Continuity mistake: In the scene where everyone is going to the Tanning Invitational, Chris grabs two Hawaiian Lei's and a straw hat from a girl at the door. He puts a blue lei on Mitch and holds on to the red one and the hat. The shot switches to just Chris and when it goes back to Mitch he has on the red lei. Back to Chris again who talks a little more then reaches over and puts the hat on Mitch's head, who is again wearing the blue lei.
Continuity mistake: When Jordan brings in the automatic page turner she demonstrates it to Mitch. When it reaches over to turn the page the screen jumps and then the scene continues. This was two takes of the same shot spliced together poorly at the point that the page turner touches to the page on the right. (00:27:50)
Other mistake: When Mitch calls his mom asking to come home Kent and his friends hear him make the call. Mitch then has some conversation with his mother. Kent and his friends begin recording the conversation at the point where Mitch says "I want to come live with you". The problem is that when the recording gets played back in the cafeteria the conversation is replayed from the beginning which was before Kent had begun recording it. (00:45:50)
Kent: Uh, I'll catch up with you guys. I have to go to the bathroom.
Chris Knight: Okay, Kent, but I don't think that's going to help your confidence any, do you?
Old Lady: Tell me, what's Einstein really like?
Professor Hathaway: Dead.
Professor Hathaway: Mitch, there's something you need to know. Compared to you, most people have the IQ of a carrot.
