Revealing mistake: Towards the end when Archie is driving Wanda to the flat in his car, during the shot when she asks him to "say something in Italian" you can see John Cleese is trying desperately hard to keep a straight face (and not altogether succeeding).

Continuity mistake: After Ken reverses the steamroller after running Otto over with it, you can see a red patch signifying his splattered body in front of the roller. However, a few scenes later, Otto is seen alive. (Otto was originally meant to die, until test audience feedback influenced a change of mind on the part of the filmmakers.)
