Corrected entry: During the scene where Buddy Love is becoming the Professor and jumps into the sports car (after the club), his foot turns so big its stuck on the accelerator (gas) pedal, we can hear at one stage the car being reved. If he could remove his foot from the accelerator why not just stop.

Correction: The car has a manual gear change (and therefore has a clutch).


Corrected entry: Around halfway through the movie when Sherman gets home from his first date with Carla he puts a microwavable dinner in the microwave but there is a tinfoil top to it. For some reason this doesn't cause any problems.

Correction: It may not be tinfoil. You can get microwavable foil, used underneath microwaveable pizzas, so no reason it couldn't be used in a ready meal too.

Corrected entry: During the second scene at The Scream, after Buddy twists Reggie's hand, listen carefully and you will hear one of the crew members say "let go."

Mr. Mario

Correction: Reggie says "let go", not a crew member. His mouth also moves when you hear it.

Continuity mistake: At the first family dinner scene, grandma starts coughing. The camera shows her from the front with a glass of water to drink. The camera then switches to the side and shows her with a glass of coke in front of her. Her daughter says "Momma drink some water" and suddenly it turns into a glass of water again.
