Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie when Charlie is walking through town, you can visibly see tire skid marks that look like they drive right into the barber shop. Charlie doesn't drive the car into the barber shop until later on in the movie.
Corrected entry: At the end when they pull Irene over for suspecting she is in a stolen car, Irene says she rented the car. At the beginning, she was on her way to her sister's in her own car so she should have been driving her own car back home.
Corrected entry: On a technical point, when Charlie gets his thumb shot off he could have kept the gun from firing. If it was a Beretta 9mm (did not get a good enough look at it to be sure) - it will not fire if you push back the slide. This will cause the slide to move far enough back that the firing pin will not make contact with the bullet.
Corrected entry: When Charlie gets his thumb shot off you can slow it down and see it break into a million pieces but at the end when they try to find the thumb it is whole again.
Corrected entry: This isn't exactly a mistake in the film, but on the box cover, it says Charlie "runs out of medication", but in the film he doesn't, he just forgets about them and leaves them in the hotel room.
Corrected entry: When "Hank" is challenging the baseball player because he threw a cigarette away, the player reaches into the back of the pickup to get the tazer gun and pulls it out twice.
Corrected entry: The diagnosis of Charlie's disorder is completely and totally incorrect. Throughout the entire movie, Charlie's diagnosis is called "schizophrenia" along with a number of other symptoms... Merriam-Webster defines schizophrenia as being, "a psychotic disorder characterized by loss of contact with the environment, by noticeable deterioration in the level of functioning in everyday life, and by disintegration of personality expressed as disorder of feeling, thought (as in hallucinations and delusions), and conduct - called also dementia praecox." The actual diagnosis of Charlie's mental illness should be "Dissociative Identity Disorder," or "DID," formerly called, "Multiple Personality Disorder," or "MPD." Schizophrenia and DID are not even vaguely related, so therefore, the doctor completely misdiagnosed him.
Corrected entry: I'm aware that this is one of the running gags the movie lives on, but the diction of Charlie's African-American stepsons is not compatible with the frequently stressed fact that they are top students brought up by a decent stepfather, who spend most of their time at home studying, watching TV, or eating (or combinations thereof). It almost seems that the moviemakers try to suggest that the compulsory use of motherf***er/f***ing (about 50% of their total text delivery) is the result of a genetic disposition.NancyFelix
Corrected entry: In the movie Charlie's commanding officer has the rank of colonel. However, in non-military commands such as law enforcement and security companies the rank is reffered to as Commander instead of Colonel. I work for a security company and my commanding officer has the rank.
Corrected entry: When Charlie, Irene and Dicky are on the bridge, Whitey shoots Dicky in the back. Surely Charlie could have seen Whitey coming to the rescue from BEHIND Dicky?
Corrected entry: At one point in the movie, they say Charlie shot a prize cow in the head 6 times and that it is a miracle that it is still alive. If you are counting when he shoots the cow, there is 1 shot, then 2 more, then 6 more. That makes 9 shots to the cows head, not 6.
Corrected entry: When Hank goes shopping for the supplies, a bottle of booze and the dildo, Charlie shows it to Irene and then places it back in the trunk. In the next scene they are seen pushing the car over the cliff into the water with the supplies in the trunk. Later that night in the hotel room, Irene has the bottle of booze on the night stand and we see the dildo the next morning.
Corrected entry: When Charlie shoots the cow, he seems to use a revolver, yet we hear the shells hit the ground after each shot.
