Mr. Mom

Continuity mistake: When Jack kicks the TV it falls backwards, and the screen has snow on it. However, when the repair technician comes in, the screen is broken.

Pam-I-am

Continuity mistake: When the TV repairman shows up to find out what's wrong with the TV for the last time she says that she found out the problem with the TV: "this shoe." It was a shoe that was left in the TV after Michael Keaton kicked the screen in. However, watch the scene, his shoe never leaves his foot.

Continuity mistake: When Carolyn leaves the house for her first day of work the sun is out, then it begins thundering and raining. It's pouring while Jack takes the kids to school. When Carolyn gets to work, the camera shows a far back shot of her new office building and the streets and all are clearly dry - she could work in a different part of town, but then when she gets in the elevator, which is made of glass and on the outside of the building, it's soaking wet from the rain.

More quotes from Mr. Mom

Question: Can anyone tell me why Ron and Jinx are wearing black armbands on their left arms during Jack's dream about being shot?

Question: After the scene where Jack convinces Kenny to give up his "woobie" for a couple days, he's in the kitchen and throws some noodle like things into a boiling pan. They immediately boil up and start to go in every direction soon looking like a mop head. What was it he threw in that pan and why did it react that way?

Answer: Deep-fried rice noodles. I believe they're known as cellophane noodles. That's actually how they react. You heat oil in a pan and when the noodles hit the oil they "explode" like what you see in the film.
