Continuity mistake: Bernie's facial expression changes from the smile on his face when he first get injected with drugs to a smirk throughout the movie, to no expresssion and back again.
Continuity mistake: Right before Richard discovers that Bernie is dead and Larry is talking about drugs becoming a career, "I watch the news. I read." There is a side/back view of Larry talking and neither his gestures or his mouth line up with what he is saying.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when the hitman comes to kill Bernie for one last time, Larry, Gwen, and Richard start running from the hitman and Gwen has her hat in her hand. They run over to the stereo and she drops it somewhere over by there. In later shots, however, you can see Gwen's hat lying right next to Bernie in front of the staircase.
Trivia: Bernie's two story house was built specifically for this movie at a state park in North Carolina, but was torn down right after filming, as per the agreement before filming.
Trivia: The movie's director Ted Kotcheff has a small part as Richard's father who comes out in his underwear as Richard and Gwen are making out on the couch.
Larry Wilson: "A little brown-nosing, a little ass-kissing, work our way up that corporate ladder?" WHY can't you be a lazy shit like I am?
Larry Wilson: What kind of a host invites you to his house for the weekend and dies on you?
Security Officer: Hot enough for ya, Larry?
Larry Wilson: No, Harris! Why don't you turn up the heat?
Security Officer: OK, I'll tell the engineer.
Question: Wouldn't it be against regulation for a house, especially of that size, to be built on a section of the beach that the tide would eventually come up to? A sturdy foundation is absolutely of the question with there being nothing but sand to build it on. When the tide came up to pull Bernie into the water, it definitely would've made contact with the house.
Question: What did Pauley say before he shot Bernie sitting on the steps?
