Other mistake: After Lane Meyer gets beaten up by the basketball team he goes out to his car and it has a flat tire. Not only does he not notice, but he gets in the car and drives away normally. (00:32:18)

Suggested correction: How is this a mistake? Lane just got raked over by an entire basketball team - he is exhausted, humiliated, injured, and wants to get out of the area immediately so he would not care his car has a flat tire.

Factual error: A native French speaker like Monique would never mistake the word 'testicle' for 'tentacle'. The French word for 'testicle' is 'testicule' and the word for 'tentacle' is 'tentacules' - both are pronounced almost identically to the English form. She'd have to confuse the two words in French, and not even a non-English speaking French person would make a mistake like that. Monique's English is very good. She'd be perfectly aware of what she was saying.,.
