Corrected entry: In the scene when Billy is having dinner with his father and his co-workers, when Billy is eating his soup, the soup never enters his mouth.

Corrected entry: When Billy is calling Danny McGrath closer towards the end of the movie, you can hear the ringer ringing before he is done dialing.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie Billy says he'll go to school for 2 weeks per school-year which gives him 24 weeks to go all the way to graduation. His dad says if he finishes by June 15th he wins. Billy was just in the pool no more than a day ago and it was obviously pretty warm outside, how is this possible if it's 24 weeks from June 15th? That would make it December the previous year.
Corrected entry: During the music sequence, Billy is still wet. Somehow Veronica is dry, and changed, and the whole 3rd grade class joins in the sequence but Veronica came alone.
Corrected entry: In the end, when Billy is graduating, his academic robes are actually that of a Doctorate. You can see that his sleeves have stripes on them. Only doctoral robes have those stripes.

Corrected entry: When Billy is in the first grade, he is making a snowman. All the other students are making perfect looking snowmen with cotton balls, but Billy's is nothing but a huge mess of cotton balls, construction paper, and paste. It looks nothing like a snowman. However, when Billy is outside of school and is putting the moves on one of his classmate's moms, his teacher, Miss Lippy, brings out all his stuff from class that day, including his snowman, which now looks absolutely perfect.
Corrected entry: In the part where he is putting water on his pants because its cool, the water pours out. But the kid before him had to keep pumping to get water out.
Corrected entry: When Billy drives to his first day of high school you hear him turning off the engine of the car. If you look at the hood scoop, it is still shaking because the car is still running.
High School Principal: Mr. Madison, what you've just said, is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listen to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Billy Madison: Ok, a simple "wrong" would have done just fine.
