Corrected entry: Early in the film, the girl says, "If you have one more felony, they'll take me away." If he had any felony, he wouldn't be able to vote. Kind of blows the whole film out of the water.

Correction: The basic premise of the movie blows the entire movie out of the water. The President is elected by electoral votes, individual votes do not mean anything. You have to file this under "suspension of disbelief".


Except that in the state of New Mexico, ex-cons are permanently banned from voting. Since both presidential candidates want all of Bud's information, his criminal past would be made available to them and they would also realise the same thing.


Continuity mistake: During the final debate scene when they show the two candidates on stage with the monitors behind them, the background on the screens does not match the background behind them at the camera angle used. You can see the rows of stars, but not the rest of the background which would be in line with their heads. (01:49:10)

Molly Johnson: All the world's great civilizations have followed the same path. From bondage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy back to bondage. If we are to be the exception to history, then we must break the cycle, for those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
