Road Trip mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the "fat" girl is sitting on the swing flirting with the geeky guy, she smiles and has perfect, straight teeth, in no need of braces. Later, in the scene where the geeky guy is introducing the fat girl to his dad at the door, the fat girl smiles and has braces on.

Continuity mistake: When Josh and Beth are making the sex tape in his room with his camera, his legs (and some other minor parts of his body) are in an entirely different position from what is seen later on the sex tape whenever someone watches it in the movie.

Continuity mistake: There is a snake in a glass cage in the dormitory room. Several times in the same scene the snake completely changes positions in the cage.

Continuity mistake: The car has no number plate holder on it when the guys first get in it, but when they're standing on the bridge just about to jump it, the car has a number plate holder.


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.

Visible crew/equipment: When the snake attacks Jacob on the neck the camera zooms in and goes down with him.To the left you can see the camera's shadow very briefly. It's definitely the camera because Beth and Barry are over the room.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the car blows up after jumping the bridge they walk away from the car and are lined up just before it explodes and after it explodes E.L. turns slightly then realises that he's not supposed to yet he quickly turns back. This is before they all turn around in unison.

Continuity mistake: When we first see Josh's letter to Tiffany, notice the handwriting. When he gets it out of her mailbox at college, the handwriting is totally different.


Visible crew/equipment: When Barry is explaining how Josh and Tiffany made a pact to be loyal, a cameraman sitting on a trolley and being pushed forward by another person is visible in Tiffany's TV. (00:03:55)

Continuity mistake: The morning after Beth and Josh have sex, Barry is playing on the acoustic guitar. Between shots it is either on his lap or on the stand. There is not enough time to put it on the stand between shots. (00:19:25)

Rubin: It's supposed to be a challenge, that's why they call it a shortcut. If it was easy it would just be the way.
