Continuity mistake: When Dean Pritchard is telling the frat guys that they failed, he flips up the first page on his clipboard. While the paper is flipped up, we can see that there is a line drawn through Blue's name. When he flips the paper back down, Blue's name is no longer crossed out.

Continuity mistake: When Will Ferrell is in the living room for the first time, there are two hockey sticks leaning there.

Continuity mistake: After Will Ferrell burns himself jumping through the fire hoop as the mascot, he is seen with a burnt red upper body. In the floor exercise shot and after, there is no redness on his shoulders. (01:18:25 - 01:19:20)

Continuity mistake: When Frank falls over the table after shooting himself with the dart gun, there is a straw hat on the chair. The hat sticks under his right arm. But in the next shot, it is away from his arm and visible in front of the camera. (00:53:10)

Continuity mistake: When Frank is seen streaking down the street, there is a brunette in the back of his wife's vehicle and she is wearing a hat, but in the end of the scene after Frank has sat beside her the hat disappears between cuts. (00:23:25)

Continuity mistake: When Frank and the Dean of the university start rolling down the classroom stairs, they start off falling away from each other and then they are seen rolling down the stairs on top of each other.


Continuity mistake: When Mitch's real estate buddy says that he knows about him and the boss's daughter, Mitch slaps him and points his right finger at him. In the next shot, it's his left finger that's pointing. (00:40:50)

Continuity mistake: When Mitch is finished photocopying posters, he places the original white one on the bottom of the pile. In the next shot, it is on the top.

Continuity mistake: At the end when Luke Wilson is moving out, there is a couch behind him in the U-Haul. It has boxes and a helmet on it. In the next shot, the couch has nothing on it.

Continuity mistake: The door to Will Ferrell's Firebird is closed in a tight shot when his wife is talking to him. When they cut to a wider shot, the door is open.

Continuity mistake: When the frat throws Blue a KY wrestling match, they have several matches before it's Blue's turn. However, when they show Blue and the two girls in the kiddie pool, the pool looks like it has never been used - there is no KY on the sides. There is no way they could've cleaned it all up, and I doubt they had a separate pool lying around just for him.

Barry, Oral Sex Instructor: The secret to a good BJ is focus. I don't care if we're talking about your husband of 10 years or just some hot sailor you met at TJI Fridays a couple of months ago who never did call me back but did leave me with a little something called herpes... which I then gave to the dog. But that's neither here nor there. Grab your vegetables.



When Mitch, Frank, and Beanie decide that they are going to have a party they say the party is on a Friday night. When they show the outside of Mitch's house you see the sign for the party and it says the party is on Thursday at 9:00. Then when Frank talks to the guys with the beer bong he says that tomorrow he has a nice Saturday planned. If the sign is right then he would have a pretty nice Friday.



The man that shows up at the door to ask about the orgy, is the director of the movie: Todd Phillips.
