Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, Charlie is involved in a snowball fight. The bully comes down the hill on a snowboard to confront Charlie face to face. However, as soon as he arrives at the bottom of the hill, his feet are already out of the snowboard - he never bends over to release the bindings.

Correction: The bully had plenty of time to release the bindings. When he slides down the hill he sits down, then Charlie looks back at his friends and you see their reaction. Then the camera cuts back to the bully, who is starting to stand up.

Corrected entry: When its, about halfway through the film, the camera is going toward the snowman and you can hear a weather man say its 70 outside - enough to melt a snowman. Not only will it never get that hot with snow on the ground at c Christmas but also the snowman starts to melt when going across the road to the hockey game,why didn't any of the other snow melt?

Correction: I'm not sure where this takes place, but in Minnesota the temperature frequently fluctuates dramatically, up to and including the air being 70 degrees in the middle of winter. The snow probably was melting, but as it wasn't in the form of a snowman moving across a parking lot, you couldn't tell as easily.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Charlie and the snowman (his dad) are getting chased by the bullies, the sled gets split in half into two sled pieces. But you can clearly see that in some parts of this scene, Charlie is riding a real snowboard, and in others he is riding the half piece of sled.

Charlie: Rory, you know what it's like to have no dad.
Rory Buck: Yeah, I do. It sucks! A snowdad is better than no dad.

Trivia: You may notice that the snowman looks a little familiar, but doesn't quite look like Michael Keaton. This is because originally, George Clooney was supposed to star in the film, and the snowman was designed to look subtly like him. Clooney dropped out at the last minute and was replaced by Keaton, and the effects teams didn't have quite enough time to totally redesign the snowman. (They only had time to make a few minor tweaks, like his eyebrows).
