Visible crew/equipment: When the Shriekers are trying to find Burt in the front loader (tractor with bucket) with their tongues, as the camera pans it catches the arm of a puppeteer controlling the tongue, in front of the front loader. (01:18:00)
Revealing mistake: It's very clear they blew up a model of the buildings. The grass seen just before the explosions is way too long and is not as long when the characters are running away. Further, the truck and the barrels have disappeared at the explosion shot.
Trivia: Early in production, the film was reportedly intended to be a theatrical release as the first film became a huge hit on VHS and on cable. However, when original co-stars Kevin Bacon and Reba McEntire were unable to commit for various reasons, the budget was lowered and it became a direct-to-video feature. While this was initially disappointing, it paid off in the long run, as it launched a continuing franchise with a further five sequels and a popular (but short-lived) TV series.
Question: What is the name of the BFG (Big F*****g Gun) the Burt uses? If it is a real weapon were can i find out more information on it?
