Revealing mistake: When Joe is strapped to the atom bomb he orders a girl to show him her boobies. When she takes her top off, you see a back shot of her (so you can't see her boobs) but her body is transparent and you can see Joe's arm through her body. Obviously, the girl was superimposed onto the shot. (00:34:40)
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Joe talks to the mean parking guy and then speeds away spinning his tyres, If you look at the pavement there is already a mark where the car had burned the tyres. The shot had been tried once before, leaving almost identical marks from his tyres.
Revealing mistake: When Joe is on the bridge and about to jump, the cop ropes him with a bungee cord. It's a single-stranded cord with a loop like a lasso. When Joe falls, however, it is a multi-stranded bungee cord with a proper ankle wrap. Obviously, it wouldn't be safe if the stunt man jumped with just a lasso, but it's obvious that it's two totally different ropes.
Continuity mistake: In the scene just after Joe finds his parents, when they are sitting in their trailer talking, his parents have a stuffed clown between them. Just before Joe asks them if there ever was a time when they'd be staring at the moon, the clown is slumped forward with its face not visible. In the next shot, when his mom starts her sales pitch about having clowns for sale, the clown is now standing upright between them.
Joe Dirt: So, you're gonna tell me, that you don't have no black cats, no Roman candles, or screamin' mimis?
Kicking Wing: No.
Joe Dirt: Oh come on man. You don't got no lady fingers, buzz bottles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zip-a-dee-do-dahs, crap flappers?
Kicking Wing: No, I don't.
Joe Dirt: You're gonna stand there, owning a firework stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, honker lighters, huskers dus, husker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy dazers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whisking kitty chaser?
