American Pie mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the bedroom scene the girl is holding a clear cup full of beer. The camera goes off her and when it comes back she is holding a blue cup. The camera goes back off her then on her and the cup is clear again. [This mistake does not appear in the unrated version - the blue cup scenes were shot specifically to secure an R rating from the MPAA because the contents are obscured.].

Continuity mistake: When Stifler's mom seduces Finch, you can clearly see Finch playing with the balls on the pool table. The camera cuts to another shot, and when it's back to Finch, the balls are back in the original place.

Continuity mistake: When Finch is moping through the house, depressed, he goes through a door marked "keep out". The door handle is on the left side, meaning that from inside the room the handle must be on the right. However, when he plays with the pool balls, we can see that the door he must just have come through (there's no other door visible) has the handle on the left.

Continuity mistake: Around the middle of the film, Oz's shirt changes going from the car park to the library, and then back again when he's singing in the classroom.

Continuity mistake: In the final lacrosse game, Oz gets checked hard by an opposing player. But in the next shot with Oz laying on the ground, the opposing player disappears.

Continuity mistake: During the lacrosse game towards the end of the movie Oz scores a goal - in one shot it shows the ball coming to rest in front of the goal. In the next shot you can see the ball hitting the net and coming to rest again.

Continuity mistake: When Nadia is going through Jim's drawer in his bedroom, a tub of Vaseline magically disappears from one shot to the next. In the same scene on top of the drawer a small white box appears at the same time the Vaseline disappears.

Continuity mistake: When Nadia goes to Jim's house, Jim throws all the porn stuff messily into a drawer quickly. A little later, when Nadia opens the drawer, all the stuff has been neatly positioned.

Continuity mistake: In the famous Nadia on the internet segment, there is a quick shot of the computer before Jim starts to get undressed. If you look on the desk next to the keyboard there is a gray t-shirt. It wasn't there when Jim was setting up the camera and Jim hasn't begun to undress yet. Obviously shot after Jim threw the shirt on the Web cam and it slid off.

Continuity mistake: Finch runs into the girl's bathroom when the laxatives affect him. He tries to take out a toilet seat cover, but there are none left. The side shot shows a corner of the box hanging down below the dispenser, whereas when the shot changes to the front, there is no visible corner. It then returns to the side and the visible corner, and back to the front with no corner.

Continuity mistake: The amount of paper Filch has put on the toilet seat increases drastically, instantly.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When Jim's father hands him the magazine "shaved" he changes between holding them at the top and at the bottom.

Continuity mistake: When the boys are sitting in the living room talking about how they have to "do it" before graduation, one of the boys sitting on the couch has his legs crossed, then they uncross, cross,and uncross. They keep changing positions.

Continuity mistake: When Finch is at the party after the prom and he goes in the room with the sign on the door where Stifler's mom is he opens the door out. But at the end of the movie when Stifler is trying to get in the room there is a chair in front of the door and it opens the opposite way.

Continuity mistake: When Stifler and the girl are in the bedroom at his party, the amount of beer in the cup changes frequently. Before he picks it up, it's about 1/2 full, when he picks it up it's about 3/4 full.

Continuity mistake: When Jim adjusts the camera you can see that the camera shows only his bed. Afterward, when Nadia lies, the camera shows half of the room.

Continuity mistake: When the singer is shown at the prom, listen carefully as a slow and romantic ballad is being played. A few seconds later in a quick shot, the drummer is doing crazy and nearly "heavy metal" movements which doesn't make sense with the tempo of the song.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene where the boys are discussing their love lives, watch the man eating a cream roll/hot dog in the background. In one shot he takes a large bite. The camera changes angles to one of the boys and quickly returns to the wider shot. The man is deep in conversation only two seconds after biting down on half a hot dog.

Trivia

A little trivia for the American-Pie-Movies fans: The movie is obviously based in Michigan, as apparent by the dialogue of the characters and the frequent mention and appearance of such schools as the University of Michigan and Michigan State University. What most people don't realize, is that the characters live in a town called "Great Falls", which is based on the writer's hometown, Grand Rapids. Those of us fans who live in Grand Rapids, Michigan have so much fun with these movies because they contain one hidden reference to our town after another. For instance, the kids go to East Great Falls High School. One of the biggest and most preppy schools in the area is East Grand Rapids High. Also, the hotdog shop that the guys frequent, "Yesteryears", is a real place: only we call it "Yesterdog" and it's been a very popular hangout for almost 50 years. In the sequel, the guys go to Grand Harbor, a resort town by the lake. This is a place based on a town on Lake Michigan called Grand Haven. Many of us who live in Grand Rapids actually do this very thing during the summers. There are again, many references to Grand Haven (and Grand Rapids again) in the sequel, but the movie does short the audience on one thing: one of Grand Haven's highlights is a fantastic pier and lighthouse. The lighthouse that Jim and Nadia go to is pathetic in comparison. If you ever have the pleasure of visiting West Michigan, and are so inclined, be sure to watch the movies with a native and then visit the real locations.
