Continuity mistake: When the Presidents jump off the moving train, James Garner pushes Jack Lemmon off first, waits several seconds, then jumps himself. Given the speed and direction the train was going, Garner should have landed quite a ways away, to the left of Lemmon. But he ends up only a short distance away, to the right of Lemmon (based on the direction they were facing when they jumped.)
Other mistake: When the Presidents are at Union Station, in the first shot of Union Station the sky is clear. In the shots with the Presidents the sky is overcast.
Continuity mistake: When hillbilly family are driving the Presidents around, in the scene where they are arguing about the country, there is a field of plants on Garner's side. When it cuts to Lemmon, there is a rock wall, but when it cuts to the woman in front they are suddenly driving beside a gas station, where they stop to throw the garbage.
Russell Kramer: When this is over, promise me we'll come back and look for my balls.
Russell Kramer: When it comes time for a rest, there's no place like Cleveland.
