Continuity mistake: In the beginning during the Indiana Jones parody one of the men pulls a gun on Weird Al with his left hand. Then Al lashes his whip, slicing his arm clean off. Then we see a RIGHT arm fall to the ground, gripping the gun in its hand. [Explanation: The live scene was shot one morning, and the actor who had his arm whipped off was cleared and went home. After lunch the prosthetic arm was delivered, and it was the wrong arm. They were on such a tight budget that they couldn't delay the shot, and flipping the negative (so right becomes left and vice versa) wasn't an option because the scene with the small pond had already been shot, and couldn't now be shown in reverse. This is from Weird Al's website, www.weirdal.com.] (00:01:40)

Visible crew/equipment: Just after our two heroes have been fired from Big Edna's, a black Porsche crosses the screen treating us to a perfect reflection of the sound man, complete with boom and Sennheiser microphone. Really, it's that clear. (00:07:55)

Continuity mistake: As Philo sets up his camera in Fletcher's office, he has a pencil in his mouth. In a subsequent shot, the pencil is gone. He did not remove the pencil as he was working on the camera the entire time. (This is even mentioned in the DVD commentary.). (01:00:15)

Mistakes

George comes up with the idea to raise money via a public share issue in Channel 62 around mid-morning, and promptly announces the telethon on the air and by midnight of the same day they have the money they need. One problem. Even if George had access to a compliant attorney and Channel 62 was already a company authorised to issue shares, a public issue would take at least ten days to organise. There are all sorts of notice periods and filing dates to which the share issuer must adhere. I know - I've done it.
