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.

Continuity mistake: Howard arrives back at his home in a tow truck. It is obviously late in the day judging by the sun angle. In the next scenes however it is afternoon. The parade takes place in bright midday sunshine.

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.

Revealing mistake: When the huge explosion happens, it is blatantly obvious that Eric and his wheelchair are superimposed in the shot. When the main scene shakes a bit, the superimposed wheelchair does not move. This same explosion minus Eric and his wheelchair appears in an alternate ending. It's the same exact shot.

Revealing mistake: When Eric fails into the water, you see MAC sit up into the shot. This was obviously done by rear projection, with MAC inserted into the shot. Notice the difference in contrast between MAC and the other shot in front of it.
