Welcome to Mooseport

Hackman wins the election outright by 1 vote, but says that he broke his promise of voting for Romano, so he hands the election to Romano. Romano says the same thing, and hands the election back over to Hackman. So Hackman accepts. Romano proposes to Tierney, and admits that he did in fact vote for Hackman like he said, therefore he won the election fair and square, but decided that Hackman needed it more. Hackman ends up with Harden. Hackman's campaign manager asks Romano if he would consider running for governor, to which Romano considers.


Other mistake: Sally is supposedly drying off a newly delivered puppy (looks like a yellow lab). Besides the fact that a vet wouldn't take a newborn from its mother unless there was something wrong, this puppy is dry, its eyes are open, and it looks about six weeks old.

Trivia: Monroe Cole states that people will be calling him Mr. President for the rest of his life. While it is true people do tend to call former presidents by that title (thus not a movie mistake), as a point of trivia; is it incorrect to address a former president as "Mr. President" or "former president (surname)." While Cole doesn't have to worry about his ex-wife taking his title, leaving office will do that. It's the media that perpetuates this presidential title error.

Question: Why did Gene Hackman quit acting after appearing in this movie?

Answer: His decision to retire wasn't related to this film; it just happened to be his last. He was working on other projects (mostly writing), and wanted to focus on those. He didn't "officially" announce his retirement from acting until 2008.

Answer: As the other fine answers indicated, it was multiple reasons. An additional one was his health. Hackman said his doctor told him his heart wasn't healthy enough to withstand the stress and physical rigors involved in filming movies.
