After his wife has the party at his house Thornton Melon (Dangerfield) decides to go for a swim in his pool.
The camera shows Melon as he is about to dive in from the edge of the pool, the camera then cuts away and a much thinner Melon is doing a flip into the water, watch carefully as the thinner man makes his dive, you can clearly see his hairpiece fly off the top of his head!

When Thornton Melon and Lou are making the Bruce Springsteen sign, the student at the table is supposed to be writing on a poster but you can see that the marker is not touching the paper.

When Rodney Dangerfield dives into the pool to show his son how to dive correctly, when he climbs out of the pool after his dive he is bone dry.

When they are dedicating the business building, at first there is no box of dirt in the screen. Then it appears when he throws a shovel into the car.
