Revenge of the Nerds (1984)

Continuity mistake: At the skit competition, the RHO class is in a boat with the waves moving. They stop moving their oars when the sorority girls pop their heads up. The waves continue to move while the girls are briefly singing, even though the guys are not moving their oars. However, after the girls go back down, the waves have stopped, and only move again when the guys move their oars.

Suggested correction: There is no evidence at all that the oars are moving the waves. It is more likely some people offscreen are doing it.

Continuity 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. (01:21:25 - 01:23:00)
