Continuity mistake: Before Scarlet's date arrives, during the dance when Mike spins her in his arms, in a few shots Scarlet's hands are atop one another on Mike's shoulder and her bracelet is at her wrist, but in-between those shots in one shot her hands are apart gripping his shoulder and her bracelet is up on her forearm.

Continuity mistake: When Alex walks in on Mike dancing with Scarlet, in the background Alex's arm is out as he turns off the stereo with the remote and then puts his hands in his back pockets in close-up. Then two shots later, Alex's hand with the remote once again points to the stereo and then puts his hands by his back pockets. (00:56:55)

Continuity mistake: During Ned and Principal Masterson's conversation at the restaurant, after Ned tells her, "I'm the kind of guy who spends ten grand on Gandalf the Grey's quarterstaff from The Two Towers," Principal Masterson's hands are clasped on the table in front of her, but in the next shot she is holding the menu up in front her. Next shot the menu is on the table, but then up in her hands once again. (01:12:05)

Continuity mistake: In the shot just after "Mark" tells Scarlet about Alex and the new girlfriend, Nicole (at the victory party), we see Jane's car driving down the block (towards the camera) headed to Ned's home and there are multiple black tire tracks (burned rubber) on the road at the intersection. After a close-up of Jane and Ned in the car discussing 'Halo', it cuts back to the intersection as the teenagers cut them off, and the tire tracks are gone. (01:16:50)

Continuity mistake: Just after "Mark" tells Scarlet about Alex's new girlfriend at the victory party, there's a shot of Jane's blue car (headed to Ned's home) as it nears the intersection, which is a short distance away. It cuts to an interior shot of Jane and Ned in the car discussing 'Halo', and through Jane's open window we see the distance she is driving and the side street view. It then cuts back to the shot of them nearing the intersection and two problems arise: one, in the close-up they drive a far greater distance than they do between the exterior shots, and two, the view outside Jane's window differs as well. (01:16:50)

Continuity mistake: When Principal Masterson and Ned are driving to Ned's house, just as they are driving behind the teenagers, in the interior shot from the POV of the back seat the rearview mirror is gone from the windshield, yet it is visible in the previous and following shots. (01:17:05)

Trivia: The codename for this film when shipped to theatres was "Rewind." Kinda fitting if you ask me.
