Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie; they travel cross-country.
For in-flight viewing, several airlines deleted the sequence in which Raymond reels off statistics on airline accidents, except Qantas. They even promoted one of the movie's writers to first class once when he travelled on their airline.
Now it's five and a half weeks and I'm still sitting on four Lamborghinis that can't meet spot emissions standards. Now, how many times you wash out with EPA?
Lenny: Uh, yes sir, they're finally, uh, clearing EPA; uh, just one or two more days.
Charlie: Three times...
In the laundromat the dryer on the left of Raymond is closed/open between shots.
Throughout the movie, Raymond is taking pictures. The pictures that he takes are shown as the background for the credits.
Most airline versions of the film completely cut out the discussion of crash statistics. The reference to Qantas being the only international airline to have a perfect service record was deleted from the in-flight version of the movie by all international airlines except for Qantas.
