Factual errors 

When Larry and Richard are getting lunch at a food stand, they see Bernie entering a building with the entrance awning reading East 70th Street. When Larry and Richard begin walking down the street, a sign behind them reads 52nd Street. Larry and Richard must have had extremely powerful vision if they were able to see Bernie from 18 blocks away.
