RV

Continuity mistake: In the shot after Robin Williams has been sprayed to wash off the crap from the RV he is bone dry after the spraying is complete. They only show his upper body at this point but the spraying would have been over his entire body.

Continuity mistake: When bike riding Bob grabs hold of the Gornicke bus ladder, his hands grip different rungs between multiple shots.

Continuity mistake: When Bob is thrown to the ground, and the RV drives over him, in the overhead shot the tire tracks on the dirt run the entire length of his body. In the next shot, however, the tire tracks only begin beside Bob's head.

Revealing mistake: When Bob has difficulty with his seat belt at the start of the road trip, the side-view mirrors have a translucent finish, just as in other shots throughout the film; however, the mirrors' surfaces are normal in the rest of the shots. Deliberately done to obscure the reflection of the crew.

Continuity mistake: When the RV rolls into the lake, the side-view mirror is intact. Next shot, as Bob rushes to rescue the sinking RV, the entire side-view mirror is suddenly gone. Later, after they pulled the RV from the lake, that side-view mirror is intact again.

01:15:35 - 01:29:55

Revealing mistake: After the RV rolls over Bob, in the overhead shot as he lies on the ground, there are two tire tracks - one to Bob's left and another to his right. Problem is that the RV has four rear tires, which actually should have left the imprint of four tire tracks.

Continuity mistake: As Bob hangs onto the Gornicke ladder, when the bicycle falls in the first shot it falls to its left; however, in the next shot the bicycle falls to its right.

Continuity mistake: After all four go sliding down the mud, at the bar when Jamie takes the knotted cherry stem out of her mouth to show Carl, the stem differs in the next close-up.

Factual error: When the family is beginning their trip, Bob has difficulty putting the RV in gear. We hear gears grinding despite the fact that the vehicle obviously has an automatic transmission (as evidenced by the column shifter). Automatic transmissions do not contain the same type of gearbox as manual transmissions, and it is impossible for an automatic to create a gear-grinding noise.

00:13:30

Revealing mistake: When Bob is on the bus' roof there are interior shots of the bus and all its right side (viewer's left) sliding metal framed windows are visible and intact. After Travis stops short, in the following exterior shots four of the double sliding windows have been deliberately removed from their tracks, so the camera's view of the kids is unobstructed.

01:23:10

Revealing mistake: When Bob hangs upside down on the Gornicke windshield, in the shot facing the bus as he begins to fall, we can see the driver's and front passenger's seats and Travis, his wife, and Jamie are all gone. Of course they are back in the following shot. (Only visible on fullscreen DVD.)

Revealing mistake: When Bob throws pitches to Carl while he barbecues, the close-up of the grill shows Bob's arm holding the tongs as he fiddles with the food. Problem is, it is not Robin William's notoriously hairy arm and hand in the close-up. Things on the grill differ between shots as well.

Continuity mistake: When the RV speeds along at 12 MPH behind the tractor, the shadows keep changing. In the interior shot the shadows are cast to the right of the tractor, but in the exterior shot, as the RV passes, the long shadows are cast to the left of the tractor.

Continuity mistake: After the Big Rolling Turd has rolled backwards over the grocery carts, in the shot of the RV heading down the highway the back center window curtain is hardly open. In the following interior shots, as they sing, the entire curtain is open, but in the last exterior shot it is hardly open again.

00:17:15

Revealing mistake: The Munro's RV has a large pop-out (slide-out) on its left side, behind the driver. When the pop-out is closed one side wall should be directly behind the driver's seat, but that wall is gone - it has been deliberately removed. As a side note, when the Munros rush to leave before Mary Jo Gornicke reaches them, that wall (with a small window) is seen in the exterior shot, as it slides in.

00:19:15 - 00:39:30

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Bob is on top of the Gornecke's RV, and they stop suddenly, you can see that the gates of the Alpine beverages company are a distance away. However when they walk around the front of the bus in the next shot, it is as though they pulled up right in front of them.

01:19:50

Continuity mistake: When Mary Jo hangs out the bus window shouting, "Pull over..." not only does her hair go from windblown and messy to neat between shots, her pink scarf/headband disappears and reappears.

00:57:40

Continuity mistake: When the Gornickes get ready to sing for the Munros, Earl gives Billy the red kazoo, which is seen in the front shots, but in the side shots Billy holds nothing.

