The Money Pit

Factual error: In the scene when Walter was in the den in the middle of the floor, Anna lifts up part of the blanket and he falls through to the first floor. However, in the next scene, he appears to be able to walk without any problem. The second floor was at least 20-30 feet above the first floor and was covered with all sorts of rubble and a wooden floor. If he had fallen that far, he would have been badly injured and would not have been able to just walk like he did.

Continuity mistake: When Walter is getting the water from the stove you see only one bucket. When he gets upstairs with the water he is carrying two buckets.

More quotes from The Money Pit

Question: Walter is discussing changing the name of Cheap Girls to Meryl Streep with a band member. When they say 'Meryl Streep,' their mouths are not in sync with the words. Do you know what the original name change was supposed to be, and why was it changed?

Answer: It looks like Meryl Streep the first time he says it but not the second.

Answer: I have watched this several times. It looks to me like he is saying Meryl Streep but the audio is just out of sync with the man's lips. Plus when Hanks says it, it matches Meryl Streep on his lips.
