Continuity mistake: When Chong's father is shouting "we're not gonna have a family brawl," there is a big bottle of juice on the edge of the table by Chong. It cuts away for three seconds and then back to Chong. The bottle of juice has moved to the middle of the table. Also, Chong has poured juice into the mixture. He wouldn't have had time to do all that in just three seconds. (00:01:35)

Revealing mistake: When the cop on the motorcycle pulls Cheech and Chong over, one of the hippie girls is sitting in the front with Chong. Chong orders her to get in the back. She goes back behind the curtains and sticks her head out front. He pushes her back again. In a shot from the back of the van, you see Chong pushing her back, but you also see through the crack in the curtain that it is totally dark in front of the van. Since there is daylight outside, it shouldn't be totally dark. (01:00:25)
