Magnolia

Factual error: In the beginning vignettes there is a scene of the pilot playing blackjack in the casino. He's holding his cards, which means he's playing at a table with a two-deck shoe. But the shoe on the table is very clearly at least a six-deck shoe.

Other mistake: When Earl's wife is pulling into her garage after picking up the medication, wet tyre marks (presumably from previous takes) are visible on the garage floor.

Question: What do the frogs stand for? Is it a biblical reference, or could the screenwriters just not think of a better way to wrap up?

Answer: It's much debated the exact meaning, but it's kind of a reference saying that seemingly impossible things do happen. As we see later in the film, people stuck in similarly impossible situations might just have a chance of getting out of them.
