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.

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 Combat 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: In the scene where Seth Rogan says, "Is that the Six Million Dollar Man's boss?" and points to the Oscar Goldman doll, the doll in blue to the right of it doesn't have a hat on. In the scenes immediately before and after, it does.

Add time

Continuity mistake: There is a shot of Trish's hand on Andy's shoulder and her other one in her lap when they are talking about selling his action figures on eBay. The camera switches to an over-the-shoulder shot of her and both hands are in her lap. The view switches instantly, so there's no time for her to move her hand.

Continuity mistake: When Jay, Cal and Andy are talking about the date with Trish, Cal and Jay's arms move between shots without enough time for them to have done it naturally. Best example is after the line "She's really sweet," Jay's arms go from crossed to at his sides.

Other mistake: When Andy first meets Trish, they are looking at a display of DVD players and VCRs. She points to a DVD player and says "This one looks pretty good." Andy replies, "You don't want that VCR." Although a display card has been deliberately placed in front of it to mask what it really is, the VCR appears to really be a DVD player.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Andy is riding with the drunk girl, she pulls up to her destination and smashes into a Lincoln, sending it perpendicular to the curb. The shot changes and the angle of the Lincoln is far less and there is less visible damage.

Quotes

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!"

Trivia

For Andy to get rid of the Teen Wolf look, actor Steve Carell's chest hair is really waxed by an actress, who is a non-professional waxer. Because there would only be one take of this disturbingly amusing scene, they set up five cameras - one on his 'friends', one over Andy, one on the waxer, one for wide shots, and one for close-ups of his chest. This scene was not scripted, so when the waxer laughs and Andy's friends are totally cracking up it was for real. Though it was strongly suggested to Steve to first trim his chest hair or to take a pain reliever before the taping, he refused, wanting to have the full cringe-effect caught on tape. In one close-up a bit of blood is actually seen bleeding up to the surface - it is not CGI. It took about seven weeks for his hair to grow back, much to chagrin of his wife, who wasn't crazy about his 'chest smiley'.
