The Replacements

Continuity mistake: In the first game that they play, the Sentinels receive the kickoff, the shot of the guy catching the ball was from a far away view, then on the next kick off its an up close view of the player catching the ball but if you notice, the player does the exact same thing in both catches. Which means that they put the same catch in there, just different views of it.

Continuity mistake: In the final game, the running back hurts his knee. Two plays after that, Reeves is running with the ball. Throughout the run, the ball switches back and forth from being carried in his left arm to his right arm.

Continuity mistake: Watch the Chinese spare rib in Jamal Jackson's hand while he, his brother Andre, Jumbo, and Nigel are eating after the first practice. He throws it down, then in his next shot, he is eating it again, then it switches to an overhead, where he's not eating, then you see him again with it back in his hand.

Continuity mistake: When the placekicker sets up for the long field goal, they show him flick his cigarette away and blow smoke twice. Once after he has initially set up, then again after they cut to the guys he owes money watching him on TV.

Continuity mistake: When Nigel kicks a man, in one shot his hand is on his head, but in the very next shot it isn't.


Continuity mistake: When Nigel, the Welsh place kicker for the Sentinels, sets up to make his first field goal for 65 yards, he is shown in a close-up with his helmet chin-strap buckled properly. The camera cuts away from him to the ball, then back to him where his chin-strap is dangling loose on his helmet, cuts away again to the ball, and finally back to him a third time where his chin-strap is once again buckled properly.

Trivia: The movie is supposed to be in Washington D.C. Starting with the 1997 season, Washington moved from RFK stadium in DC to a stadium in Landover, MD. So the movie was filmed in Baltimore, MD. They used Camden Yards, Orioles stadium, and the stadium where the Ravens play.

More trivia for The Replacements

Question: When Martel plays with the replacement players, he keeps throwing passes to the opposing team and keeps making his team either miss the ball entirely or gives the ball to another player causing them to be tackled. He then tells O'Neil that he can't play with a team like them. Is he deliberately doing all of this because he wants the replacements to lose? I find it hard to believe that he can't work with the team when it looked very obvious to me that what he was doing was intentional.

Answer: He is deliberately making them look bad. Purposely throwing interceptions, running plays that will not gain any yardage. He tells O'Neil he can't play with them because he is lying.
