bolt moves only halfway between the door and frame thus never actually locking. (00:48:05)

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)

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)

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.

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"?

KeyZOid

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)

Other mistake: On the subtitles for the UK "Uncut" DVD (I'm not sure if this applies to other "Unrated/Uncut" DVDs), the subtitles mix up the character names during one shot. As Lloyd goes in the wrong direction, the film cuts to a shot from behind the pair. Harry says that he "expected the Rocky mountains to be a little rockier than this." The subtitles incorrectly state that this line was said by Lloyd. Lloyd's response that "John Denver is full of shit" is also incorrectly attributed to the wrong character; the subtitles say Harry said that.

Lloyd: What do you mean you don't bet? Wussy! Wussy!
Harry: I never have and I never will.
Lloyd: Yeah, right. I bet you twenty bucks I can get you gambling before the end of the day.
Harry: No way.
Lloyd: I give you three to one odds.
Harry: No.
Lloyd: Five to one?
Harry: No.
Lloyd Ten to one?
Harry: You're on.
[Lloyd and Harry both shake hands and smile.]
Lloyd: I'm gonna get you.
Harry: Nuh-uh.
Lloyd: I don't know how, but I'm gonna get you.
Harry: Nuh-uh.

Trivia: In the bar scene Lloyd sees the newspaper clipping on the wall and says "No way! We landed on the moon?" This wasn't in the script - Jim Carrey improvised the line and it was left in the movie.
