Factual error: After Jimmy drops Cheddar off at the hospital after he shoots himself, Jimmy says that he hit an artery but he'll be all right. The artery would have been his femoral artery, and he would have bled to death in less than a minute.

Suggested correction: There are several arteries in the thigh which branch off the femoral artery. Cheddar could have easily hit one of those and not bled to death. It still would cause significant blood loss and require hospitalization but would not be nearly as deadly as striking the femoral artery itself.

Continuity mistake: When Rabbit and his mom's boyfriend were kicking each other's ass inside the Smith's trailer, Rabbit pushes or punches the boyfriend from the kitchen to the living room, breaking a small wooden post in a quick shot. A few shots later, when Rabbit returns to the trailer, the wooden post is intact. There was no time to fix it.

Jimmy Smith Jr: You ever wondered at what point you gotta just say "f**k it, man." You ever wondered at what point you gotta stop livin' up here, and start livin' down here?
