Audio problem: When Benny and the others are looking at the destroyed baseball, when Benny and Kenny are talking their mouths are out of sync with what they are saying.

Continuity mistake: When the gang are at the pool the sky changes between shots from a cloudy day to a sunny day, especially when they're kicked out of the pool.

Continuity mistake: When Squints yells "no!" and the gang run towards the fence to stop Smalls, Yeah-Yeah's hat appears and disappears between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Squints is at the pool, his hair goes from flat down to sticking up, espically when he kisses Wendy.

Continuity mistake: When the gang are jumping into the pool (minus Ham) there is a life guard watching the shallow end - in one shot he is leaning foward but when Ham says "Oh sexy" he is sitting up straight.

Audio problem: When Yeah-Yeah goes over the fence, he's panting but his breathing doesn't match his mouth or shoulder movements.

Revealing mistake: When Benny jumps off the fence, it's obvious it's a stunt person doing it instead.

Continuity mistake: When Wendy sees that Squints is drowning she takes her sunglasses and whistle and throws them off the tower, but when she gets back on her tower after kicking the boys out they are back.

Continuity mistake: When Wendy is giving mouth to mouth to Squints her head is next to his chin, but when we cut back to her she is now 5 inches away from it. Her hair also moves from the left to the right. (00:37:00)

Continuity mistake: Scotty is collecting the baseball from under the bushes. The ball rolls to a stop and the name is square level. When Scotty scoops the ball up the name is now at an angle.

Neil Jones

Continuity mistake: During one attempt to retrieve the ball, the boys use a pot attached to a long piece of angle iron. When they flip the whole contraption over to grab the ball, the part of angle iron outside the fence is still facing in the original direction.

Hamm: You play ball like a girl!

Question: At the end of the movie, it shows Benny managing to steal home, being called safe, the catcher arguing that Benny was out and the umpire saying Benny was safe. In slow motion, it shows the catcher catching the ball and tagging Benny as he slides into home so why wasn't Benny called out?

Answer: The umpire got the call wrong in that case. It happens all the time in real life. It wasn't allowed back then, but now Major League Baseball and other sports leagues will use instant replay to make sure they get close calls right.

Answer: The catcher tags Benny on the chest after he touches home plate with his left hand. Safe.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: The film shows Benny beating the tag. Although the ball gets there before Benny, the catcher tags Benny a split second after his hand touches home plate.
