When Donald goes through the windshield, you hear the sound of regular glass breaking. You can also see a pane of glass break off the car. Real windshields don't break like normal glass does. It doesn't make a shattering noise and doesn't shatter like window glass.

Donald suggests Flowers for Algernon as an example of a movie about flowers, to which Charlie replies, "It's not about flowers; besides it's not a movie." In fact, the book had been filmed twice - once as Charly and for television as Flowers for Algernon.

In the beginning of the film, when John is trudging through the swamp searching for orchids, he is seen up to his armpits in water. Once out of the water, when the park enforcement officer approaches them, the water line on LaRoche's shirt is clearly seen as just above the waist - about a foot lower than the point to which he was submerged.
