Goofs
During Junior's attempts to vandalize the portrait of Annie, he instantly recognizes Trixie when she shows up to torment him - but the two have no apparent way of knowing each other yet, unless you count the too brief "balloon pop" scene at the beginning of the movie. This is because of a deleted scene from Junior's first day of school, in which she puts a sign on Junior, leading to his being tormented (this scene is in the USA Network version of the film, but no DVD or home video release.)
Share this
When Junior sets the Crazy Dance on the highest speed, there is ample evidence that the Crazy Dance's rotational speed has increased while the centrifugal force has decreased. This is a physical impossibility.
Share this
When Junior urinates in the glass the color of the liquid changes in between scenes.

Faq
Q
What does Gilbert Godfrey mean, in his office, when he tells Junior he belongs "in cold river?" What is "cold river" and what does it mean to be there?
A
Cold River was the name of the town Ben Healy was originally from, most likely the same town the orphanage was in. In the opening of the film Ben and Junior decide to leave Cold River and move to Mortville.
