Goofs

At the opening, the Heckendorn's arrive at Dave's house in a 1966 four door hardtop dark colored Chrysler. In the epilogue, when they drive up to the Crabtree's the next morning, the car is a lighter blue Chrysler two door convertible. The close on shots are similar, as to show mostly interiors of the occupants during dialog - full shots of the car are not seen, resulting in this visual mismatch not instantly obvious while watching the action.
