Continuity mistake: This error occurs when Tom finds a deer on the side of the road, slices it open, and wears its skin as a suit. After he is dancing with it on, he gets hit by the big truck. Now, if you look closely, when he gets hit, one of his shoes fall off, but when the camera gets closer to him lying on the ground, he has both shoes on his feet.
Continuity mistake: When Tom puts his father to sleep with the tranquilizer, his father has a goatee. When he wakes up and takes off the bandage on his neck he has a full beard from a week of sleep. Tom's father then goes into the bathroom and notices the beard. While he's in the bathroom he feels something move. He leaves the bathroom and walks to the door to find he is in Pakistan. When they show Tom's father, he has a goatee again. And it's a goatee the rest of the movie.
Continuity mistake: When Jim destroys the half-pipe the level of destruction varies from shot to shot. After he drives through it it looks completely flattened. The next shot shows a 1/4 section of it survived. The following shot shows a different 1/4 section of the ramp survived. The last and parting shot shows the 1/4 section that survived in an earlier shot.
Continuity mistake: When Jim Brody confronts Darren outside of the bank to find where Gordy went, he kicks his cast to get him to talk. Jim kicks the cast multiple times. As the shots change we can see crumbled bits of cast fall to the ground, then the ground is clean, then the bits of cast are on the ground again. At the end of the scene, the ground is clean.
Continuity mistake: In the scene near the end in Pakistan with the house on the truck, in one shot Gordy jumps down from the truck and runs forward, then he immediately looks up as the rope snaps and the house falls. It then cuts to a wider shot where the house falls on him, and he is standing at the side of the truck near the rear, nowhere near where he was in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: When Gord and Betty are in the restaurant, Gord shouts down the phone at 'Bob'. From the angle facing Betty, you can hear Gord shouting but he isn't moving his mouth, is sitting up straight and has nothing in his hands. In the very next shot Gord has food in his hands and is leaning over the table.
Continuity mistake: The magical moving bottle: After Freddy gets picked up by child services, Gordy is down in the basement working on his drawings. Jim comes down and is drunk. He sets a bottle of Wild Turkey in the middle of the drawings in the middle of the little table. A few seconds later the bottle has moved to the edge of the table so that Jim can pick up the drawings, criticize them then tear them up.
Continuity mistake: After Gordo and Jim are captured in Pakistan they are at a table in a drinking contest. Jim chugs a bottle of liquor until it is almost gone. When he starts to put the bottle down there is still liquor in the bottle. As he sets the bottle down the shot changes and the bottle is empty.
Continuity mistake: During family counseling, Gord throws the bust through the window which breaks the glass and the wooden support frame of the panes, and there's nothing sticking out. When he climbs up to jump out, one of the wooden pieces is now sticking out. It's gone again in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gord first meets Betty at the hospital, it shows Betty flipping the creamer. She flips it once more as Gord walks towards her. The creamer lands right way up, the scene cuts and Gord says, "Hi, iI' looking for my friend Darren." The creamer is now upside down.
Continuity mistake: When Gord is showing his drawings and ideas for his cartoon outside of the restaurant to the producer. The producer gets in his convertible then tosses all of Gord's drawings back at him making them all fall on the ground. But when he pulls away the drawings are all held in Gord's hands without showing him pick them up.
Continuity mistake: When Gord receives his car in the beginning of the movie the sky looks really dark, and the ground is wet as if it were raining, and in a couple of shots of Freddy it looks as if it is raining in the background, yet in the previous and following scenes it is bright and sunny.
