The Replacements

Other mistake: When Orlando Jones uses the stickup for his hands, in the next play his hands are very clean, and if you have ever used it, you know what I am saying.

Other mistake: In the scene when Gene Hackman first meets Reeves on the boat, in the scene before that there is a long shot of the stadium that pans to the harbor. Notice the large sailboat in the river is going backwards.

Continuity mistake: During the last game he slides into the endzone and when he stops the centre of his body is clearly on a border of green field and grey field. But when the shot changes to a different camera he is nowhere close to any green field.

Jimmy McGinty: When the Washington Sentinels left the stadium that date, there was no tickertape parade, no endorsement deals for sneakers or soda pop, or breakfast cereal. Just a locker to be cleaned out, and a ride home to catch. But what they didn't know, was that their lives had been changed forever because they had been part of something great. And greatness, no matter how brief, stays with a man. Every athlete dreams of a second chance, these men lived it.

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.
