Corrected entry: When the Dean informs the fraternity that they did not pass because Blue scored 0% on all the tests, he states that their score drops to a 58%, when earlier, Mitch said they had a score of 84%. Since the fraternity has at least a dozen guys in it, Blue's 0% would not cause such a dramatic decrease.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Mitch and Frank come home to Beenie holding the initial fraternity meeting, Frank is holding a George Foreman grill under his left arm. Towards the end of the scene Mitch says something to Beenie. Frank's arm with the grill in it can be seen. The shot goes to Beenie and then back to Mitch and the grill is then under Frank's right arm, but in the next shot it switches back again to his left.
Corrected entry: When the fat man drops a cinder block on a manhole cover, the cover falls in the hole. This could not happen as manholes and their covers are shaped and sized as they are (circular) so as to make it impossible for the cover to ever fall through the hole.
Corrected entry: The film is set in New York, but the palm trees in the background of many scenes remind us that it was of course filmed in California.
Corrected entry: During the scene where Luke Wilson tells the fraternity that they are subject to a review, Vince Vaughn leaves the restaurant and tells Wilson that he built Speaker City from the ground up and he could barely read. However, at the academics test, Vince Vaughn is able to read a complicated question into the microphone.
Corrected entry: When the pledges are going through the initiation process (the scene where they are throwing the cinder blocks from the roof) the "big kid" throws his on a man hole cover. If cars and big rigs can drive over them i don't see how a 15lb cinder block would do what it did.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the fraternity are dancing in the gym hall, the fat guy moves from one end to another in the same shot.
Corrected entry: When Luke Wilson discovers that the girl he met at his party is his boss's daughter and still in high school, his boss says she'll be graduating in seven months. Assuming that'll be somewhere around June, that would make the current month November. An outside party would be too cold to have at this time of the year in New York, and you'd be able to see everyone's breath because of the low temperature. Also, Beanie's pool would not still be open.
Corrected entry: When the wedding singer starts singing you see a mic stand, but when the scene changes its gone.
Corrected entry: Yeah it made for a better sequence, but considering it is an all male fraternity they are creating, why do they do solely women's gymnastic events? i.e. Frank performs the floor exercise with a ribbon, technically considered rhythmic gymnastics which is a women's event. And the vault is set up for women as the long end of the vault is perpendicular to the runway. For men, the vault has its long side parallel to the run way.
Corrected entry: The party that Beanie throws for Mitch supposedly happens on a Friday night. We know this because they mention it earlier in the film, and also Frank mentions during the party that tomorrow he and his wife have a big Saturday planned at Home Depot and maybe Bed, Bath and Beyond. However, the morning after the party Mitch has to go to work (he's a lawyer), just as his boss and co-workers do. Also, the girl Luke meets at the party has to go to school.
