Jingle All the Way

Factual error: When Howard is running after the bouncy ball he is on the second floor of the Mall of America, however, you see him run through the LEGO store which is located on the lowest floor of the Mall of America, which is impossible if he was on the second floor before.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the scene where Jamie and Howard are in Jamie's room, as Jamie is drawing, keep an eye on his picture. It is inconsistent between shots.

Plot hole: How would Arnold know about the cop hitting the bus when he was running away from him during the parade? He was far past him at that point.

Trivia: The diner Howard goes into after pushing his car is Mickey's Diner in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. The same diner was used in The Mighty Ducks, also shot in Minnesota. In this film however, the interior is a set. The interior of the real Mickey's Diner is not as spacious as shown in the film.

Trivia: The parade scenes were filmed on the Universal Studios backlot in "Courthouse Square." The film's special effects artists then digitally composited in some elements of a street in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, where the film is set. The sequence took three weeks to shoot and involved hundreds of extras.

Howard Langston: I gotta tell you, Santa, there's something about this place that doesn't seem quite... Kosher.
