Revealing mistake: In the London scene, when the main characters prepare for the Centipede attack (the scene with the football players) there is a grey Land Rover which has a fake UK number plate on it. Plus since the film was filmed in Canada, the car also has left hand drive windscreen wipers.

Revealing mistake: When Brenner and Cooper are at a bar, they are watching a news report of Cooper at a school reading to a group of children. There are a couple of times in the report that show a shot of the children, but whenever the shot is on Cooper, there are no cameras in sight that would be used to film the shots of the children, revealing that the shots of Cooper and the shots of the children were filmed separately.

Factual error: When the younger Brenner and Cooper are at the arcade, one of the games shown being played is Q*bert. Q*bert wasn't first released in the US until October 1982 and at the end of the scene, Cooper shows Brenner a paper for an upcoming arcade game championships dated July 26th 1982.

Trivia: Futurama's "Anthology of Interest II" episode contained a segment called "Raiders of the Lost Arcade" where Fry asks what would happen if life was more like a video game. In the segment, video games come to life and attack Earth, and it's up to Fry to save the day because of his video game playing skills. Billy West, who voices Fry, later performed voices in "Pixels", which was based on this premise.

Question: The aliens in the form of Hall and Oates tell the heroes that the rules have been violated and they will attack. How and why were they violated?

Answer: The rules were violated when Eddie used cheat codes during the "Pac-Man" round in order to have an unfair advantage over the aliens; this is similar to how Xbox achievements and/or PS3/4 trophies are disabled when cheat codes are active.
