Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Mox comes downstairs and is talking to his father at the breakfast table his Father has his tie over his shoulder, then the little brother comes in the room and knocks the tie off his shoulder, then the camera goes back and forth and the tie is on shoulder, then off the shoulder. (00:03:36)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Lance is walking out of his house, a wide shot shows the screen door is shut. When it cuts to him he's walking out from inside the house and the screen door is already open. (00:04:35)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: When Billy Bob is going to talk to Lance at the beginning, he walks from a point about 5 feet in front of the truck instead of around the front of the truck. (00:04:50)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: When Tweeder says he's going to have carnal knowledge of Billy Bob's pig, he has his arm on BB's shoulder so that BB's number was behind his arm. It switches shots and the numbers are in front of Tweeder's arm. (00:05:50)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: In the shots at the beginning when driving to school Lance and Tweeder switch positions many times. First Lance is in the rear driver's side corner and Tweeder is in the front passenger's side corner. Then Lance is in the same corner and Tweeder is in the rear passenger's side corner. Then in the final shot Tweeder and Lance have switched corners. (00:06:00)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: When Tweeder is showing Mox the endzone dance, in the background you can see Lance getting shot up with steroids. When Mox looks into the room he's getting shot up again. (00:10:10)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: After the first completion to Tweeder the scoreboard says the ball is on the 38 yard line. An incomplete pass is the next play and all of a sudden they are on the 20 yard line. (00:10:55 - 00:11:45)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: In the first game Lance completes a pass to Tweeder down near the goal line (the ref waves his hands above his head which means completed pass and runs to mark the spot). The next play Lance passes the ball straight out into the flat to the running back, but it's at the 30 yard line. (00:10:55)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: In the first game when Billy Bob says, "We're punching it in for 6," the quarterback (to BB's left - BB plays right guard) is wearing number 5. Lance is number 7. (00:11:45)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: When the coach is yelling at Moxon and he's grabbed him by the facemask, he has an overhand grip in one shot and an underhand grip the next. (00:20:30)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: In the game after Billy Bob passes out, the defense stops the opposing team and lance runs out onto the field. Billy Bob is already in the huddle. The next cut shows Coach Kilmer telling Billy Bob, who is on the bench taking oxygen, that he "needs him for one more series." (00:29:05)

Continuity mistake: When Lance gets hurt, the guy who tackled him is partly laying on him, but in the next shot he's not on him at all. (00:29:50)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: On Moxon's first play they start on their 25 yard line (huddled on the 15 and went 10 yards when the huddle broke). The announcer says he throws a 40 yard pass, which would put the catch on the 35 yard line. When Tweeder caught it he only got about five yards running, so when it couldn't have been on the 16, where Tweeder got up, or like the scoreboard said a second later. (00:32:10)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: When the cop car pulls up on Moxon (with Tweeder driving) it says "West Canaan Sheriff," a local law officer. The next day the cop in the restaurant says "They stole a state trooper car" which is a totally different law organization. (00:40:15 - 00:42:35)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: When Tweeder comes in the car he pulls in almost perpendicular to the sidewalk. Moxon stands next to the car when he gives the girl his jacket. When the car leaves, it's no longer perpendicular to the sidewalk and Moxon is standing about 5 feet from it. (00:40:45)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: The announcer says that Moxon just had a 40 yard scramble when playing the Broncos. It cuts to the scoreboard and the ball was only on the 20 yard line. (00:44:25)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: In the game against the Wildcats, the first shot is of the team on the 45 yard line. He rolls back about 10 yards and gets sacked. The next shot is of the scoreboard and it says the ball is on the 15, when it should be on the 35. (01:04:00)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: In the first "Oopdy Oop" play in the game it has Moxon looking to his left, then cuts and he immediately throws right without ever turning. (01:32:10)

Joel Gordon

Continuity mistake: In the first "Oopdy Oop" play it has Tweeder being tackled. It cuts and Tweeder is falling down again in the next shot. (01:32:10)

Joel Gordon

Factual error: Right after Tweeder scores the first TD in the second half against Gilroy, it shows one of the Gilroy players on the bench take off his helmet while on the field and throw it down. This should be an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty as well as a too many men on the field penalty against them. (01:33:00)

Joel Gordon

Billy Bob: It's a strip club, man. I'm here to work.

Question: Can someone tell me why Ms. Davis is a stripper? She surely makes enough as a teacher so why is she a stripper?

Rob245

Answer: Actually, in the United States public school teachers do not make very much money. While it is unusual for a school teacher to be an exotic dancer (doing so would jeopardize your teaching job were it discovered), it is not uncommon for teachers to have a second job to help pay bills. Exotic dancers typically work nights and can make a good amount of money in tips, so it would be a good second job for a teacher provided you can keep it secret.

Thank you but I must disagree. I've read a book by Ann Coulter about teacher earnings, teacher awards, some were caught shopping at fine retailers during school hours, one social studies teacher who made around $42,000 a year had called in sick several times to pursue a career in pro wrestling.

Rob245

Well, I'm a public school teacher of 20+ years, and many of my colleagues, including myself, have to work additional jobs in order to make ends meet, be it tutoring, working part time jobs, or working full time in the summer. This varies from district to district and with personal situations, of course, but teaching is hardly a job for people who like to 'shop at fine retailers.' Not that I'm accusing Ms. Coulter of having a political agenda and trying to claim that those odd examples are the norm.

Brian Katcher

Define "enough money"? Some cherry picked examples don't make a universal truth, and you say yourself that one teacher earning 42k had a second job. If you've got multiple children to feed or high rent or high medical bills or a parent to care for even a large salary isn't always enough. A book by a famously controversial (read: biased and hated) author doesn't mean people aren't allowed to have second jobs for whatever reason they deem fit.

Depends on the state. In 2018, schools in Oklahoma were shortened to a 4-day week so some teachers could get second jobs at Walmart to help make ends meet.
