Miscellaneous 

After Tom jumps off cliff into the river he coaxes the family dog, a yellow lab named "Maggie", into jumping in after him. Throughout the entire movie the dog is called "Maggie" and referred to as "girl" but when the dog leaps from the cliff into the river, you can clearly see it's a male dog.
