Continuity mistake: In the scene at the end of the film when the Z-Boys finally get to skate in Sid's empty pool, the skateboard that is left on the steps changes position every other shot. When the guys first get into the pool, it is facing board-side out. In the next shot, it is facing wheel-side out. Then it alternates back and forth until the end of the scene.
Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Goodman is in the establishment where his future wife is working. There is a shot where it shows his beer glass with about 2 inches of head on it. The angle changes and in a matter of seconds, the head on the beer is gone.
Continuity mistake: The police that come to the aid of the professor are driving an older Ford when they approach than when they arrive to help. The car is a newer model in the later scene.
Continuity mistake: Just before Secretariat's first race, the main characters are discussing tactics in the parade ring. In the background is a jockey in pink and gold colours standing by his horse. When the shot changes angles he is mounted and being led out onto the race track. This means that he would have only taken one second to mount and travel a distance of about 10 meters. A couple of shots later he suddenly appears again, but this time he is being led into the saddling-up area, even though the jockey is already on board.
Continuity mistake: The jersey on the chimp goes back and forth between Ribchimpsky (the injured player) and Jack. The numbers on the jersey change as well.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Stallone gets hit by the UFC fighter, he doesn't see the hit coming because he gets hit from his right side.

However, during the Grudge Match, he is suddenly blind in his left eye.
Continuity mistake: When Eric arrives at the docks and gets out of his car and approaches Ned, watch Eric's car in the background. There's nobody else in view at this point, but you can see that something is being splashed onto the car. In a shot a couple of seconds later, Colonel Dugan and some of the other Alpha Elite boys come from out of hiding from nearby and one boy starts splashing gas onto the car.
Continuity mistake: When the team has their first game against the old guys, the first shot by the lead is wrong. Watch carefully and you will notice that the direction of the rotation of the stones changes about three times from clockwise to counter-clockwise during the same shot.
