Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when they are driving away in the pick-up truck - the brake lights flash several times without slowing the truck. I'm told this is a low-tech method of making the truck tires "peel-out". They selectively disable the rear-brakes, which causes the rear wheels to spin when the brakes are applied to the front wheels. They forgot to remove the brake light fuse which would have masked this technique. (01:48:05)
Continuity mistake: In the final scene where Burt Reynolds loads up the back of his truck with Dolly Parton's suitcases and then drives off, we see him throw in as many as 5 or 6 suitcases. When he drives off into the sunset, there is just one suitcase in the back of his pickup. (01:47:05 - 01:48:10)
Ed Earl: Boys, I got myself a pretty good bullshit detector, and I can tell when somebody's peeing on my boots and telling me it's a rainstorm.
