Continuity mistake: During Mike's slapfest, given by Scarlet, Maggie and her three friends, when the blonde slaps him she turns toward her left to walk away, but in the next shot facing Mike she turns to her right to walk away. Maggie did the same thing, but the opposite way. (01:19:10)

Continuity mistake: The morning after Mike's party at Ned's house, when Ned finishes vacuuming the rug in the overhead shot the wood floor immediately surrounding the rug is clean, but in the next shot there is a mess right beside the rug, which would have been visible in the previous shot had it been there.

Continuity mistake: When the "Nedmobile" pulls out of the driveway to head to the courthouse, we see Glenn, the crossing guard, at the corner and the entire sidewalk to the right, from the driveway on down. When Ned stops, in the shot from behind Glenn there are two trees at the curb, which were not there in the previous shot. (Visible on DVD widescreen.) (01:21:15)

Continuity mistake: When Ned and Mike stop for the "glorified midget wrangler", Glenn's right hand goes to his pants' pocket in the shot facing the Lamborghini, but next shot his right arm is extended for the crossing children. The proximity and position of the kids to one another also changes abruptly between shots. (01:21:25)

Continuity mistake: In the courtroom, when Mike finishes "reading" the letter to Scarlet he drops it on the case file box, with its black extendable handle retracted below the bar (wood rail), but when Scarlett picks up the paper the extendable handle is pulled up well above the bar. (Visible on DVD fullscreen.) (01:25:50)

Continuity mistake: At court, after "Mark" reads the supposed letter from Mike, he drops the paper onto the box. When Scarlet picks it up and sees that it is merely directions to the courthouse, its writing differs. The direction of the folds in the paper also change from when Scarlet picks it up and the next close-up. (01:25:50)

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Mike is warming up in the gym, just as Coach Murphy says, "Hey, Gold," as he's walking in there is one basketball on the top tier of the rack (the last ball Mike takes is from the bottom tier), but when Coach Murphy says, "Got a little inside info...," the top tier is empty. (01:28:05)

Continuity mistake: Before the start of the last basketball game, when Ned (wearing a "cloak of invisibility") calls out to Jane, the people surrounding the seated principal change depending on the angle of the shot. For example, in the shot facing Jane there is guy in a green hoodie, wearing a bandana on his head, that disappears in the side shot. (01:29:35)

Visible crew/equipment: Before the start of the last basketball game, when Ned calls out, "Jane!" for the third time in the shot facing him as he tries to pass someone, the actors' green T-mark and three other tape marks - one yellow and two red - are visible on the floor ahead of Ned. (Visible on DVD fullscreen.) (01:29:40)

Continuity mistake: When Maggie is crying about being dumped, her makeup changes from the time Mike first came by her, where it was purple, to the end where it is black.

Factual error: After Mike's dance routine with the cheerleaders, his coach says, "Hey Vanilla Ice, get over here." But Vanilla Ice wasn't a star until 1990, when "Ice Ice Baby" was released. No one would have heard of him in 1989.

Continuity mistake: When Ned calls off the Hummer it is immediately in the street behind the Principal, but was completely absent in every shot before that as you can see the street behind her it wasn't there.

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