Stupidity: After hearing the question on the radio station to win the Turbo Man doll and a failed attempt at the pay phone to answer it, Howard and Myron end up running two blocks to the station to answer the question. This is really stupid because the prize was going to the first caller with the answer and in the few min it would take to run to the station two blocks away and finally reach the DJ, many calls would have come in and most likely someone would have won already, way before the men arrived there.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the scene where Jamie and Howard are in Jamie's room, as Jamie is drawing, keep an eye on his picture. It is inconsistent between shots.
Jamie: I want the Turbo Man action figure with the arms and legs that move and the boomerang shooter and his rock'n roller jet pack and the realistic voice activator that says 5 different phrases including, "It's Turbo time!" Accessories sold separately. Batteries not included.
Trivia: The diner Howard goes into after pushing his car is Mickey's Diner in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. The same diner was used in The Mighty Ducks, also shot in Minnesota. In this film however, the interior is a set. The interior of the real Mickey's Diner is not as spacious as shown in the film.
