Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie he is not taken onto the hockey team. After he is hustling at the driving range he goes to toughen up. As he is toughening up, Chubbs unplugs the machine. The kid tries it, but he never plugged it back in and the machine still manages to work.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Happy is talking to Chubbs in the parking lot, when Happy hits Chubbs' hand off, you can see that Chubbs is throwing his hand rather than getting it hit off by Happy's hockey stick. You may have to watch in slow motion.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Happy first meets Chubbs, Happy backs his car into a couple of trash cans after Chubbs mentions big bucks. When Happy backs into the trash cans and stops he leans out the open window with his elbow over the side; you can see this through the back window. But when it shows a close up of Happy in the next shot, he's sitting calmly in the car with both arms in his lap.

Continuity mistake: During the segment where the V.W. bug hits the media tower there are a few inconsistencies. First off when the bug hits the tower the pole wraps around the front end staying intact. In the next shot it shows the pole is broken and sitting on the hood. Then there's a shot where it shows a guy laying on the ground and the bug in the background. Now the bug has backed up about 4 feet and the pole is now not broken and only bent.

Continuity mistake: When the V.W. bug hits the media tower the front area of the car is already charred before it catches fire.

Plot hole: In the final tournament when Happy is stuck in the rough, he swings five times. Assuming he hit his drive into the rough and hit an AMAZING shot from the edge of the water into the hole, he still could do no better than a seven on the hole. Happy only lost one stroke on the hole.

Continuity mistake: The point in the movie when Shooter is mad about the beach ball being thrown on the green, watch his ball. It changes its position on the green from one view to another.
