Jingle All the Way

Other mistake: When Howard is running behind the car driven by the lady in the fur coat, he's always shown directly behind the center of the car, but when the lady looks in her side mirror (from her point of view), Howard is in the center of the mirror. In reality, she would only see a part of Howard's left side in the reflection (not his whole body).

Plot hole: How would Arnold know about the cop hitting the bus when he was running away from him during the parade? He was far past him at that point.

Trivia: The parade scenes were filmed on the Universal Studios backlot in "Courthouse Square." The film's special effects artists then digitally composited in some elements of a street in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, where the film is set. The sequence took three weeks to shoot and involved hundreds of extras.
