Van Wilder

Factual error: After Van unplugs the power from the phone, it rings one more time, remember, it's a cordless phone. (01:10:05)

Sol Parker

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie Van tells the viewers that it is the beginning of spring semester at Coolidge College and it is obvious that the college is somewhere up north near Massachusetts because in the scene where Van is giving the basketball team a pep talk one of the players asks Van if he invited the girls from Mount Holyoke (which is in Massachusetts)to their party. Yet throughout the entire movie everyone is dressed in shorts and tank tops like its summertime outside when in reality January up north near Massachusetts is FREEZING...

Factual error: In the scene where Van is in the court type room deciding if he can't stay, he drops outside the window and some photographers take pictures. They all use flash, which is ridiculous because the flash would have reflected off the glass and into the picture.

Factual error: When Gwen calls Van, he simply unplugs the phone and we hear the dial tone. The phone would continue to ring on Gwen's end, not disconnect.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Van and his friends are riding in Van's golf cart, just after Van has sex with the secretary, the guy in the back is seen being licked on the face by the bulldog. When the camera cuts to Van he's not being licked. When the camera cuts to Van's assistant he's being licked again. This happens over and over. (00:15:53)
