The Great Outdoors

Continuity mistake: During the bear in the cabin scene, after Chet puts the door back up, shortly after, you'll see the door is on the floor while Roman is fighting the bear with the oar from the steps. (Also, note in that same shot, you'll see the bookshelf was destroyed to pieces with its books all over the floor. That scene was never shown and must have been cut from the movie).

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.

New this month Suggested correction: The scene when John Candy crashed the boat came after the scene when the boat was chosen. It is the exact opposite of the mistake quoted above.

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.

Chet: Bear... bear... Big Bear... big bear chase meeeeeeee....

Roman: Why do Chet's kids look at him like he's Zeus and my kids look at me like I'm a rack of lawn tools at Sears?

Roman: I gotta go to the John, I'll be right back. Gonna introduce Mr Thick Dick to Mr Urinal Cake.
