Continuity mistake: After the Mystery Men accidentally kill Captain Amazing, they make a quick exit, and The Blue Raja drops a fork while leaving. When we see Casanova hold up that fork to the machine we notice that the fork catches the light very well, as if it were new. Which means it wasn't the same fork, as the one that Blue Raja dropped wasn't that well polished to begin with.

Continuity mistake: The Shoveler says, "Nothing I couldn't move around" and puts out his thumb and pinky. Then cuts to a downward shot of the table and the three touch index fingers and pinkies. (00:34:59)

Continuity mistake: The Shoveler uses his hard hat as a fulcrum to shoot Roy up onto the roof of the car. When he kicks the shovel up a second later, he suddenly has the hat on.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When the Bowler first introduces her ball, the material is mostly clear. When it's sitting on the table, the material is a slightly opaque pink.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: As the Spleen and Invisible Boy stand silhouetted in front of the moon, their motions are easy to tell as the film being run forward and backwards.

Movie Nut

The Shoveller: God's given me a gift. I shovel well. I shovel very well.

Trivia: At the end when the reporter asks for the name of the group, Kel Mitchell says the Super Dudes. This was one of the skits he used to make many appearances in on a show called All That on Nickelodeon.

Question: Just interested, but when the Mystery Men are rescuing Captain Amazing, how did Amazing know the sequence for the release mechanism and where it was if he was unconscious when he was put there?

Chosen answer: In a previous scene with Casanova, Capt. Amazing and he have done this (capture & escape) a lot! So much so that Capt. Amazing would have been in that situation before enough times to already know the sequence code from previous times being captured (and escaping).
