Joe Somebody (2001) Poster

(2001)

Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

As Mark cuts Joe off in the parking lot, post production chose the wrong horn sound-effect. That sfx was intended for a car honking as is drove past.

When Joe's wife chases him out of the 3rd Street theater, as she watches him walk away, an extra exits the building. The extra should still be visible in the background of the close-up, but he has vanished.

When Joe is helping staple the banner up, he staples his sleeve to the board. He pulls it away pulling the banner off but his sleeve is still stapled. When we cut back to Joe, he is not stapled anymore (and there hasn't been enough time for him to do anything about it).

Near the end when Joe meets Meg in the parking lot to confess his feelings, immediately before she gets out of the pickup, she's got her seat belt on. In the next shot, through the passenger side window, the belt is no longer on.

As Joe has his lunch in the company cafeteria, he sips from a cup of Pepsi. The cup changes from large to small (large when Joe drinks, small when it's on the table beside him).

Joe and Pat walk out of the building carrying umbrellas. Though everything is wet, you won't see any droplets in the puddles, nor on his tan pants or blue shirt.

When Callie and Natalie are walking past the karate dojo and see Joe practicing with Chuck, the front end of Joe's Chevy Lumina is visible in the shot. However, a few scenes before Joe is showing Meg his new Cadillac. Based on his conversation with Meg, it sounds like he traded in his Lumina because that was "someone else" who drove it.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Natalie and her father Joe are in the car discussing his job, a clapper board can be seen next to them between the front seats. In the next shot a newspaper is there instead. The "Joe" part of the title is visible on the clapper board.

Errors in geography 

The scene where you see Joe passing the Macaroni Grill twice on his way from home to work is geographically incorrect. It appears on the left side of the highway which means he was actually driving towards Minneapolis, his supposed home, instead of away from it. In fact, the Macaroni Grill is even more west of downtown than where his office was located so he would never be on that part of the road going to or from work at all.
