Corrected entry: Right at the end of the movie, when Jim is dancing to Nadia we can see Jim's father appearing behind him, but a few seconds later there is an outside shot of the room where his hand is lying on the door frame.
Corrected entry: During the Lacrosse game when you see Oz score the goal, there is an illegal hit, Oz has the ball and a player from his team hits another player on the opposite team, that is an illegal hit and the goal would not count.
Corrected entry: When Nadia is in the bedroom, and Jim is using the camera to webcast her, the angle we see on his friend's computer is totally different to that on another computer we are shown. (00:42:48)
Corrected entry: In the beginning, Oz is in the car with the college girl, he tries to 'seduce' her, then she says: 'That's pathetic'. Her mouth is not moving at all. (00:10:24)
Corrected entry: When Jim is 'experimenting' with the pie, his dad walks in and immediately exclaims in horror. However, Jim is standing with his back to the door, with nothing visibly amiss.
Corrected entry: When Jim's setting up his computer to take a photo of himself for the dating site, we see shots of him trying to look good for the camera. However, in the supposedly live shots of him gurning at the camera on the monitor the blinds are open, whereas in the wider shots of him in the room they're well and truly shut - the webcam footage was obviously taped. (00:19:55)
Corrected entry: When Jim is setting up his computer camera and adjusting and re-adjusting it so it centers around the bed area, his dad brings Nadia in the room and Jim excitedly jumps up and bumps the desk. You can see the camera on top of the computer move substantially out of position. There is no way anyone would have seen anything but the wall.
Corrected entry: In the final lacrosse game when Oz scores, it looks like when he shoots, it doesn't actually go in the net, but hits the bar instead. (01:03:41)
Corrected entry: When Jim's friends are watching him dancing for Nadia on the webcam, they can hear the dancing music Nadia has playing, which is strange, because Jim hasn't set up a microphone.
Corrected entry: The first time Nadia is mentioned, she is referred to as a Czechosolvakian exchange student. Later in the movie, when Kevin and Finch are waiting for Jim in Kevin's room (to see Nadia on the Net), there is a sticker on the mirror that says Class of 1999. The problem is, Czechoslovakia didn't exist in 1999. It split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993.
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.]. (00:13:20)
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.
