Continuity mistake: When Mr. Hand writes his name on the board to introduce himself to the class, he underlines it. The underline changes a few shots later, and then the lines revert back to the way they were originally. (00:09:30)
Continuity mistake: When Mike is trying to get Mark to ask Stacey out, there is a shot of her behind the counter and Stacey's hair is pulled back on the sides in french braids with ribbons on the ends. Then when Mark approaches Stacey, her hair is pulled back in a clip. The first shot of Stacey with the braid, is actually cut from a scene later in the film, when Mark and Stacey talk at the counter. (00:27:35 - 00:28:20)
Continuity mistake: When Brad admits to his boss he threatened his customer, Brad is shown and there's nothing out the window behind him. Brad is told he's fired (instantly) and then Brad's shown again (only one second later from same exact position) with a potato chip truck sitting still out the same window. There's no way a truck could just appear out of nowhere in only one second-slowing down to a stop maybe, but not sitting still that quickly.
Continuity mistake: After the Last Dance scene, they show a night shot again like in the very beginning of the movie of people coming and going at the mall. If you look closely, you can tell this was shot the same night the beginning scene was filmed. For instance, the guy in the grey blazer and black pants is there again, but what gives it away most is the woman on the far left in the red and white Hawaiian dress, she even is in her same spot as the scene at the start.

Other mistake: Rattner and DiMone are game planning about Rattner's date with Stacy (Leigh). DiMone tells Rattner that all he needs to do to score with Stacy is play songs from side 1 of "Led Zeppelin IV" (Zoso). You then hear the song "Kashmere", which is on the album "Physical Graffiti".
Other mistake: In the scene when Mark Ratner asks for Stacy's phone number, there is a customer paying for a slice of pizza. Stacy tells the customer to pay $1.10. The customer gives her a dollar and change. She then gives him five cents back. The only way this could be right is if the customer gave her $1.15. If he could do that, why not the exact $1.10?
