Goofs

Slater drops the video camera and it falls roughly four feet to the ground. We see a close-up shot of the damaged camera and the video cassette has been expelled from the camera and the tape has been pulled out of the cassette case. The camera and video cassette look like they has suffered much more damage than they should have suffered from such a short fall. See more »

Quotes
