Continuity mistake: In the scene when the guys are painting their first house, you see Stifler talking to Finch, and Stifler is holding a bottle by the cap. In the very next shot, he is holding it by the bottle itself. You never see him change his grip on the bottle. (00:25:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jim meets Michelle at band camp and he guesses that a bear came, when she is saying "It's like you can read my mind," there is a side shot of her, and you can see that the hair down her right side is one big group followed by a few obvious strands just in front. When the shot changes back to a front view of Michelle there are no extra strands visible. (00:27:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jim, Oz and Finch are sitting in front of Dog Years after the call from Nadia, you can see some people in the back. When Kevin shows up the people disappear. The camera moves away for a moment and after it comes back, the people have reappeared. (00:21:35)

Factual error: Jim looks at a postcard sent to him from Nadia and it's addressed to 7 Beach Way, Grand Harbor, MI 49456. There is no Grand Harbor in Michigan. 49456 is a real ZIP (postal) code for Spring Lake, Michigan. (01:00:40)

Factual error: The movie is supposed to take place in Michigan, but you can often see the southern CA mountains in the background in the beach scenes. There are no mountains in Michigan that look like those.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jim makes a fool of himself by trying to play the trombone, he yells into the microphone and turns to Michelle ( who is sitting towards the left of the row of seats). He asks something like, "What should I do?" He then turns around and the camera cuts to a different angle. Now, he is standing in front of a girls that is two seats down from Michelle. (00:32:40)

Continuity mistake: When Jim's dad mentions the webcam thing from the PTA meeting, he turns his head away from Jim. In the next shot, his head is suddenly facing Jim. (00:06:40)

Casual Person

Factual error: The end credits to the movie, which features the Harvey Danger song "Flagpole Sitta" (1997), incorrectly credits it as "I'm Not Sick But I'm Not Well" by LIT. No such song exists, nor have LIT or any other group ever officially recorded covers of "Flagpole Sitta."

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Please indicate which version you saw this on (and possible screenshot). All the versions I've seen, including IMDB, don't even list this song (or it's incorrect title) in the credits. LIT is only credited for 2 songs; "Last Time Again" and "Place in the Sun" for "American Pie 2." The song "Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger does appear in the first "American Pie" film, however the credits I've seen, including IMDB, gives the correct title and correct performed by credit.


Factual error: The movie takes place in Michigan, however when the boys first arrive in town, a sign reading "United States Post Office Seal Beach, California 90740" can be seen in the background. (00:21:55)

[Both sets of parents have walked in on Jim and Natalie having sex.]
Jim's Dad: [to Natalie's Dad.] Hi, I'm Jim's Dad. You must be the parents of this young lady. I didn't get your daughter's name, but I'm pretty sure my son did.

Question: When Kevin admits to having slept with no one at college,considering what Jess tells Vicky that if he said he slept with 3 he more likely slept with 1 or none will it be true what Stifler said about Vicky that if she said 1 it more likely to be 3?


Chosen answer: Yes. That's the point of the theory. Men multiply the number of women they've had sex with by 3, women divide the number by 3.
