Revealing mistake: When the cop drops off Brandy's dad and it first shows him with no leg, you can see his real leg behind him.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Joe finds his parents, when they are sitting in their trailer talking, his parents have a stuffed clown between them. Just before Joe asks them if there ever was a time when they'd be staring at the moon, the clown is slumped forward with its face not visible. In the next shot, when his mom starts her sales pitch about having clowns for sale, the clown is now standing upright between them.
Continuity mistake: The 8-track has name on front in the beginning, Then when Joe turns it down to show I.D, Its a completely different 8-track. But the same song is playing.
Continuity mistake: When Joe is left at the Grand Canyon by his parents, he is wearing a green "Life is a garden, dig it" T-shirt, but when he is strolling down the path at the Grand Canyon (you can see it behind him) he is wearing a plain white shirt.
Continuity mistake: When Clem stops dancing and starts talking to the fire extinguisher, he throws the duster broom handle down, which is in the same direction as the duster. Then when he asks question, "Does your mother sew?" the handle of duster is now sticking out the wrong way.
Continuity mistake: When Joe spins the tires for the security guy, The tire that's supposed to be spinning is on the left side. But after Joe says "does this look like a piece of crap to you?" It shows the right side spinning on close up 3 times, But when they show a wide shot of the car the right side is not spinning at all and the rubber burns are on the left side of the car.
Continuity mistake: When Joe is on the bridge and before he starts talking to Brandy, in some shots his boots are facing away from her, but in others you see him turned towards her.
Continuity mistake: When Joe peels out and the security arm goes down it is split near the lower part by the gear box. Then when security guy kisses the arm, the split is gone. Use slow mo and you can see it.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie in the scene with Joe and his parents, after Joe leaves the trailer, his dad has a beer in his left hand, then not, then again, then not.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie Joe wakes up at Brandi's house and they run out to find Joe's "hemi" sitting in front of the house. The camera shot shows the car from the right side, and you can see the rear-view mirror attached to the windshield. And shortly afterward when they all get in Joe's car, another camera angle shows the mirror as well. But when they're speeding away from the house the camera angle from the front of the car shows the mirror is no longer there.
Continuity mistake: When Brandy's dad has his foot stuck in the railroad tracks, from shot to shot he goes from being on the inside of the tracks, to the outside. Sometimes he's standing on the wood planks and other times he isn't.
Factual error: At the end when Joe, Brandy, Clem and Charlene, the alligator woman are in Joe's 1967 Plymouth GTX, Robby claims his car is faster. Charlene chides back about his Trans Am, saying 'you think you can match that little old slant six against his 426 Hemi?" Pontiac Trans-Am's did not come with slant sixes, a Dodge motor. His was obviously a V-8, and would have most likely have been a 400, but we get the 'yours is really small' reference.
Other mistake: When the old man gets his foot caught in the railroad switch, the switch closes on his foot, trapping him. As the camera pans out we see that this was not an electric switch but a hand throw switch, meaning that someone had to be standing at the switch manually operating it to close on the old guy's foot.
Continuity mistake: When daddy tells Joe & Brandy he's taking the dog hunting & opens the car door, Charlie's collar has a buckle to the back. Watch Charlie's buckle, It changes from back to front to back again.

Continuity mistake: When dealership guy says the best he can do is give Joe a print out, his hands never touch any keys to start printing the document.
Continuity mistake: When Joe Dirt meets the girl at the fair and is talking to her, in one shot her top straps are down, the very next shot she is pushing them down.
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Joe goes to Buffalo Bob's house, as he is pulling up to the house you can see the shadow of the camera man in the passenger's seat.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Joe, Brandi, Kickin' Wing, Gert B. Frobe, and the alligator girl are in his car, Robbie pulls up along side of them. Joe pulls out, spinning dirt and rocks toward Robbie's car, and a camera shot from inside his car shows Joe's car speeding away, and the windshield is completely clear. But in the very next shot, from in front of Robbie's car, the windshield is broken, and has 2 places where it appears as if large rocks had hit, but they weren't there seconds before, and the dust and flying rocks had already begun to clear by that time. It is illogical for a rock large enough to do that kind of damage to his windshield to have suddenly kicked up, judging from the distance it shows Joe's car away from Robbie's in the previous shot.
