Dismissed picture

Plot hole: It seems highly unlikely that Lucas would be able to "mess with" Mr. Butler's application for a professorship position, or be able to accomplish what he did in such a short amount time. Off-screen, Lucas went into Mr. Butler's briefcase (foolishly left on his desk in the classroom during lunchtime) and (correctly) assumed Mr. Butler's application was on his laptop. Lucas would have to be able to figure out Mr. Butler's password (something that could take forever), find the right file on his laptop, read or scan the application to determine what he could do to mess it up, write a new answer for "qualities that make me a good teacher", and leave the classroom before anyone saw him. Lucas would also have to assume that Mr. Butler would not notice the change when he printed the application, made a photocopy, and double-checked the application before inserting it in the envelope and mailing it.

Security picture Security mistake picture

Factual error: Throughout the whole movie, whenever federal agents (or people posing as such...) tasked with the case are shown, they wear uniforms with "U.S.A. Marshals" written in big yellow letters. Of course the one and only correct spelling would be "U.S. Marshal"

Jeepers Creepers III picture

Plot hole: Buddy is seen at the end of the movie going on the bus that will be featured in Jeepers Creepers 2. When the students and staff encounter the Creeper why didn't he inform anyone that he had encountered the Creeper earlier? The only person that seemed to know anything was one of the girls having a premonition.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Buddy is getting on the bus to go to the basketball game. When the second films begins, the kids on the bus are celebrating their victory. Presumable Buddy just stayed in the other town for the night or got another ride home.
