Factual error: In the scene where the guys are in the cafe, the waiter pours coffee, then puts his hand underneath the hot coffee pot. You cannot do that with a true glass coffee pot if your coffee is hot. (00:43:30)

Factual error: Why is it that when Kyle and the Fat girl are on the swing, her side is down about 1 and a half feet from him. It's supposed to be funny because she's fat. But it's not becuase metal chains are holding the bench.. you cannot bend metal that thin that far without breaking it.

Factual error: First, there is no Ithaca University in Ithaca, New York. The two main universities are Ithaca College and Cornell University. Second, Ithaca, New York doesn't look like that.

Factual error: The first time it shows Josh calling Tiffany he only pushes seven numbers. A call from N.Y. to TX would require 1-(area code)- then seven numbers = 11 digits.

Plot hole: When Beth is in Josh's room she picks up the card that simply reads "Love Tiffany" and asks "who's Tiffany Henderson?" She couldn't have known her last name. (00:15:30)

Question: Why didn't Beth or Josh report Jacob to the faculty for everything he was doing in terms of bothering Beth? Jacob tells Josh to back off because Beth is "spoken for", he tries to win Beth at EL's party, but gets ignored by EL after Josh can't outbid him anymore, so Josh ends up winning, and he even tries to get Josh expelled from Ithaca University by pretending to be his Ancient Philosophy teacher and telling him that he can take his exam at a later date when Josh phones him from a payphone whilst on the road trip to Austin.

Answer: It's funnier if Jacob constantly bothers the characters and gets away with it, and receives his comeuppance in the end in an over the top manner (he forms a suicide cult but is the only member that actually kills himself).
