Step Brothers

Factual error: A video is shown of Derek Huff singing "Ice Ice Baby" at a school talent show that took place when his brother Brennan was 17. Robert states his desire to retire in "in two years," in 2010, making the movie's setting 2008. Brennan is 39 in the film, placing the talent show 22 years ago in 1986. The song "Ice Ice Baby", recorded by Vanilla Ice, came out in the summer of 1990.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Alice spells words with her food on her dinner plate asking to have sex, the very next view of her shows a smaller plate in front of her.

Visible crew/equipment: When Brennan and Dale are talking about the drum set in the living room, you can see a crew member on the glass window.

Continuity mistake: The bottle of ketchup in the dinner table scene, early in the movie, alternates from right side up to upside down, from shot to shot.

Continuity mistake: In the christmas scene where they are decorating the tree, we see Robert eating a christmas-tree shaped biscuit. When he gets up, the biscuit is suddenly larger and more whole than before, where it was almost finished.

Revealing mistake: In the scenes in which Brennan and Dale are fighting with the young children in the park, it is clear that in quite a few shots the children have been replaced with doubles.

Continuity mistake: When Brennan and Dale first meet on the front lawn, they stand and stare at each other for a while. With every shot change, it continues to change from either being sunny or shadowy in the spot where Brennan stands.

Revealing mistake: In the dog poo scene, as Brennan is licking the poo, you can see it's a powdered donut.

Continuity mistake: When Brennan and Dale are watching TV, there's a blue can of Pepsi on a table, but in the next shot the blue can disappears from the table.

Continuity mistake: After the first dinner scene with the family, Dale finally decides to leave and head upstairs. He places his napkin down next to his plate. In the next shot it has vanished. It then reappears a few shots later.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Brennan is showing Dale his sword with Randy Jackson's name on it, his hands switch from having one hand on the hilt to both hands and back when the camera angle cuts to behind Brennan, and back again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene with the bullies, as the bullies are approaching and one says, "Hey, fag stick," Dale and Brennan are stationary next to a tree. When he says,"Long time no see," they are moving to the same position again.

Continuity mistake: When Dale and Brennan are fighting over the drum kit, Brennan throws Dale into the gong and it falls over. In the next shot it is standing again.

Visible crew/equipment: When we see Nancy, Robert, Dale and Brennan on the boat, as the camera pans past Robert and Nancy, you can see the camera reflected in the shiny post of the boats wheel.

Continuity mistake: Near the start when Nancy and Robert first meet and are undressing themselves, Robert removes his jacket in a wideshot and his shirt and tie are still on. But in the next closeup the tie has vanished and he is suddenly unbuttoning his shirt.

Continuity mistake: When Dale tells Brennan he needs to hear him sing, Brennan has a sword and is swinging it around. After he sings, he gets up and the sword is shown on the floor in its scabbard. They flash to Brennan, then back to Dale and the sword is gone.

Visible crew/equipment: When Brennan and Dale are on the stage at the wine mixer, Brennan sings opera and when Dale plays the drums you can see a crewmember reflected underneath the cymbal.

Continuity mistake: After Nancy and Robert ban TV for a week, Brennan throws the ice pack he was holding on the ground. The camera then cuts to Robert, and when it cuts back to Brennan again just a few seconds later, he has the ice pack again and does the exact same action as before.

Continuity mistake: In the dinner scene where Derek is over, he is telling a story to Robert about fishing. During the whole scene if you watch Alice who is sitting beside Derek, her wine glass repeatedly jumps from her hands to back on the table instantly.

Continuity mistake: When the Billy Joel cover band is performing at the Catalina Wine Mixer, the guitarist is using a Divided by 13 head/cab. This is the green amp located by the drum riser. However, when Dale and Brennan take the stage, the amp has changed to a green Mesa/Boogie Stilleto Ace combo. You can see the Divided by 13 in the shot after the musicians have left, when Robert is explaining how he wanted to be a dinosaur behind Brennan's back, which shows that it wasn't moved by the musicians.
