Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

Continuity mistake: When the six main characters are watching the movie on how to play dodgeball, a young Patches messes the little boy's hair, leaving it sticking up in the back and mildly flat in the front. In the very next shot, the little boy's hair is neat and all flat. (00:23:50)

Continuity mistake: During the tournament when it's just Gordon versus the entire other team, the background advertisements change multiple times. The problem is, they appear to be hung there, not electronic.

Plot hole: Peter took the $100,000 bribe White gave him and turned it into $5,000,000 by betting on his team. He did this, so he could buy enough shares of Global Gym stock and take over the company, and in the process kick out White as the CEO. The problem is, Global Gym is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and 5 million wouldn't be near enough to gain control of the company.

Suggested correction: Where did you get the figure of hundreds of million? Earlier in the film White said Global Gym was worth $4 million.


Companies must meet shareholder requirements and have $60 million IPO market value or $100 million market value for public shares.

Then a character mistake should be made to reflect that.


Peter La Fleur: Don't worry so much about this Amber situation. It'll all work itself out in the end.
Justin: Thanks, Pete.
Peter La Fleur: You'll laugh at this one day. I'm laughing already.
