The Great Outdoors (1988)

Visible crew/equipment: When the bear is jumping on the cabin door he busted down on top of John Candy you can see the bear trainer waving a stick in front of the camera to make him do his trick.

Continuity mistake: The scene where John Candy gets the recently rented speed boat stuck in the gates precedes the scene where Dan Ackroyd actually chooses the boat. This is also confirmed as Buck asks his dad if he can go off on his own while the speed boat is being chosen, but in the scene when the boat is stuck only the youngest son is in the back of the car.

Continuity mistake: When Annette Benning is at the tops of the stairs with the twins while Dan Aykroyd is trying to fend off the bear, John Candy's younger son Ben is nowhere to be seen. In the next shot he is standing at the top of the stairs screaming with her and the girls.

Trivia: When Roman is proposing his investment deal to Chet there's "instant wood fire starter" on the mantle behind Chet. The scene before this, where they had the blowout, Chet was trying and failing to make a fire using wrinkled up newspaper.
