Plot holes 

John showing up late to his niece's spelling bee and promising to pay for her to go to college is all caught on home video. But since John, his sister, and his niece are all in the video, there doesn't seem to be anyone left to shoot it. More than that, the camera angle repeatedly shifts, indicating that two cameras were taping the event and that the two versions were later edited together
