  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Bernie's car has a Statue of Liberty license plate, which didn't start appearing until 1986. But his car's registration says 1986 on it, which means it was issued in 1984, so it should have the older blue-on-yellow license plate.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The ambulance that takes Bernard to the hospital after his heart attack has the 9/11 memorial logo (Twin Towers) on the back.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Post-1986 model cars are seen during most exterior shots.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The police officer who issues Bernard a ticket for double parking is wearing a post-1994 Navy blue uniform. The uniforms in 1986 were sky blue.
