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: In the beginning of the movie, we see Keanu clean the boat and then throw a football under water. The scene changes between different shots and we can see Keanu sometimes standing on the ground and sometimes in midwater (most noteable before he swims to the surface). (00:01:50)

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.
