Kickboxer picture

Continuity mistake: When Kurt goes grocery shopping for Xian, some kids splash him with water from the pump. During the entire rest of the scene, the water marks on his shirt keep changing size and shape, and grow quite considerably from the first small sprinkle. In addition, the back of his shirt is completely dry when he goes up to the store, but when the fight breaks out, almost all of his back is wet, and these stains also change shape from one moment to the next.

Everyone's Hero picture

Continuity mistake: When Yankee goes into his bedroom after losing the baseball game in the sandlot, he tears a hand-drawn picture of himself, Babe Ruth and his dad off the wall. The pieces of the picture fall on the bedroom floor. A few shots later the pieces are missing. Yankee was the only one in the room, and he didn't move them. Plus the window is closed, so it couldn't have been wind.

Gridiron Gang picture

Continuity mistake: In the last game of the season, little used receiver 88 catches a long pass and runs/falls out of bounds, stopping the clock with 11 seconds left. The clock then starts before the snap of the ball (ball is actually snapped with 1 second left). A play out of bounds should stop the clock until the ball is snapped on the next play (in this way, they should have had time for a couple of plays).