00:33:55

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Mary Jo begins walking to the RV at 6:00 AM, Bob and Carl remove the tire blocks outside, while Jamie closes the "stupid pop-out thing" inside. In the exterior shot, as it slides in, Bob is sitting with his hand on the steering wheel - though it isn't until two shots later that Bob actually gets back to the driver's seat.

Other mistake: After Todd phones Bob and tells him about the rinkle-dinkle regarding Larry's request, when the Munros sing about the Rolling Turd, in the close-up, as the RV drives past the camera, the sideview mirror is deliberately turned all the way around so as not to see the crew's reflection. This also occurs when Bob asks the Trooper about the traffic jam around Mt. Watson.

01:14:00

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Bob speaks to the entire Alpine company, with the Gornickes watching, all their shadows move 180° to their right from the start of Bob's speech to Todd's flip.

01:26:45

Continuity mistake: When Bob passes the tractor, in the exterior shot, as he just misses the truck the back window curtain is shut, yet, in the previous and following interior shots, that curtain is wide open.

00:41:05

Super Grover Premium member

Revealing mistake: When the Munros begin their trip, as Bob makes the sharp right turn the RV's pop-out begins to open directly behind him, and its left wall is missing - we can actually see the RV's window at the opposite side, through the opening.

00:15:25

Continuity mistake: When Bob drives up Diablo Pass and ends up teetering on the mountain, his seatbelt is strapped across his chest. After the first close-up of the speedometer, his seatbelt is off as his foot steps on the accelerator, but after second close-up of the speedometer his seatbelt is still on.

01:09:45

Continuity mistake: When the Gornicke kids point paint ball guns at the Munro RV, Jamie screams, and when Bob dives to the floor his arm rest goes down and up between shots, while he is ducking.

00:58:00

Continuity mistake: When the RV is stuck behind the slow moving tractor, as the RV tries to pass, in some shots there is only a single yellow line and in some there are double lines, it goes back and forth.

Audio problem: After reaching Alpine via the Gornicke bus, when Bob says, "Some of my behavior on this trip might be misconstrued as an insult," Bob's mouth/jaw does not match most of his words.

01:25:10

Continuity mistake: After the Big Rolling Turd runs over the grocery carts, Bob's shirt goes from having four buttons buttoned up, then to five, back to four, then back to five again.

00:16:20

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: At the start of the road trip, when Bob tries to maneuver and turn the RV around on their street, the interior shots looking out and the exterior shots do not match up in consecutive shots, regarding the homes and gardens, etc that are seen.

00:13:45

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Bob drives up Diablo Pass and also when the RV teeters on the mountain, in the exterior shots the back curtains are closed, but in the interior shots they are wide open.

Visible crew/equipment: On the highway, after the Gornickes were unsuccessful at returning the laptop, when the RV takes the exit in the rear shot the crew's location set lights are reflected on the RV's surface.

00:58:00

Super Grover Premium member

Visible crew/equipment: When everyone is singing their own song (except Robin Williams), the last shot of this scene shows the back of the RV. As the camera pans down, you can see several cars reflected in the window, one of which is the crew's truck with the camera crane erected above it.

00:18:35

MooCow

Continuity mistake: When the Gornickes catch up with the RV, its shadow is cast to its right, but after Cassie tackles Carl to the ground, there's an exterior shot of the RV and bus as they both cast long shadows to their left. This drastic change in shadows continues in following shots.

00:57:00

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the thoughtful gentleman offers Cassie the 'vegetarian' organ stew things on the table disappear, reappear and change between shots, such as Earl's plate, the flowers, etc. (More visible on fullscreen DVD.)

00:32:50

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: After Travis hoses the turd off Bob, when Billy remarks that 'Ernest Goes to Jail' is funny, the boy's left front tooth (viewer's right) is fully grown in; however, that evening, after dinner, Billy's tooth is barely halfway grown in.

00:28:55 - 00:37:00

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: After Jamie pinches Carl's ear because he spills their destination, when Mary Jo walks toward the Munros, Billy's back faces the camera as he stands on the ground, away from the bus. However, in the next shot Billy faces the camera as he stands on the stool while leaning on the bus.

00:35:10

Continuity mistake: When Bob is chasing the Gornickes on the bicycle, the bus turns right onto the highway. In the next shot, it is turning left.

