Vegas Vacation (1997)

47 mistakes

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Clark is driving down the street looking at the map, there are 4 kids roller blading in the street. In one shot, one of the kids jumps onto a parkway lawn to avoid being hit by Clark's bad driving. Next shot, when they pan back to the kids, all 4 are still on the street.

Deliberate mistake: After checking-in at the Mirage, Clark is sitting by his hotel room window admiring the northward view of the strip. Based on the view he must actually be sitting at the nearby Treasure Island hotel.

Continuity mistake: When Eddie and Clark are at the buffet, the cook has the two pots of chicken and beef, but the signs are in the wrong place. So he picks up the chicken and places it in the spot where it is supposed to go. He is about to put down the beef sign where it's supposed to go, and you see him pick up the chicken sign AGAIN and place it in the right spot, as well as the other sign.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie when Clark Crashes into Wayne Newton's house you can see the hood of the tour van is not damaged. A few scenes later when they pull up to the casino the hood has a lot more damage to it.

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the movie when Clark is entering his house and the camera angle is from inside, just as he opens the door there is something red on his front porch. If you look at any of the previous scenes, that red thing isn't there. It's the bottom of a sunscreen being used to block the bright sunlight (which would have flooded the camera) behind Clark as he enters the house.

Audio problem: When the whole family is at the Siegfried and Roy show Clark is asked to participate and they make him disappear and he doesn?t come back. At one point Rusty says "I wonder where Dad went" and Ellen responds with "I don't have a clue". If you read Ellen?s lips she is actually saying "I don?t know" and waves her hands.

Other mistake: Most evident in the massage scene, Jilly's gold ID bracelet on his left wrist is inscribed with the name "Jerry". Jilly is played by Jerry Weintraub.

Continuity mistake: Clark gives the blackjack dealer $200 and asks for chips. Even though the dealer never give him any chips, in the next shot we see he has chips in front of him and he's already placed one in the bet area. In the next shot the dealer asks him to place his bet and we see that the amount of $5 and $25 chips in his stack far exceeds $200.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Clark is driving home, he skids into his driveway where it is visible that the Ford Expedition is crooked and about three feet from the bike. In the next scene the Expedition is straight and right next to the bike, so that he steps on it when he gets out.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Clark and his family sit down at the kitchen table to talk about their Vegas Vacation, watch the fruit basket in the middle of the table. It's there when they go to sit down and it's gone in the next scene. Every time it shows the kids it's there and every time it shows Clark and Ellen it's gone.
