Revealing mistake: When Nathan walks into the classroom singing, the center sliding glass door on the back bookcase has been pushed to the side, so as not to see the reflection of the camera/crew as Nathan walks up the aisle following the camera. (01:42:15)

Revealing mistake: In the parking lot of what is supposed to be Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, all the cars have Florida license plates. This happened because Ron Howard shot much of the film in Florida, not in St. Louis, Missouri.

Question: Since Helen is one of the 4 adult Buckman children, and had been previously married to Julie and Garry's dad, why is Julie's last name also Buckman? I could see Helen going back to her maiden name, that's not uncommon but it would be unusual to have a teenager (in the late 80's) who had her mother's name rather than her father's. Or was this a plot hole that was created so that they could create the conflict of the photographs scene?

Answer: If a child becomes estranged from their father after their parents have divorced, it's not all that uncommon for the child to take their mother's maiden surname instead of their father's.
