Plot hole: Funn, Eggs, and Bell, accompanied by Vilma, enter the theater, ready to show their finished Silent Movie project to the audience. However, only a night previous, Funn, inebriated, is rescued from the gutter, by his friends. A scene immediately following, shows them 'reviving' him with coffee. When did they find ample time to shoot their film? The time frame doesn't add up.

Revealing mistake: While Funn and Bell are warding off their attackers by throwing Coke cans at them from the machine, Eggs is busy rewinding the retrieved film reel around his body. However, when he's done 'winding', it's obvious the amount of film wrapped around him is significantly less than what was on the film reel.

Trivia: This film is in the Guiness Book Of World Records as having the fewest spoken lines of any sound movie. The famous mime, Marcel Marceau, has the only speaking line in this movie. His one line was only one word: "No".
