Revealing mistake: When Cindy and Buddy get trapped inside the cold chamber, she starts rubbing him to a point that it becomes masturbation. But when she's sitting on his legs doing the thing, in one side shot you can clearly see she is not holding his privates and her hand is just going up and down, closed but empty.
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Dwight is handing out the goggles, and right before the part where Brenda asks about the walkie-talkies, if you look behind Dwight, you will see that there is one more pair of goggles in the cabinet. After Brenda asks the question, the cabinet is empty.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, when Dwight gets pulled into the room and sits down in a chair beside Ray and Buddy, Ray's shirt is orange. Then when Dwight says, "I can't feel my legs," it cuts back, but Ray's shirt is yellow. It alternates throughout this scene between orange and yellow.
Revealing mistake: When the couple split the pole, they get hit by a bus. As the shot cuts to a wide shot, and if you pause in the right place, you can see the couple have been replaced by dummies, just before the bus hits them. [This isn't a "mistake" -- this is just dissecting a movie, frame by frame, until you can spot the special effects.]
Continuity mistake: When Dwight is handing everybody goggles, cup walkie talkies etc., the red numbers on the machine nearby keep changing in most shots. You can clearly see "02.38.58" and it is counting down. Then in the next shot it is "02.39.48" and is counting up. Then it is "02.17.00" etc.

Continuity mistake: In the scene after the main female characters portray Charlie's Angels, they go back to where the guy in the wheelchair has set up a pad that Cindy has to lure the ghost into, from one shot to the next (when Cindy goes to lure the ghost) Cindy's lipstick colour changes instantly from red to beige although her clothes stay the same.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene when the priest is playing the piano, in close shots of him you can see the back of the musical sheets sitting on the piano, and they are just pages of musical notes. Yet between two shots a book which says "Eckstein" appears. Then in the next close shot the "Eckstein" booklet isn't there and just musical sheets are visible.
Continuity mistake: When Cindy and Buddy are in the cool room and she is talking on the cups, you can see what appears to be blood on the bottom of her pants. In a scene cut from the film (it's on the DVD), Cindy covers the floor in blood before they get pushed into the cool room (spoofing Hollow Man). Since scene wasn't in the film, she shouldn't have the blood on the bottom of her pants.
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is driving along, singing, both of her windows are rolled down about halfway. We can see the window next to Cindy is rolled down halfway in the first two closeups of Cindy. It then cuts to a wideshot of the car and then another closeup, and the window is now fully winded down. Cindy clearly never winds the window down, it has just rolled down between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Megan is in bed (not the vomit scene), her hands are tied. But when Father Harris begins to pray "Holy Lord. Almighty Father", it's quite obvious that Megan's hands are untied. When it cuts her hands are tied again. Her hand is also suddenly untied when she says "Your mother sucks # in Hell".
Continuity mistake: When Cindy is driving along, singing along to a song in her car, in wide shots of the car, you can see the road she drives down has a white fence running along both sides of the road. But in shots of Cindy in her car, a white fence should be visible, but isn't there.
Deliberate mistake: When Shorty is showing Cindy some moves and they are doing the "Right, left, right, left" move, you can see three people walking right behind them. Then, suddenly, the people are gone without the scene being cut. The director has simply just overlapped the scenes while they are doing the moves.
Continuity mistake: When it shows Dwight and Theo together, Dwight goes to the stairs, and starts to climb up on his own, and Theo covers him. In one shot, as it shows Theo holding her gun out, there is a clock by her, and the time is 9:10. But when the shot changes, and Theo asks Dwight "Do you need help" the time has changed to 9:45
Continuity mistake: When Cindy rubs Buddy in the cold chamber, in one shot Cindy says "...and you're gonna have lots of little babies..." and behind Buddy's head, a black towel can be seen. It isn't there is any of the following shots, and wasn't there in any of the previous shots either.
Continuity mistake: When the character played by Kathereen Robertson walks into the dining room and asks the guys to get her a seat, Buddy places a seat right in front of her yet in the next scene, two chairs slide up to her followed by a wheelchair and Buddy seems to have teleported into a different room altogether.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, after the ghost is defeated, you see far away shots of Buddy, Brenda, and Kathleen Robertson's character standing together. From far away, Kathleen is on the end, and Buddy is in the middle. However, whenever the shot changes to a close-up of the three of them, Kathleen is now in the middle, and Buddy is on the end.
Continuity mistake: During the night, Ray is wearing a white singlet with a silver jersey over the top, Brenda is wearing a white tank top and Buddy is wearing a red T-shirt. When it cuts to the scene where Shorty is smoked by a giant majauana plant, Ray, Brenda and Buddy storm in with their casual clothing. Why would they need to change again?
Deliberate mistake: When spoofing Charlie's Angels, the chain that Cindy grabs a hold of as she jumps over the gate wasn't there when Hanson jumped through the gate. It seemed to just appear. This also happens with the baseball bat Hanson uses. It isn't there, until he needs to use it to hit Cindy.

Continuity mistake: After Dwight rolls down the stairs Theo says "Look I know you're proud, OK, but just lemme help" then Dwight says "Step it back Candypants" to her, and he points at her, holding his gun in his hand. Then when the shot changes, the gun is now laying on the stairs, and Dwight's hand is empty.
Continuity mistake: One of the deleted scenes on the DVD shows the students suggesting ideas while the news reporters on TV discourage these ideas by reporting on strikes and recalls. The recall mentioned all Japanese cars exploding in rain. Cindy's car explodes, but hers is a Volkswagen, which is German.
Continuity mistake: After Cindy and Buddy decide to be friends and talk about 'stuff', Buddy starts talking about this Spanish girl doing some nasty stuff with him. At this point, the shot cuts and if you look at the floor you can see they are suddenly in a different part of the house.
