The New Guy

Continuity mistake: During the General Patton speech before the football game, "Gill Harris" approaches a player wearing the number 19 on his jersey, who is black. During the football game you notice the player wearing number 19 on his jersey is now white. (00:45:45 - 00:47:00)

Continuity mistake: During the football game between Rocky Creek and Highland, when Rocky Creek hikes the ball and pinches it back, he is distracted and doesn't catch it. A player from Highland picks it up and runs for the touchdown. When one highland player is hitting a rocky creek player, in the bottom left corner of the screen, you see the ball mysteriously rolling on the ground. Then the next shot shows the same guy who picked up the ball making a touchdown. Two balls for one football game? (01:10:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gil has knocked out Connor and is trying to get the whole school to see it, he lifts him up against the wall where Connor falls into the trophy case, breaking the glass. Later on in the scene, when the principal comes out, they show the trophy case, but no broken glass. (00:27:40 - 00:28:45)

Continuity mistake: When Gil shows the band the yearbook up close, Courtney's photo differs from the wideshot of the yearbook. Also, in the close-up there are two guys on her left and right, but in the wideshot the one on the right is now at the top left corner of the page. (00:32:30)

Continuity mistake: When Dizzy is at the mall (right before he goes to preach about sexual abstinence) he is talking through the fish tank. The UFO looking thing is going up and down in the water. If you pay attention to where it is in shot by shot you'll notice that sometimes it's going up and then when its to all the way to the top the next shot it's at the bottom going up again. (00:08:20)

Continuity mistake: The Principal says that the Homecoming Dance is in a month or so, but in the next scene, Diz tells his band friends that they are booked to play the Homecoming Dance in two weeks.

Continuity mistake: When Danielle goes to Gil to tell him she wants to use him, the Red Bull he is drinking with his lunch disappears and when she leaves she turns to look back at Gil for a second and the can is now on the ground. (00:42:25)


Continuity mistake: When Connor rolls Ed Little down the hill in the garbage can, the first shot shows his legs flying out. In the next shots, his legs are completely inside the can. A person rolling like that would have their legs pushed out of the can, not in. (00:56:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dizzy is playing with his band after the first day at Highland, they get finished playing and they are talking about Dizzy's day. You can clearly see the guitar strap is still on Dizzy's shoulder when he is talking. The shot goes from Dizzy to that girl and back to Dizzy and the strap isn't there any more.
