Visible crew/equipment: When the sheriff's daughter, Stacie, visits Pootie at the farm, she jumps and pushes him through a window. In the next shot you see him falling into the house, and you can clearly see a pad on his back.
Factual error: When Pootie is leaving Biggie Shorty's house, he says he is going away. Biggie Shorty asks where, to which Pootie replies he doesn't know. Biggie Shorty says that she has a home in the country and Pootie can stay there. (She even says South Carolina I think). Later in the movie after Pootie has gone to the country home, in the scene where the Sheriff introduces Pootie to his daughter, you can clearly see a NJ Turnpike sticker in the store window behind the Sheriff. The NJ Turnpike does not run through South Carolina, it is in New Jersey.
Continuity mistake: When the man in the blue shirt attempts to rob Pootie Tang, after losing his knife, he fires a gun at Pootie Tang. Pootie Tang deflects the shots with his belt, but only one of the bullets hits the robber. When we get a close up of the robber on the ground, he has about three or four bullet holes in his shirt and there isn't any blood on him.
Revealing mistake: In the intro (or one of the intros, rather), they narrate Pootie Tang's origin. A fake newspaper called "New York Pone" is shown, with the front page dedicated to baby Pootie and his invention of a new language. All fun and everything, but the prop is sloppy; you can read below the name of this fake 70s newspaper the URL of the New York Post' s website and the date in April 2001. (00:08:35)
