17 Again

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.

Continuity mistake: In the ice cream shop, when Mike picks up the unplugged jack for Maggie's earbuds, he holds the jack pointed up with its cord grasped within his closed palm, but next shot the cord is dangling free under the unplugged jack. (00:13:05)

Continuity mistake: When Mike swings his lightsabre and causes Ned to slam backwards onto the floor, Ned drops his own lightsabre onto the floor beside him, with its red glow pointing toward the front door.

Continuity mistake: When Mike grabs a lightsabre and shouts, "Ned, Ned, Ned, I'm telling you...stop it!...Now!" his arms are extended out with the lightsabre held aloft, and his tie hangs properly. It cuts to Ned turning on his lightsabre's glow effect, with Mike and his raised lightsabre in the foreground. In the next shot, as Mike's arms are still extended out, his tie is now dangling over his right arm. (00:19:35)

Continuity mistake: When Ned is attacking Mike with the sword and then skewers his suit jacket, as soon as Mike fumbles out of the jacket both of his long shirt sleeves (one of the cuffs hangs out of the jacket sleeve) are suddenly folded up on his forearms, between shots. Additionally, the dangling left shirt sleeve cuff repeatedly moves in and out of the suit sleeve, and even after the jacket is discarded the cuff folds up, down, back up and so on. (00:19:20)

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.

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: 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)

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: When Mike returns to Hayden searching for the 'janitor', as he is speaking to the real janitor saying, "There's an older guy with white hair...," Mike's black sunglasses are in his left hand, but when it cuts back to the close-up it's back in his right hand. (00:22:55)

Continuity mistake: After Ned shows up for the '89 team photo, in the shot facing the team when he and Mike are walking over to their places, players 23 and 24 are kneeling as Mike passes them. In the next shot facing the photographer, those two teammates are walking behind Mike just before kneeling. Coach Murphy also moves from beside the last teammate to behind and has thrown the ball to Mike, between the shots as well. (00:01:50)

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.

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)

Continuity mistake: During Ned's attack on Mike, Ned pulls the rug out from under his friend, after which the rug lies bunched up on the floor near the front door. As the scene plays out the rug's position changes between shots, particularly after Ned kicks Mike in the groin when Mike falls on his back with the rug under him. (00:20:40)

Continuity mistake: When Ned falls over the upstairs banister in his house, Mike leaps over and lands on the rug beside Ned's head. After Mike says, "I feel great," his feet are on the patterned rug, but next shot he is standing farther back - note the rug's pattern (just before Ned pulls it out from under him). (00:19:05)
