Factual error: This film takes place in 1987, but when Norm Gunderson is talking to Marge about his paintings, he mentions a 29 cent stamp. 29 cent stamps weren't introduced until 1991.
Carl shoots Wade because the old man is stubborn and didn't want to hand over the cash (but Wade shoots Carl in the face). Pissed off and heavily bleeding, he buries the money under some snow. Jean is killed by Gaear. Carl gives a bit of money to his Gaear and after briefly talking, he axes Carl. Marge solves the whole crime and arrives at Carl and Gaear's place. Gaear is shoving Carl (what's left of him) in a wood chipper. He runs away; Marge shoots him and then busts him. The police break in to some motel and arrest Jerry Lundegaard. In the end, no one gets the ransom money.
Trivia: Note in the end credits that there is the symbol for "the Artist Formally Known as Prince" (a Minnesota native) placed sideways.
Question: By the time Jerry gets arrested, his wife and her father are both dead. What will now happen to Jerry's son, now that his dad is in jail, and his mother and grandfather are both dead?
