The War with Grandpa

Revealing mistake: The boards around the window on the house that got hit with a falling tree fell off separately - individual boards were not connected enough to stay attached. As each board fell, the "wall" around the window could be seen and it was so thin (no thick frame) that it was obvious the house (or that section of the house) was a prop. The roof also seemed far too damaged to be "real" - there was a huge hole in the roof but the falling tree did not have long enough branches to cause that large of a hole. (01:17:20)

Revealing mistake: During the trampoline scene, there's a side shot of Grandpa jumping high. It is a very obvious stuntman for De Niro who looks nothing like him.

Revealing mistake: When De Niro/Grandpa falls down the roof and hangs on to the drain, he is replaced by an obvious stuntman with a wig and thinner build.

Revealing mistake: Grandpa holds the can of soda/ pop at about a 45° angle when he is going to pull the tab. Robert De Niro, playing Grandpa, is placing the can in the position needed for the carbonated contents to spray all over his face. (01:13:05)

Continuity mistake: When Peter reads his essay in class his folder keeps swapping between being open and closed, and parallel or perpendicular to the table.
