If you notice, in the scene where the "Cheap Girls" comes to the house to talk to Walter about changing their name, they did not originally say that they wanted to change it to Meryl Streep. If you read their lips they do not say Meryl Streep. Long after the voiceover has stopped saying Meryl Streep their mouths continue moving. Wonder what the original name was?

At the train station Walter and Anna decide to buy the house and the train comes barreling through the station. This should have caused a noticable change in the pitch of the train whistle. This is called the doppler effect. Alas, no doppler effect can be heard.

Walter says "You have the best kept pool I have ever seen" but there is no pool anywhere to be seen...

When the work crew arrives and Walter and Anna get into the car to leave for the station, Walter cranks the engine and we instantly see steam from the radiator.

This would not happen until the engine warmed up at least for a minute or two.

In the scene when they add their buckets of water to the bathtub that already has water in it, the tub crashes to the floor below completely dry

Bogus Blunders

Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistake
