Corrected entry: In the scene where Thurgood, Scarface, and Brian break into the lab to steal the lab they leave their bikes at the foot of the ladder, but when they run out the emergency exit the bikes are no longer there.

Correction: The trio is in the lab long enough that the bikes could have been stolen by another party or the police could have taken them so an escape attempt would be impossible.

Corrected entry: When Thurgood goes to Mary Jane's apartment to deliver the weed he should have realized that it was her apartment since he had been there before after their first date.

Correction: This is explained when the three roommates are talking about springing Kenny from jail. After being rejected once, Scarface suggests again to sell weed to raise money and the voice over says "Marijuana affects the memory." Clearly if Scarface can make that mistake, Thurgood's lapse of memory is not as unbelievable.

Corrected entry: In the beginning when Thurgood is walking from work he has his janitor suit on, but when he enters Bodega's, he's wearing different clothes. When he walks into the apartment building he has his janitor suit on.

Correction: This was an explanation (ie: flashback) of various places to buy weed. He didn't actually leave work and go to this place. This is further verified by the fact that if the beginning scenes were remotely chronological, then why would he have then gone and purchased the expensive top quality stuff from Sampson when he went home?

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie when Dave Chappelle buys weed from the delivery service, the 4 sit down with Billy BoB Thornton and light up, but they had not put the weed in the bong yet, I don't even remember seeing Dave Chappelle even take the weed out of the bag.

Correction: Not only does Chappelle remove the smoke from the bag, he places the entire ammount in the bowl before firing it up.

Corrected entry: After Brian, Thurgood, and Scarface smoke the weed that Thurgood got from work and they float outside, you can see Brian's shirt sticking up where the wires would be to make him "fly."

Correction: They did not use wires, they used a green screen, and all three of them are on a platform. If it looks like his shirt is up like that, it would just be coincidence.

Corrected entry: In the scene where they call Jerry Garcia out on the pouch to help them, Jerry hits Samson on the head with an acoustic guitar and when they show him in the next shot he has an electric guitar.

Correction: Watch closly, it's the same guitar. Furthermore, there is such thing as an electric-acoustic guitar.

Corrected entry: At the beginning, Brian is wearing a striped shirt when they go into the store during Thurgood's memory. When they are leaving the store and Brian runs into the door, his shirt is tie-dyed.

Correction: This was probably intentional. Brian is wearing a tie-dye shirt for the rest of the movie, so when they smoked for the first time that day, the changing shirt was symoblic of who Brian 'was' from then on.

Corrected entry: Whenever any of the characters are smoking the hashish, no smoke ever comes out when they exhale.

Correction: This is not true. In the first part when you see all four of them smoke in a group as adults, the guys that play Thurgood and Kenny both exhale smoke, Thurgood from his nose and Kenny from his mouth.

Corrected entry: When the guys wake up after Kenny goes to jail, Thurgood has spaghetti noodles hanging from his mouth. When he says "did he just move?" and the camera switches to the guy on the couch and then back again, the noodles are gone. (00:13:30)

Correction: It only takes about that long to slurp noodles into your mouth.

Visible crew/equipment: When they give free samples of weed in the club, they run out and they see people floating. You can see a white or silver wire that's making the black guy in a yellow shirt float. (00:32:10)
