Continuity mistake: Russell asks Debbie to try and slam his arm in the car's door to show its sensor. After she slams his hand the second time, the door remains open. In the next shot, it is closed. In the next wide shot, the door is now open again.


Factual error: The exterior shots of Rusty's plane show a Boeing 777, a modern twin-engine widebody with a distinctive square tail (and glass display panels in the cockpit). The cockpit interior scenes shows a mishmash most closely resembling a vintage 727, with three columns of individual gauges for each of the three engines, among other details, including small "eyebrow" windows above the main windshields. Later Rusty says he flies an Airbus A318, which is totally different from either Boeing.
