Character mistake: When Stan inflates himself, Michael asks, "How'd he do that?", implying that he doesn't know the rules of the Looney Tunes world. Since Michael was rolled into a ball by the aliens earlier in the film, this shouldn't be too much of a surprise.

Continuity mistake: When Stan's body has been "deflated", his body is laying over the 3-point line. Then when the doctors rush over to him, he is laying a good distance away from the 3-point line. When the air pump is stuck in his mouth in the very next shot, he is laying over the 3-point line again.

Continuity mistake: When the second player's talent is being taken near the start, we see the paused game clock which reads 6:07. We then cut to a different angle and it's now 6:13, and stays that way until the scene changes.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Michael is warming up in the Looney Tunes gym and takes a jump shot, the ball enters the basket as if he was shooting from the left side of the basket. He actually shot from the center of the court, so the ball should have gone in differently.
