Corrected entry: When Fletcher is chasing the plane on the flight of stairs and is trying to get the pilot's attention, the pilot says that they are clear for take-off. But wouldn't the control tower have informed them prior to that statement that they can't take off yet because someone is chasing them on a flight of stairs which would delay the take-off?
Corrected entry: When Jim Carey's ex is helping him get his impounded car out of the tow yard, she pays with a check, but as she is handing the check in, a sign can be seen hanging above the counter that states that checks aren't accepted.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jim Carrey goes to his son's school he takes him out of class when his teacher is reading a book, but 5 minutes later she is telling the boy to come in from recess. How could the class be at recess when 5 minutes earlier she was reading a book in class? That is the shortest recess ever.
Corrected entry: In the morning court session, the Judge calls the case of "Samantha Cole v Richard Cole." This indicates that Samantha, who is listed first in the case caption, is the Petitioner and that Richard is the Respondent. However, when the case goes to trial in the afternoon, Richard presents his case first, meaning that he is the Petitioner, and Jim Carrey, Samantha's lawyer, states, "the Respondent calls Kenneth Faulk." Accordingly, the Petitioner and the Respondent flip-flop from the morning to the afternoon session.
Corrected entry: When Jim Carrey's wife is lighting the candles on their son's birthday cake towards the end of the movie, in one shot while she is talking to Carrey on the phone, she is about to light the candles on their son's birthday cake. In the next shot, all of the candles are lit, and the match is burnt out.
Corrected entry: At the end when Fletcher is going to stop Max from leaving on the plane it is supposed to be at 8 something pm at night but when he arrives at the airport and the plane is just leaving and the sun is clearly out and it appears to be about 2 in the afternoon and then after he crashes off the staircase it is completely dark.
Corrected entry: After Carrey returns from the bathroom after having beaten himself up, the judge says that he has no choice but to suspend the hearing "unless, of course, you feel as if you can continue", to which Carrey, not being able to lie, must respond yes. However, Carrey had been asking all day for a continuance without the spell stopping him from doing so. It's not a lie that Carrey couldn't have continued with his case considering the spell he was under, so he should've been able to answer "no"
Corrected entry: In the scene where Fletcher is on the courthouse steps after beating himself senseless, Max calls Fletcher on his cell phone and tells him about the kids that want to play ball with him now. Max asks if Fletcher is still coming and if he still wants to be Jose Canseco and Fletcher replies, "Of course. Who else is going to hit that famous Nomo slider". Baseball enthusiasts know that Nomo is famous for his "splitter" or split-finger fastball not a slider.
Corrected entry: When Max is having his fifth birthday party at the beginning of the movie, there is a clown and a bunch of adults hanging around having a good time. If this party was for a 5 year old and had a clown present, why were there no other children the same age? There were only a group of adults. What child wants to have a party like that?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Fletcher is bashing himself up in the bathroom, he rubs soap in his eyes and bashes himself up pretty bad. I mean he even faints when he smashes himself into the wall. He shouldn't have to lie to the judge about whether he feels well enough to finish the trial. He should be able to tell the judge 'no' because it looks like he beat himself up pretty bad.
Corrected entry: At the end, Fletcher proves that since his client was underage at the time she signed the prenuptial agreement, the contract was null and void, and she won the money. BUT... the reason she lied about her age was so that she could get married... but a marriage license is a legal contract, too, which would mean that since she was underage, the marriage was null and void also. Therefore, she would not be owed one cent, because she was never legally married to the guy. Can't be a common law marrige, as they only exist in 15 states. I think they were supposed to have lived during their marrige in California, which isn't one of them. See: http://marriage.about.com/cs/commonlaw/ht/commonlaw.htm.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Fletcher is sitting outside the courthouse (court is in recess following Fletcher's self-battery), Samantha and her lover approach him to discuss their testimony. They agree that Fletcher will "walk them through the tape" and that they will give the explanation that he came up with. Problem is, Fletcher had never heard the tape before that day (or he would have known how it could be proved that the voice on the tape wasn't Cole himself). That being the case, he wouldn't have had the time to come up with a rationale for the tape, and even if he had, he couldn't have proposed any lies for them to tell. (Also, I'm not sure, but aren't the rules of discovery being violated, since Fletcher was apparently unaware of the contents of the tape and it was not being used for witness rebuttal?).
