Continuity mistake: In the very first scene in the movie, where we see Steve listening to the motivational tape, he is wearing a red tie with polka dots. Then, when he is shown walking toward his boss' office and he falls, you can see that his red tie has changed to a gold tie. When he is in his superior's office you can see that it is back to red, and when he goes to find Stavi in the restroom the tie is gold again. (02:00:00)

Question: Can somebody please tell me the joke that Lynn keeps trying to tell.

Answer: The grandmother takes her grandson to the beach and falls asleep, while she is sleeping a huge wave comes in and sweeps the boy out to sea. Grandma wakes up to find the boy gone and begins to pray "Lord, if you bring him back, I will do anything you want." Another huge wave comes in and deposits the boy safe and sound in front of the grandmother and she looks to heaven and says "he had a hat on, you know!"
