Visible crew/equipment: In the final sex scene, a crew member's foot is momentarily seen on the upper right side of the screen.

Continuity mistake: When Andy and his friends are on the loading dock smashing the bulbs, there is a white mark from a smashed bulb on the dock next to Cal. But in the next shot the mark has vanished, and Cal smashes another bulb in the exact same place, producing the white mark again. (00:30:45)


Continuity mistake: When Andy and David interrupt Haziz's smoke break, Haziz opens the back door to the store, enters, and the door begins to close behind him. In the following shot, the door is still closing, but is open a little wider than a moment before. (00:18:00)

Factual error: When Cal and Dave are playing videogames and coming up with different ways to tell whether or not they're each gay, Cal is using a Nintendo 64 controller. The version of Mortal Kombat that they're playing could only be for Playstation 2, Nintendo Gamecube, or Xbox.


Continuity mistake: During the scene where Beth is in the bathtub, all of Andy's shots have Beth's foot in the lower right hand corner, even though she only has her leg up for portions of the scene. Eg: when Beth puts her "friend" in the water, both her legs are under; we cut to Andy and the foot is in the shot, and then we cut to Beth and both her legs are still under.

Continuity mistake: During the "Aquarius" montage at the end of the film, Andy's "man-o-lantern" chest-wax job is visible in one cut (with the hair just starting to grow back), then completely gone in the next. Since the bedroom scenes in the song are meant to be from the same night, there's no way that his chest could fill in so evenly so quickly.

Continuity mistake: Before and after the dream sequence where he kicks the girl and gives her a bloody nose, the comforter he wakes up with is completely different from the one he went to sleep with, which matched his pillow exactly. When he wakes up, nothing matches the pillow.

Continuity mistake: When Andy hits the pothole and flips over his handle bars, it cuts to the shot after he flips and he is lying on the ground with the back gone, yet it should have landed at his legs from the way they went down.

Continuity mistake: When they are playing poker Andy collects the chips then, Mooj calls him a ringer and leaves, the chips are still in the pot, in the next shot they are gone.

Continuity mistake: Right as the drunk girl is about to puke on Andy, you see her facing forward, with her mouth opened, gagging. Then, in the next shot her mouth is suddenly closed and her head has started turning towards Andy.

Andy: I dated this girl for a while... She was really a... Nasty freak. She just loved to... Get down with... Sex all the time. It was like... Anytime of day... She was like, "Yeah, let's go! I'm so nasty! And I'd be nailing her and she'd be like, "Oh, you're nailing me! Cool!"

Question: Does anybody know what game the two guys are playing in Andy's apartment, the part where they are saying "you know how i know your gay?" Graphics-wise it looks like X-box, but they are holding N64 trident style pads.

Answer: The video game being played is Mortal Kombat: Deception. It is available for PS2, Gamecube, and XBOX. Based on the controller, I would say they are playing the Nintendo Gamecube version.
