Continuity mistake: When Grandma is dancing at the church, her shoes change from heels to flats.

Continuity mistake: When they are first getting in to Loc Dog's paper truck and close the back door, there is nothing on it. Yet when they drive away in another scene, on the back of the truck is "Janet Wuz Here" in red spray paint. Then, in the next scene, it is gone again.

Continuity mistake: When Ashtray is having his hair cut by his father, the towel around his body to catch the hair disappears and reappears throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: When Ashtray and his father are fishing, his father's hair is braided. However, in the scene before that his father's hair is cut really short.

Continuity mistake: During the part where Loc Dog bets Ashtray that he can get the girl's number, there's a guy dancing directly behind Ashtray wearing a purple shirt and purple hat. The shot changes and we see Loc Dog getting the girl's number, the guy in purple is now over there behind them. When the shots go back and forth, he is both behind Loc Dog and Ashtray.


Continuity mistake: When Loc Dog goes for his job he sits down and fills out the application form. The man next to him talks about how great he his then the camera moves away. The secretary then lifts Loc Dog's form beside her but we never actually seen him give it to her.

Continuity mistake: When Dashiki is reading her man-hating poem to Ashtray, there are two baby bottles: one pink, the other white (or clear and filled with milk). There is also a baby toy or rattle of some sort lying next to one of the bottles and a plant to the right of the bottles. From one shot to the next, both the location and the colors of the white bottle continue to change, first white, then blue, then white again. Also, the baby toy completely disappears after the first shot of it and the plant moves further to the right until eventually, it/s missing off of the table altogether.

Continuity mistake: When the white man shoots the gun in the convenience store to knock down the lights on the cashiers, they show a close up of his hand shooting a Beretta, but when he throws the gun to Ashtray and Loc Dog, it's a Glock.

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the movie when Ashtray goes to get out of his car and hits the guy on the bike, the camera angle changes to show the crash from the other side of the car.

Revealing mistake: When taking the driving test Ashtray is driving down a street with on the left a parked white RV. After making a left turn, we see through the rear window he's driving down the same street.

Continuity mistake: When the guy is coughing heavily from the joint, there is a shot of the side of the table when he is on the ground. The side of the table shows a 40 oz bottle. When the camera turns to the rest of the boys that are watching him, that 40 oz bottle is gone. This keeps repeating several times.

Continuity mistake: In the "I-said-do-we-have-a-problem-here?" scene, the guys in the car get scared and reverse out of the shot. However, we hear the gears change a few times - I didn't know that there were gears when you were going in reverse...

Visible crew/equipment: When the homeless guy walks up to Loc Dog and says, "I'll suck yo' d**k", look in the background on Loc Dog's truck and you'll see the shadow of the boom mic pole.
