Goofs

Indiana does not require front license plates, though an Indiana plate can be seen on the front of Ben Wyatt's vehicle. However, front plates are optional. Ben is from Minnesota, where front license plates are required for safety and law enforcement reasons. It would fit with Ben's personality to also have a front plate, even if the law did not require it. See more »
