Varsity Blues

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)

Continuity mistake: During the game, when Lance gets injured, Mox has to throw the ball to stop the clock. You can hear the announcer say "the clock's still running, the clock's still running" Later in the film where Mox has to stop the clock again, you hear the same announcer say the exact same thing but in a complete sentence, meaning they used a portion of the sentence for earlier in the film.

Continuity mistake: During the last game when Lance is coaching, in one scene he has the headset around his neck, then on his ears and then no headset, and the on his neck and it continues this way for quite a few scenes.

Continuity mistake: When Tweeter drives up to Mox at the convenience store, he says the girls in the car are naked, but if you look closely you can see that the girl in the front seat has a pair of jeans on.

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 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)

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?

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.

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.
