Corrected entry: When Lewis follows Betty into the Fun House, he removes his glasses so he can wear the mask. We then see his point of view from behind the mask, as Betty leads him to the Moon Walk. He has pretty good eyesight. Everything is crystal clear making his eyeglasses seemingly unnecessary.



Correction: It's seen from his point of view, but not through his eyesight. It's a movie making convention, and not a mistake.


Corrected entry: When Poindexter is dancing to Beat It, an Omega Mu is seen coming down the stairs behind Poindexter. The next shot she is gone.


Correction: First of all, Poindexter is dancing to "Thriller", not "Beat It". Second, there's plenty of time between the shots for the girl to have moved out of frame.


Corrected entry: In the panty raid scene after the Tri Lambda's party, Watch as LaMar starts climbing the rope to get into the PI's attic. As he starts up the rope, he kicks his partner Wormser in the face.

Correction: Character mistake. As this is something that can easily happen in real life, it is not a movie mistake, even if it was unintentional from the actors.


Corrected entry: As Louis approaches the kissing booth to see Betty, Stan's Darth Vader helmet is laying on the table. Betty disses Louis and leaves the table. Louis removes his glasses and puts on the Vader helmet (pretending to be Stan) and follows after Betty into the moon walk. After they have sex (Louis pretending to be Stan) Louis reveals himself to Betty, and he's wearing the glasses again.


Correction: There is a long cut between the two scenes, more than enough time for him to sneak his glasses back on. Given the thickness of the lenses, he would need them to see.

Corrected entry: In the shot where Booger says to the Mus he's dancing with at the party and says "Damn, you Mus sure can party.", the nerd who wears a brown hat and has curly blonde hair is behind them. In the very next shot where Lewis is dancing with his Mu, the same nerd is dancing behind them.

Correction: The scene is not shown in real time, but in several brief shots throughout the entire party. The nerd with the brown hat simply moved around the dance floor a bit in between the two shots.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Gilbert and Lewis are being driven to college. The chest is on the top of the car. When they are shown close-up, there is no chest on top of the car. When the whole car is seen again, the chest is back.

Correction: The chest is on top of the car the entire time. The reason the chest is not seen in close-up shots is because in the close-up shots of Lewis, Gilbert and Mr. Skolnick, the chest is out of the frame.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Takashi crosses the finish line and wins the tricycle race, Ogre is shown lying on his stomach behind him. In the very next shot, Ogre is shown standing up and shaking his head in disbelief.

Correction: This isn't shown in real time. In the scene following Ogre shaking his head in disbelief, the nerds are shown carrying Takashi in victory, which would obviously require a little bit of time to set up, but was not actually shown, in the same way that Ogre climbing to his feet wasn't shown. The fact that they don't show every second of action does not constitute a mistake.

In the shot after Gilbert is dipped and gets soaked in the fountain by the Alpha-Betas, when he is up on the podium, you notice that he is almost dry, only his head is wet.



When director Jeff Kanew was interviewed by the producers, they asked what kind of movie he thought he could make given the material. He responded, "One I would be embarrassed to have my name on." They hired him immediately.
