Continuity mistake: Alan throws a bra onto the floor after Charlie tells him whose bra it is, which lands touching a rug. Alan goes to pick it up and the bra has not only moved away from the rug but it is also lying in a different position. (00:12:00 - 00:12:40)Justin Davis
Other mistake: When Jake is sitting on the couch talking on the phone, he says out loud "we were on a train in a tunnel?" etc, Alan has not walked into the house yet, therefore could not hear Jake's phone conversation. However when Jake walks past Alan and continues talking on phone, Alan states "at least he isn't the tunnel." Alan was not inside at the time of this conversation, so it makes no sense that he would have heard Jake say this.Melissa Bostic
Continuity mistake: When Alan comes into the kitchen singing his song, he reaches into the fridge and grabs a jug of orange juice. He then looks around the kitchen and sees that everybody seems to be in a bad mood. The jug of orange juice is gone and he is holding what looks like a jug of juice, but it had a screw lid on it and is full as if it has never been open. After talking for a few seconds the camera goes back to Alan and he is holding the jug of half empty orange juice again.
Continuity mistake: When Jake and Alan are in the car, They are talking about having Chinese food for Christmas dinner. When doing so, the car behind them changes from a black 4x4 to a red sports car. Then back. There is not enough time between shots for the cars to maneuver.Ssiscool
Factual error: Despite Alan's general bad luck he indeed wouldn't have to be afraid of the skunks. In reality skunks use their anal scent glands very reluctantly and only if they feel threatened because they only carry a limited amount of liquid and have a rather long "recharging" time. To that effect a skunk that apparently feels home in a suburban surrounding would never feel threatened by a human.Tanngrisnir
