When Professor Keenbean is being filmed standing next to the machine dispensing bowling balls, he goes to switch it off with empty arms, but when we switch to the next shot of him he has a bowling ball in his arms and drops it on his foot.

If any one of you guys wanna turn back, now's the time.
No way. Would you turn back if you were us? We're with you, Richie.
Why so harsh?
I gave this movie a 7 on a scale of 1-10 because I took into
consideration it is a kids movie and should be judged as such. When
this movie came out I was 13 and of course I enjoyed it much more then
as opposed to now but having watched it as a child and as an adult I do
remember how much I enjoyed the film as a kid. From the harsh grade of
a 4.4 average I assume people where comparing this to complex movies
with great plots. Kids should not be subjected to nothing but adult
theme. So when you grade the movie remember what audience it was
desighned for.As a child I would have gave this movie a 7. Would you
drive a metro and act as if it should perform like a porsche?
