Mr. Mom

Visible crew/equipment: When Caroline arrives home in the taxi cab at the end, she sees Joan's red car in the driveway. When she opens the door you can see a reflector screen in the window for a split second. (Use slo-mo if necessary).

Continuity mistake: When the TV repairman shows up to find out what's wrong with the TV for the last time she says that she found out the problem with the TV: "this shoe." It was a shoe that was left in the TV after Michael Keaton kicked the screen in. However, watch the scene, his shoe never leaves his foot.

Question: After the scene where Jack convinces Kenny to give up his "woobie" for a couple days, he's in the kitchen and throws some noodle like things into a boiling pan. They immediately boil up and start to go in every direction soon looking like a mop head. What was it he threw in that pan and why did it react that way?

Answer: Deep-fried rice noodles. I believe they're known as cellophane noodles. That's actually how they react. You heat oil in a pan and when the noodles hit the oil they "explode" like what you see in the film.
