Correction: Ben's cue stick goes flying, Kammy turns around with her cue stick in her hand. She shoves her stick into his hands before walking away. Ben's holding Kammy's cue stick in the shot where she's walking out of the bar.

Correction: Buck is holding the cue left by Kammy after she spins around to confront him.

Corrected entry: After John Candy eats the old 96er and they return to the cabin he runs into the bathroom to vomit. If you look at Dan Aykroyd you can see him counting down on when the cast should go running out.

Correction: When Dan Aykroyd is counting down, it's not a cue to run but when John Candy is going to barf.

Corrected entry: When John Candy gets hit in the nose with the golf ball, there is no blood, no bruising, nothing. His nose would have been broken by the speed that ball was going yet when you see him in the rest of the movie, his eyes are not blacked, he has no swelling and doesn't even seem to have been hit.

Correction: How do you know his nose would have been broken? I've been hit in the nose by objects the size of a golf ball on my face while riding a motorcycle at 75 and more mph, and never had a broken nose or major bruising.

Corrected entry: When Chet is water skiing, when he stops and is waiving to the crowd (before falling into the water), you can hear someone say "John Candy ladies and gentlemen".

Correction: I watched this scene with the subtitles on, and the commentator actually says "What a great show, what a champion."

Corrected entry: When Roman is getting ready to leave with his family after he and Chet get into the argument, he tells Chet that he overheard him talking to "Kate and Connie's dad" in the john at their wedding, and he supposedly heard Chet call him a "crooked S.O.B." Later in the film, when Roman comes back to give Chet his check back (because he feels guilty), he says that he never heard Chet and his "brother" talking that night. Brother, not father as he said earlier in the film.

Correction: This is a character mistake. Roman acknowledges that he made up the entire story about Chet and the "Dad". When he admits his lie, he simply wasn't remembering his own lie and said "brother" instead.

Corrected entry: When Buck is playing pool in the arcade with Ben he 'assaults' Cammie with his cue. She spins around flinging his cue across the room. The next shot she is staring him down as he is holding his cue again. (00:34:30)

Correction: Actually, it's sort of hard to miss because I almost thought the same thing, but right before she leaves, she actually hands him her cue and that's why he is shown holding another cue.

Corrected entry: When John Candy is telling his bear story, he first says he pointed the rifle at the bear then he says he pointed the shotgun.

Correction: Character mistake.
