Audio problem: At the party when Phil is playing the piano, there are several shots of the other band members. Multiple times they are seen playing their instruments, but they are never heard. The most obvious example is right before Phil finishes up his set. The saxophone guy is playing but you never hear it.manthabeat
Visible crew/equipment: After Phil drives the truck off the cliff, and it explodes in a burst of flames, there is a shot of Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliot staring in shock at the disaster. The two actors are bathed in an orange glow supposedly coming from the flaming wreckage. But in the lens of the TV camera Elliot is holding, there is a noticeable reflection of the lighting equipment used to create the glow effect on the actors. (01:04:15)
Trivia: I'm not sure if this was done intentionally, but in the scene where Phil is eating a table full of sweets, talking to Rita, as the camera pans in on Phil, there are 2 clocks on his immediate left. Both look like they indicate the same time, but one says 5:55, and one says 11:30. Notice that the angle of each hand is the same, but the little and big hands are switched. Neat trick if it was done on purpose.
