Home Alone 3

Character mistake: When Jernigan chases the car, he tells the team, "It's heading south on Adams." The toy car then turns left, which means that the car should be heading east. However, Jernigan tells the team that the car is headed west.

Character mistake: In the opening scene where Olek Krupa is looking at flight departures at San Francisco Airport, you can briefly see two entries that say "San Frnsicso." (00:05:30)

Other mistake: When one of the bad guys looks through the mail box slot, Alex sprays him in the eyes with black spray paint. Meaning the spray paint must have actually gone INTO his eyes, yet when he turns around, its only around the outer part of his eyes and nowhere in his eye balls.

Trivia: One of the many early concepts for the film after Macaulay Culkin dropped out was to have Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern returning as the "Wet Bandits," who would torment Kevin's young cousin Fuller, but this was dropped as none of the actors wanted to return for a third film.

Question: If they're spies then why are the four shown being booked in regular jail? Why aren't they in a federal prison?

Answer: Because it's just a movie, it's a comedy, and the filmmakers are not concerned with exact, realistic details. They expect the audience to just enjoy the silliness and not be overly concerned about reality. The two other Home Alone films employed similar "suspension of disbelief" in the plots.

Answer: There are two possible explanations: 1) Because there is far less space available in federal prisons, compared to state and local facilities, federal prisoners and arrestees are often kept in local facilities. 2) Because the federal charges or providing support for terrorism and industrial espionage are harder to prove compared to the state-level charges of breaking and entering, assault and battery, and attempted murder.

It's doubtful the writers had all that in mind when writing a comedy holiday script. The plot simply calls for the spies to be caught and thrown into jail at the end of the story. There is also a difference between prison and jail. Prison is for those convicted of a crime. Jail is a temporary holding place after an arrest is made. With police being involved in the arrest, the spies would initially be booked and held in the local jail. The spies would later be transferred to federal custody to await trial.
