Corrected entry: After Fletcher writes BLUE all over his face, he wraps his head in a towel and magically his face is clean again, but just moments before, when he was talking to his secretary, we saw him scrubbing his face with water and he could not get the ink off. That must have been some towel.
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.
