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.Twotall
Continuity mistake: After the entire team has muddy water splashed all over them by a car on the way to a game, Coach Roy's clothing is miraculously mud-free once he arrives at the school. Several other subsequent scenes in the same period of time had discrepancies in having mud or no mud on the team members' clothing, going back and forth.Wayne C.
Continuity mistake: When Chico and Harpo bring Groucho ice in his office at Huxley College, Harpo is wearing some kind of earmuffs. Between shots they change from going round his chin to behind his head.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after the half-time break in the International Tournement, Cliff Starkey has been to the sea to retrieve his "English Plasic and Asda bag" Bowls and starts playing with these again to improve his game and his luck. When we then see lots of shots of the UK Bowls smashing the Aussie bowls out of the way, (as we make a storming fightback) they are back to the blue ones again. Then it cuts back to the last few ends and he has the black plastic back.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Jimmy Muir is playing for Sheffield United against Manchester United, Annie and Ken stand up to cheer Jimmy on at what looks like a packed stadium. However, when they stand up, you can see dozens of empty seats behind them.
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.
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).
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lane, Tuff and Cody are talking about Leffow right before Lane rides there is no leather strip around Lane's neck to tie his glove on with. In the next shot he has the leather strip around his neck. (00:28:35)
Continuity mistake: Throughout the film, Burton is continuously called the wrong rank. He introduces himself to Huard as Lieutenant Commander Burton in the beginning. Then calls himself "A 36-year-old, out-of-shape Lieutenant" when he boxes Huard, and is called Lieutenant Burton by the boxing coach during the fight against Cole.
