Corrected entry: To allow for the children to be at eye level when they speak to him, when Arnold is brought out on the stretcher, the ambulance attendants roll him with it in the down position. You can see at the end of the scene they actually raise him up to put him the ambulance to cover up the manoeuvre when in fact they should have left him lowered to lift him in.

Correction: This instructional video demonstrates the proper procedure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxmTaDehfzI | ALL stretchers are raised or lowered on their frames to be level with the back of the ambulance. Once the ambulance is supporting the head end of the stretcher, the frame is raised up from under the stretcher while one or more responders continue to support it. It is then loaded into the ambulance. The stretcher in this film starts off lower than usual so the children can speak to Kimble, yes, but this is not a movie mistake, just a consideration of the responders. This scene plays out almost exactly like the instructional video in the link.

Corrected entry: Right at the end when Arnold is on the stretcher going into the ambulance, the EMS crew does a strange thing. They are rolling the stretcher with Arnold in the down position, then when they get to the ambulance, they raise it up. This is the opposite of the way it is normally done. Plus, with that model of stretcher, you have to lower the patient and then lift him bodily into the back of the ambulance. In the scene immediately after they raise it, they are seen sliding the stretcher into the ambulance after is has been put back into the down position. If you watch closely, you can see that the medics look confused when they raise the stretcher and it won't go into the ambulance. Clearly they rolled it in the down position so the kids could talk to him.

Corrected entry: When Detective O'Hara comes into Kimble's class to speak about "stranger danger," she doesn't speak with the Austrian accent she possessed when dining with Dominic. Dominic, however, does not question this or show any surprise.

Correction: Kimble and O'Hara had already dropped their cover stories and revealed to Joyce and Dominic (not Damian) their true identities the day before - that's why he wasn't surprised.

Corrected entry: Phoebe and Kimble are supposed to be married as their undercover identity but on Kimble's first day of school, a student asks him if he's married and he says no.

Correction: Only the principal (and maybe other staff) are to assume they're married. The fact a kid is told he's not hardly would make a difference. It's not like the kid would tell anyone from the school.

The correction makes no sense. What's the point of going undercover as a married couple if the one person who already knew he was an undercover cop was the only one who was suppose to think he was married? Plus, one kid literally shouts from the classroom he's not married, for a lot of people to hear. Several moms know he's not married from their kids telling them, and Joyce (a staff member) is told Phoebe is his sister. No way the principal doesn't know he's not married.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when Kimble first enters the classroom, he has a very clear limp. Then when Joyce comes in and begins to kiss Kimble, his limp disappears as he picks her up and begins to spin her around in circles.

Correction: Emotions can make you forget about your pain. Endorphins, adrenaline and the like are released during some emotional moments.

Corrected entry: The urinals in the elementary school bathroom are too tall for kids to go to, the bathroom scenes were not shot in an elementary school bathroom

Correction: They must have been faculty restrooms.

Continuity mistake: After Kimble walks in on Phoebe and Henry in the bedroom, the positions of the pillows change (in one shot a pillow falls of the bed, but is back on in the next), and the sheet of paper move around the bed sheets too. (00:55:50)

Question: Why does Zack have bruises everywhere on his body,also,why does his mom lie about it?

Answer: Because he's being abused by his father. As explained in the movie the father beats him and his mother as well. So she has to lie about Zack's black and blue marks. In one scene the mother explains Mr. Kimble that the father is undergoing therapy. He says that if it happens again he will report it. As Zack shows bruises again, Arnold's character goes out and beats Zack's father.
