Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Continuity mistake: During the opening scene with Ego and Quill's mother, they run into the woods behind the Dairy Queen, and mom is wearing boots with fur trim. When they get to where the Ego's plant is in the ground, she is suddenly wearing sandals.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when the guardians are getting ready to fight off an interdimensional being Rocket winks a couple of times at Starlord. Starlord then responds but is looking to his left at Rocket, whilst Rocket is on his right side. The scene is for no reason mirrored, proven by the big orange device behind him also switching from being on his left to on his right. (00:03:45)

Revealing mistake: When Taserface is threatening Rocket, Rocket is making eye contact. Taserface, meanwhile, is looking at the space between Rocket's ears.

Continuity mistake: In the scene early in the movie where Kurt Russell and Star Lord's mother walk in the woods behind the Dairy Queen, she has on boots with fur tops as they walk down the hill, and has sandals on while standing in the clearing near the god plant.

Factual error: At the very beginning of the film it says that it's 1980 Missouri with a nuclear power plant in the background. The plant in the film has 4 cooling towers, but the only nuclear plant in Missouri (Callaway Nuclear Generating Station) has only one cooling tower and it didn't begin operation until 1984.

Continuity mistake: While Yondu is explaining how he tracked the Milano, and who sent him and why, look at the 3 arrows pinned to Yondu's jacket when he first appears. Once he starts his walk around while explaining, there are only 2 arrows. After the scene returns from Nebula and baby Groot, the shot seems to be mirrored, with the three arrows in a different position. (00:40:15)

Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket: He hates hats.
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket: On anyone, not just himself.
Groot: I am Groot.
Rocket: One minute you think someone has a weird-shaped head, the next minute it's just because you realise part of that head is the hat. [To Groot] That's why you don't like hats?

Trivia: Vin Diesel was given a special "Groot" version of the script that contained "translations" of what Groot was actually saying whenever he utters his one and only repeated sentence "I am Groot." This was done to help him deliver his dialog appropriately, since he would know exactly what point Groot was trying to get across with each line. Reportedly, only Diesel was given this version of the script - in everyone else's script, Groot's dialog is merely "I am Groot" over and over again.

Question: Given there's only a few months between this movie and the previous one, that means it's set around 2014 vs. Infinity War being set in 2018, as best anyone can figure. Is there any official word on what the Guardians are up to in the intervening 4 years?

Chosen answer: Short answer: Probably nothing much good. In all that time Quinn still felt like a reaver, and Rocket doesn't deny he likes crime. Only Gamora keeps them at bay from doing anything really nasty. In the mean time they try to do good things, protect planets, hunt pirates, stuff like that. It's a crazy bunch of individuals.

Answer: They're mercenaries, like we see with the Sovereign. They do good things for money. We see this with the Sovereign, and Quill's comments make this seem like this is normal. Later, Rocket makes a comment about raising their prices. In Infinity War, they only respond to the Asgardian distress call because they expect to be paid.