01:12:00

Revealing mistake: When the RV teeters on the mountaintop, Bob opens the RV door and then swings out, but the three automatic stairs below the doorway do not engage - deliberately done for the humor.

01:10:00

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: In the RV, when Bob turns around to glance at Cassie after the dishes fall on her, in the first shot his arm rest is up (look beside his right shoulder) as he faces her, but when he says, "My bad," the arm rest is down.

00:15:30

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the Munros first hitch a ride with the Gornickes, after Bob takes off on the bicycle, as Cassie questions Earl the calculator repeatedly disappears, then reappears, and the books, etc change between shots.

01:18:55

Continuity mistake: When Gary and Larry catch up with Bob, the trees and snow surrounding the two cars differ after the RV destroys the vehicles; also, note the tree tops.

01:31:50

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Bob is hanging onto the RV's wiper blades, as it nears the campsite, in the last close-up his shirt is completely dry, but in the first shot just as he is thrown backwards, suddenly there are numerous sweat stains on his shirt.

01:12:30

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: At the very end when the Munroe family gets stopped by the police, they walk directly behind the RV. A moment later when the RV rolls down the hill (and runs over the police car) it is facing toward them. For it to do this it would have to run over them.

Add time

Other mistake: In the scene where Bob is trying to get reception on his pocket PC, he is on a rock and the pocket PC beeps, indicating that there is no signal. But when it goes to a closeup of the pocket PC, you can see in the top left hand corner that the signal is full.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the RV, Jamie puts stacks of dishes away in the overhead cabinet - second from right, when Cassie moves Carl off the couch. When Bob makes the sharp right turn, the dishes pour out of the overhead cabinets, but the ones that come out of the second cabinet are not the same dishes that Jamie put away.

00:12:20 - 00:15:00

Continuity mistake: When Bob speaks to his coworkers at his office, Bob says, "Bring jewelry," and his glass is nearly empty, but a couple of shots later, as he still sips his straw, the glass actually has more liquid now. (Difference only visible on fullscreen DVD.)

00:08:45

Audio problem: After the RV rolls into the lake, Jamie asks, "What meeting?" then Bob answers, "The Alpine merger," and in the next shot facing Jamie, Bob turns his head as he is still talking, though nothing is heard.

01:16:10

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Earl gives Cassie the list of places that sell organic health food, in the close-up she holds the papers with her right hand at the top and left hand at the bottom. However, in the next shot it's the opposite way, her right hand is at the bottom and left at the top.

00:44:05

Super Grover Premium member

Revealing mistake: When Bob is riding the pushbike down the steep hill to get to his family and the Gornickes at the bottom, in some shots you can blatantly tell that a stunt double that looks nothing like Robin Williams is riding the bike. The stuntman is also visible later when Bob is on the roof of the Gornickes' bus.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Just forward of the right rear wheelwell, a small dent disappears and reappears throughout the movie.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When they arrive at a campsite to take in the view of the lake that Bob saw with his family as a kid they leave the door to the RV open with the stairs down. After some dialogue the RV rolls into the lake with the stairs up and the door closed.

Continuity mistake: After Bob comes home with the RV, when he and Jamie walk into the kitchen there is a butcher block cutting board laden with items, at the edge of the counter. However, when they speak beside that island counter the cutting board is gone. (Even more noticeable on fullscreen DVD.)

00:10:20

Continuity mistake: When the Munros pick up Gretchen at her house, many shadows are cast on the lawn. Later, when they drop her off, the shadows are identical - they have not changed a bit.

00:03:20 - 00:05:25

Character mistake: When Bob Munro (Robin Williams) is behind the tractor, the speedometer shows that it is below 10mph. He then states that they are going twelve. How could he if they didn't reach 10mph yet?

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: When the Gornickes and the Munros are eating outside at the RV park, you can see a crewmember reflected on the Gornicke bus.

Visible crew/equipment: After Bob urges Alpine not to merge, when Carl flips Todd there is a huge straight edge shadow where they stand, however, there is absolutely nothing near the seated people that would cause such a shadow - only the crew's equipment. (Even more noticeable on fullscreen DVD.)

01:29:20

Continuity mistake: When bike riding Bob chases down the Gornicke bus, in the front shots their shadows jump from their right to left between shots, while driving in a straight line.

Super Grover Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Bob drives up Diablo Pass and also when the RV teeters on the mountain, in the exterior shots the back curtains are closed, but in the interior shots they are wide open.
