Meet the Fockers

Revealing mistake: When little Jack is lying down in his crib in the Byrnes' room, after Jack comes in to rest from the football game, you can easily tell this isn't a real child but just a doll. The hair is wrong and there's no movement, like breathing. (00:55:05)

Ben's Mom

Revealing mistake: When they show the bus with the college girls going by, as they pan over the driver, you can tell there is no door on the passenger side. You can see all the way to the ground and road of, what appears was a blue screen background added. This is made even more obvious by the fact the girl driver is not wearing a seat belt, is supposedly flying down the highway, and if this really was a huge hole in the side of the bus, it would be extremely dangerous as she could fall out. There also seems to be some sort of white mattress pad right next to the driver. (00:14:05)

Luna Negra

Revealing mistake: When Jack tells Greg to throw the brick at the RV, when he picks it up you can see it's some kind of spongy material.

Revealing mistake: After Bernard breaks the toilet Greg lifts up the baby. From the angle shot from behind, note the baby's fake hair and you'll notice he's been replaced for a very obvious dummy.

Sacha Premium member

Revealing mistake: When LJ has his hands stuck to the bottle, you can see a material actually holding his hands on the bottle.

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Greg are in the motor home near the beginning of the movie, Jack is talking on the intercom mic to his family in the back, then puts it down when he is finished. But, in the following shot that shows Greg talking, you can see Jack's reflection on the window, showing him still talking into the mic. (00:13:30)

Trivia: In the scene where the three men are in jail towards the end of the movie, the jailer that comes to let them out (but is stopped by Ben Stiller) actually plays a cop in the Comedy Central show "Reno 9-1-1". In fact, he may even be wearing the exact uniform he wears in the series. Also, the sheriff deputy who comes off the motorhome yelling "Look, he has rubber boobie!" is also a cop on Reno 9-1-1.

Question: Does Sodium Pentothal really erase memories of events that happened during and after you take it?

Jason Riley

Chosen answer: It doesn't exactly erase your memories, rather it causes a form of apnea and drowsiness, causing you to be semi-concious or not fully awake, similar to blacking out. This causes you to not remember events that took place during your dosage and during the course of time it is in your bloodstream. Since it puts you in a physical and mental state where the easiest things to do are all you can manage the mental strength to do, it is used as a truth serum, since lying is much more complicated than telling the truth. Because of these properties the drug possesses, higher doses can also be used for Euthanasia, Medical Induced Comas, and even Lethal Injections.
