Factual error: When Morty is showing Michael how to use the remote, Michael rewinds to a family vacation in 1976. A childhood friend of his invites everyone over to his parents' RV to watch Three's Company. Three's Company didn't premiere until 1977.

Suggested correction: Although technically this is true, ironically there WERE two pilots for Three's Company filmed in 1976 with some similar and some different cast members, which may or may not of actually aired at the time after being filmed. The 3rd and final pilot with the familiar cast got the show finally rolling in 1977. So the mistake stands, but it could be a bit iffy based on this info.

This mistake does not need correction. This is just trivia that does not impact the mistake. Both pilots were unaired, so they couldn't have watched it on TV. Additionally, this was his summer vacation and the first pilot was taped in May and the second one was taped in November.

Continuity mistake: When Ammer tells Michael that he hasn't yet got the promotion, he's wearing his glasses. Just before Michael 'pauses' him to smack him around, his glasses disappear without him taking them off.

Audio problem: When Michael is caught in a traffic jam he shouts, "Will ya stop talking and fix the sewer". But if you look at the side view mirror, his mouth is not in sync with the words.

Continuity mistake: The ice cream scene at the 4th of July, the daughter is eating a bowl of ice cream that is below the rim of the bowl. The next shot, her bowl is loaded with ice cream.

Continuity mistake: In the breakfast scene Michael is nipping from his coffee cup. Then a close-up on Janine. Michael holds the cup a bit away from him. Again we see Janine. Then Michael puts the cup down to the table. Another shot of Janine (with her hands to her breasts) and then we see Michael again putting his coffee cup down. Then a few seconds later he starts to fill milk into his bowl. A short shot of Janine and Michael is already chewing while he speaks to Janine holding his spoon in his right hand. Then Janine stands up and walks a bit. Michael turns towards her and the spoon is down in his cereals and he has his right hand down beside his right leg. (00:22:50 - 00:23:40)

Continuity mistake: When Mike is fat and pauses time as he is arguing with his ex wife. The other bloke's stance changes from different views.

Continuity mistake: During breakfast with Donna and Janine, the cereal on Michael's spoon disappears, the spoon changes angles, and then the cereal reappears again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the kids are coming downstairs to get a Twinkie, the box changes from Spanish to English from the view of the stairs.

Continuity mistake: When Michael inadvertently pauses his wife as he pauses the documentary her facial expression changes from the close-up to the wide shot.

Continuity mistake: In the final hospital scene, after Ben and Samantha leave, the nurse goes over to talk with a patient in the background. The nurse is just talking to the patient, then we see Michael rip off his oxygen tube and get up. Then we see a shot of the nurse again and he is washing the patient with a sponge of some sort. The nurse then approaches Michael. Then we see a shot of the patient again and the sponge is nowhere to be found.

Other mistake: When Mike stops time to hit his boss, he starts getting off the desk. There's a bottle of water on the desk, however, the water is moving around from Mike moving on the desk. How can the water move if time is frozen/paused?

Other mistake: During the time when they are telling Mike about chemotherapy, you can see the end of his bed. It's way too short for him to be lying down.

Michael Newman: Twinkie. Don't need it. You don't need it, man. You do need a Yodel, though. Good job.

Question: I am officially confused. Corrections on this site by a few people state it is all just a dream. However at the end of the movie, Sandler finds the remote at home with a note from Morty. So is it a dream or not? If so, then what is the deal with the remote at the end of the movie?

Chosen answer: It was not a dream - Adam Sandler just thought it was. Morty left the remote at Michael's house as a way of letting him know that he has been given a second chance.

I believe it was a dream because he comes home and everything is back to normal the kids are still young his dad is living the dog Sundance is still living and his wife isn't with bill the guy that teaches Ben how to swim. He was living in a different kind of reality.

Sorry I typed to fast I meant it was a dream.

Remember, Morty was the Angel of Death. He gave Michael the remote (control) of his life once to do things his way and allowed him to get his earthly material desires. He became CEO of the company but sacrificed all the valuable time he could've spent with his family. At the end, the remote appears to him again. This time it's significance is "temptation" he's being given the chance to take control of things again in real life. Not just in his dream. He knows now the repercussions of wanting the.

... back into our physical body. Remember that God is always in control. Don't take the remote away from him to try to do things your way or you won't like what you find at the end of the Rainbow (Death and regret). What Morty was telling Michael in one scene about the lucky charms metaphor.

Answer: Of course it's all a dream. He falls asleep on the bed at Bed, Bath and Beyond. At the end, he wakes up from the dream on the same bed. The remote and note from Morty at the end is supposed to be the "mystery" of the movie since he learned his lesson throughout the dream and gets a second chance to live normal. Speeding through the tough parts of life is not really a "dream come true" life since you'll miss everything life has to offer.
