Corrected entry: Peter has a roll of kitchen tissue paper mounted on his fridge. In some scenes it is mounted vertically, in others horizontally.


Correction: It's most likely attached by magnet, in which case I've had one like that and it tends to come off when you pull for a towel, so different positions in different scenes is possible.


Corrected entry: When asked what he would do with 1 million dollars, Peter is holding a bottle, and the next shot, it's gone and his hand is flat on the armrest.

Correction: He's put the beer down on the table beside him.


Corrected entry: When the guys go to the party for that injured fellow, and he shows them his "jumping to conclusions mat", it has a spot labelled "loose 1 turn" instead of "lose 1 turn."

Correction: While this is true, several comments are made about the mat being a stupid idea and it being a prototype. This misspelling is probably just another reminder of what a bad idea it is.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when Peter is cleaning up the debris he sees Milton's stapler and says he knows someone who might want this. The camera switches angles and the stapler disappears. Where did it go?

Correction: You can see it hooked on to his tool belt.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Peter, Zamir and Michael are at Chotchkie's having coffee, Michael continually pours sugar into his coffee. When they show Michael from the front at Peter is talking to him, he puts down a package of sugar, but the next shot shows him from behind and he is again holding the same pack of sugar that he has already emptied and put down.

Correction: Right as the angle is switching you can see Michael reaching for another sugar packet. Therefore he uses multiple packets not just one.

Corrected entry: When Tom is having the party at his home, Samir & Michael are talking to his lawyer. The lawyer says he has a client in Minimum Security Prison. If he was Tom's lawyer in the case where he was hit by a drunk driver, wouldn't that make him a Prosecuting Attorney, not a Defender? I realise lawyers can switch sides, but how often does it really happen?

Correction: The "mistake" confuses a state prosecutor or district attorney with a private attorney. State prosecutors are government employees and (while they are employed by the government) can only prosecute criminal defendants. Private attorneys (like Tom's lawyer) represent defendants in criminal courts and plaintiffs and defendants in civil courts. Most private attorneys who have individuals as clients represent all of these parties all the time. Tom's lawyer clearly represented Tom in a civil case and the other defendant in a criminal case.

Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, cause chicks dig a dude with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well the kind of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.

Peter Gibbons: Besides two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Well yeah.
Peter Gibbons: Nothing.
Lawrence: Nothing, huh?
Peter Gibbons: I'd relax, I would sit on my ass all day, I would do nothing.
Lawrence: Well you don't need a million dollars to do nothing, man. Just take a look at my cousin, he's broke, don't do shit.

Trivia: Director Mike Judge wanted the story to be able to take place anywhere, so the state is never specified. Even the license plates on the cars are stateless.
