Continuity mistake: During the jail breakout, when Jake tries to open the ORV's door, in the shot facing Francis he is holding the gun in his left hand as he tries to open the door for his brother with his right hand. In the next shot facing Jake just before shouts, "I don't have the handle, open the lock!" Francis's gloved left hand is empty, and next shot, the gun can be seen in his right hand.

Continuity mistake: After Chunk does the 'Truffle Shuffle' and Mikey releases the bowling ball, we see the horizontal piece of wood that is painted red and attached to the porch rail, from which the silver bucket is lowered. It's seen in many shots. What's funny is that in the first shot of the Walsh's house, after the Fratellis drive past at the bottom of the hill, that piece of wood is white, because it hasn't been painted red yet by the crew.

Continuity mistake: When Data's 'bully blinders' are on, just as the bulbs dim, in the close-up Data's cartridge holder hangs over his right shoulder to his left hip instead of the opposite way, as seen in the previous and following shots. Interestingly, this is not due to a flipped shot.

Continuity mistake: We see Mouth climb down into the fireplace passage after Brand and Andy. We then see a close-up of Stef's pink high-tops descend, being helped by Mouth (we see his rain slicker), who's already down there with Brand and Andy, who are visible in the background. It cuts to a close-up of Stef, with Data's white Nike high-tops climbing down after her. But the next close-up is of Mouth's feet (black Nikes) just coming down as Brand grabs his ankle and says, "Come on!" Impossible since Mouth was already down there.

Continuity mistake: Chunk is tied to a chair when Jake and Francis leave him in the room with Sloth. When Chunk introduces himself to Sloth, the rope around Chunk's right shoulder has gone up, off the chair, but then manages to lower itself again, back over the chair in following shots.

Continuity mistake: At the end, when the Fratellis show up on the beach, Chunk and the others run over to Sloth to protect him and Chunk stands on a large boulder. The ground is rocky and the sand is brownish. When Chunk tells Sloth that he'll live with him, in the overhead close-up Chunk is now shorter than Sloth and the ground is pristine off-white sand.
