Van Wilder

Revealing mistake: After Milty jumps off the diving platform, an obvious stunt double, considerably thinner than Milty, completes the dive.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene, at Van Wilder's party, Gwen is talking to Van Wilder and her bathing suit strap is on her left shoulder. When the shot changes, it has disappeared from her shoulder and is on her back. She wouldn't have moved it as her hands don't move in the scene.

Trivia: The titular character of the movie is based on comedian Bert Kreischer, specifically a Rolling Stone article written about him when he was in his sixth year at FSU and told the story of "the top party guy at the top party school." The writeup eventually become a movie concept that Oliver Stone acquired the rights to, but the deal fell through and the writers sold it to National Lampoon. Kreischer himself was not involved in the movie, however.
