Random Trivia For This Title:

  • When Eugene gets the car stuck in the sand on the side of the road, Raymond is pointing a gun at the guy who kidnapped Valerie. The gun changes from a Colt to a Baretta several times between shots.
  • During the scene where Danny Glover is pointing a gun at Frank, it switches inexplicably from a Beretta to a Colt during each camera change.
  • After Eugene backs the Jeep halfway off the edge of the cliff, Raymond ends up falling out the back of the Jeep, knocking the tail gate open. Raymond is hanging upside down by his foot which is caught in a strap of some kind. A minute later, we see a shot from Eugene's point of view and see Raymond's hands gripping the top of the tail gate which is in back in the upright (closed) position.
  • Stuck in the sand scene, with each camera change the Beretta has the hammer down and the Colt has the hammer back.
  • After Eugene shoots at the snake between Raymonds legs the snake is obviously being dragged away by it's neck. No snake moves like that naturally.
  • Eugene's eggs change from cut up to just cooked and back to cut up during his breakfast conversation with Raymond.
