Continuity mistake: When The Chosen One is fighting with the cow and grabs its udder to hit it with his finger, he is first shown hitting the upper part of the udder, but when the camera switches angles, he's hitting the lower part of the udder.

Revealing mistake: When the Chosen One is fighting Betty in the river, Betty turns around and hits the Chosen One with his claw, sending him flying. In his flight, you can see the Chosen One's face is not a white man, but an oriental man. They have forgotten to paste Steve Oedekerk's face over the original character from the original film.

Continuity mistake: Various times in the movie when it shows the Crane school from a distance, the bush in front constantly changes sides and positions on the screen.

Revealing mistake: When Chosen One is fighting the masked attacker (who later turns put to be Betty) he claws out their eyes and starts screaming and then his vein in his neck bursts. When this happens though you can see a patch that is bigger than the skin on his neck and it wrinkles it out, revealing to be the blood patch. (00:14:55)

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie when The Chosen One is fighting Betty he gets punched in the face and hits the ground on his back. Look when he hits the ground you can see a whole section of the ground wiggle. It is definitely a cusion to break his fall.


Continuity mistake: When Chosen One is going to fight Betty in the lake when he is swinging his chain, Chosen One is stopped by a man who turns out to be Ling's father. In Steve Oederkerk's closeups, the sky is a light blue with some clouds, but in the long shot with Chosen and Ling's dad, the sky is dark with few clouds. (00:36:35)

Continuity mistake: When the Chosen One wakes up in the scene where he meets Whoa, his hat is in front of him and about two inches to the left of him. But the next shot of him stretching and waking up his hat is way farther away, so either he, or his hat moved. (00:28:10)


Betty: Go get some snacks. Perhaps a carbonated soda.
Ling: I hope they have Icees.
The Chosen One: I've chosen the large tub.
Wimp Lo: My nipples look like milk duds.
Master Tang: I've got some yellow liquid for your popcorn. And it's non-dairy.
