Continuity mistake: When the two brothers are frantically trying to get out of the car because the monster truck is barreling toward them (in slo-mo), you will notice that the tongue ring is missing from the one brother's tongue. Odd mistake seeing as his character is centered around the tongue ring. (01:27:05)
Other mistake: When Rowan Atkinson is riding in the train, near the end of the film, he is looking out the window. He is looking forward, then quickly looks backwards. He does this several times in a row, as if trying to see things quickly as the train passes them. But, when the camera pulls back, Rowan's back is facing the direction the train is moving, thus he was looking the wrong way! You can tell by the way the scenery is moving as you look through the window. (01:28:05)
Continuity mistake: When Tracy visits her boyfriend in the helicopter, she starts to throw random objects at his truck. Watch her first throw where she cracks the back window, you'll notice that the front bonnet is dented although nothing has hit the bonnet yet. If you believe something might have been thrown before that, when she throws the second and third object there is no dent where that one was. (00:46:25)
Trivia: In the very beginning of the movie, the two brothers are gambling together. They pull the lever on one of the slot machines and two cows come up. Significant because they have an encounter with cows later in the movie.
Trivia: At the beginning the two brothers are in the casino taking quarters out of a feed the children donation box. It's ironic that they should get the gold coin with the quarters and race to Silver City and end up giving the money to the Feed the Children Foundation and the end.
Trivia: This is the first movie to have 2 Academy award-winning Afro-Americans together.
Donald Sinclair: I can do anything. I'm eccentric.
Question: Besides being played for comedic effect, would getting the coin toss wrong have really mattered?
Question: In the "Ricky Bus" deleted scene on the DVD, can anyone work out what the guys on the bus are saying?
Question: What happened with the key that the brothers were trying to copy. How did they know that the guy made a copy for himself?
