Continuity mistake: In the tractor tipping scene, Mater demonstrates to McQueen how to do it using two tractors before Mcqueen's first try. And then when McQueen accelerates to make the noise and we have a wide open shot of the field, we can see that all the tractors in the field are still turning. Missing are the two already done by Mater. (00:55:40 - 00:56:25)
Continuity mistake: When Vince returns the fumbled punt for a touchdown they show shots of Vince from the end zone with players running behind him. In one shot you can see 57 over Vince's left shoulder about 2-3 yards back, then in the next shot 57 is running about 10 yards behind Vince, and then in next shot you can see 57 over Vince's left shoulder again about 2-3 yards back.
Continuity mistake: Anne's hand is shaking pretty hard when she reaches out to give Paul the engagement ring back (the shot is from Paul's point of view). The camera cuts to a view from behind Anne and her hand is suddenly very still for the duration of that shot. The shot changes back 10 seconds later to be from Paul's view and Anne's hand is shaking again.Nick Bylsma
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: 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.
