Corrected entry: When Benjamin is holding the snake at the video shoot, a large film light is reflected in his glasses.

Correction: They are filming a music video and a lot of filming equipment is visible throughout the scene.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when everyone is in Wayne's basement, we see Benjamin painfully walk up to Wayne's house for each ending in the dark. When the scene changes to Wayne's basement for the first ending, you can see through the basement window directly behind them that it's broad daylight. This is especially easy to see when the equipment starts to spark. (01:22:25 - 01:23:45)

Correction: It could just as well be from a flood light. In all likelihood this scene was filmed on a sound-stage, where there would be no natural light to speak of.

Corrected entry: When Wayne goes to get Cassandra, he manages to find the video shoot quite easily considering that Cassandra only told him that she was going to Chicago, not where in Chicago she was going to.

Correction: Not everything that occurs between characters is shown on camera. Just because we didn't see her tell him, does not mean that she didn't.


Corrected entry: Camera film does not unravel out of the camera like it did when Wayne opened the camera on the video set - if it is still in use, it should stay where it is. If it is fully rewound, why is it still in the camera?

Correction: Perhaps inaccurate but clearly done for comic effect and as such is not a mistake.


Corrected entry: Wayne gets fired from the show and then is told by Benjamin that the show now belongs to him, so how does he broadcast it from his basement at the end? The network would not have allowed it and Benjamin could have had the last laugh and sued him.

Correction: They break into the station and steal a bunch of equipment. Garth uses his computer skills to broadcast the show. Completely far-fetched, but so was the rest of the movie.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Russell and Benjamin are flattering Vanderhoff into sponsoring the show, Vanderhoff mentions how he doesn't talk about specific video games in his commercials. However, at the very beginning of the film in his advert (watched by Benjamin and a girl in bed) he can be heard listing some of the video games available at his arcade.

Correction: Vanderhoff means that he does not talk about the video games (characters, story, weapons, etc). He did not mean that he does not name some of the games he has.

Factual error: When Wayne and Garth are driving to the Alice Cooper concert in Wisconsin, they pass palm trees while driving the expressway from Chicago. There are no palm trees on any expressway in Illinois or Wisconsin. (00:57:00)

Trivia: The police officer in Stan Makita's Donut Shop is named Koharski, in reference to NHL Referee Don Koharksi. After poorly officiating game 3 of the 1988 playoff series between the Devils and Bruins, Devils coach Jim Shoenfeld and Koharsky argued on the way to the dressing rooms. Koharsky fell and told Shoenfeld he'd be suspended for pushing him, and that it was all on film. Shoenfeld said, "Good, cause you tripped and fell you fat pig, have another donut.". All this was shown on ESPN.

Question: Can anyone explain to me the scene in which Wayne is pulled over by a cop and shown a picture? I know it's supposed to be funny, but I don't get the joke.

Answer: You presumably haven't seen Terminator 2. The actor playing the cop is Robert Patrick, who played the shape-shifting T-1000 in that movie, who masqueraded as a policeman for most of the film. The T-1000's mission was to track down and terminate a boy - hence the "have you seen this boy" line that he says to Wayne.
