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 Mike walks into Health class, Mrs. Dell's lectern and stool (upon which the basket of condoms and another basket sit) stand directly in front of the chalkboard, but funny how they are both conveniently gone when Mike knocks Stan to the floor, in front of that chalkboard. (00:44:45 - 00:47:25)

Factual error: At the start in 1989, when Mike is dancing with the cheerleaders and also just before he goes after Scarlet, in close-ups of the crowd cheering there is a man (with a white baseball cap) wearing a Paramore t-shirt. However, Paramore (a Grammy-nominated American pop rock band) formed in 2004. The style of t-shirt he is wearing is actually one of the officially licensed Paramore merchandise. (00:02:45)

Mike O' Donnell: When you're young everything feels like the end of the world. But it's not; it's just the beginning. You might have to meet a few more jerks, but one day you're gonna meet a boy who treats you the way you deserve to be treated. Like the sun rises and sets with you.

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

Question: If Mike's ex-wife (Scarlet) recognizes him from when they were teenagers, wouldn't the coach remember him too? He was the star player.

Answer: I've not seen the movie, but an ex-wife would be closer to her ex-husband than a coach to his old student, no matter how good.


Answer: It's also possible that the coach might have noticed a resemblance, but he would have simply written it off as an odd coincidence, much like Scarlet did earlier in the film.
