Goofs

When Mac and Charlie are visiting the "Italian Market", Mac purchases a pear for Charlie, as he had never had one before. As Charlie consumes it he decides he doesn't like the way it tastes. This upsets Mac and he demands the thirty-five cents he paid for the pear back from the store owner. Upon turning back around Charlie claims he has eaten the entire pear, despite the fact he does not like it, but if you watch the pear closely throughout this scene not only do more (large) bites appear to be taken from the pear from shot to shot, the pear is in a different hand, and you can see Charlie lower the pear off screen and drop it. His hand then quickly returns back to frame in the next shot. See more »
