Factual error: In the montage sequence showing Drew Barrymore hanging out with the math club, they have a Pi poster with 3.1457869986. Only the first 3 digits are actually correct. (Pi = 3.1415926535897...) (00:25:20)

Continuity mistake: After George has put the wings on Josie's lapel, he waves his hand in front of the pin to make sure it works.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Aldys and Josie drive by The Court, Guy comes up and makes fun of Aldys. Watch each shot angle in that scene.

You see this couple a bunch of times during the movie. (00:20:20 - 00:22:00)

Continuity mistake: During the sex talk with the kids are putting the condoms on the bananas, watch the curves of Josie and the blonde headed girl's bananas. They switch throughout the different scenes. (00:58:15)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the first board meeting is taking place, Anita has on dark lipstick, which you can see while she is licking the pencil.

When the camera switches to behind the gym teachers head, Josie's hands aren't on the gym teacher's shoulders. When the camera goes back to behind Josie's back, her hands are back on the gym teacher's shoulders again. This happens several more times throughout the movie. (00:21:30)

Continuity mistake: In the sex talk class, you can see when Anita grabs the banana off the desk there's only about four bananas on the desk. In the next scene you can see there are about a dozen bananas all piled up.

Ben's Mom

Other mistake: In the scene where the Denominators are versing the other school in a calculus competition you see everyone sitting at the table but when Josie wins she looks up and all of the team are around her chair. They couldn't have gotten up that fast.

When she is talking about how she gets to go back to high school, the strap of her handbag is across her chest, then the camera shoots to Rob and you can see Josie still in the camera's view and she doesn't move. But when they shoot back to Josie the strap of her back has moved. (00:11:20)

Continuity mistake: In the movie there is a scene where Drew Barrymore is remembering high school. It shows a boy walking towards her holding a Pepsi One can. Pepsi One was invented in the late nineties and would not have been around during the time this scene was supposed to have taken place. (00:13:20)

Revealing mistake: After Josie eats the chocolate cake, she starts dancing wildly on stage and does the splits. You can tell it's a stunt double that does the splits because the blond hair is nowhere near as curly.

Question: Was Guy in on the cruel revenge prank to put dog food on Aldys, or did he just want to dance with her, and didn't know anything about it?

Answer: Over the course of the evening, Guy learns that being popular isn't the most important thing in the world and wanted to make peace with Aldys. I think he was genuinely being a nice guy and wasn't in on the prank.
