Mean Machine

Continuity mistake: When Nitro is being sent to another prison, as he is put into the back of the van the prison guard on the right has his hat knocked off, but as he closes the door his hat is back on.

Continuity mistake: During the match, when funny music is playing, the guards attack the Mean Machine team. Monk has left empty the area (this is not the part when they do the goal), and you can see that there's nobody in the Monk's area. Change of shot, and suddenly there's a person of the Mean Machine team. Change of shot (when the ball almost enters) and there's nobody again in the area.

Audio problem: When Bill (the guy that sucks in the game but at the end makes the third goal) is showing with the Monk how to attack the other team, he has a lot of pain at the end of this show. When the man that explains everybody how to do this, says "Number 24", Bill says "I can't" because he has a lot of pain, but obviously that "I can't" has been dubbed over.

Trivia: At the end of the movie the match commentator gives the following speech: "Guards of Pentonville, guards of Wandsworth, Walton nick in Liverpool, policemen of Britain, traffic wardens and parole officers, wheel clampers, your boys have taken a hell of a beating today. A hell of a beating." This speech is a direct reference to Norwegian sports commentator Bjørge Lillelien who made British headlines, when Norway in 1981 beat England out of the world cup qualifier.

Trivia: During the demonstration by Chiv and Monk, Monk grabs Billy's privates and lifts him off the floor. This is a variation on the famous Vinnie Jones move first used on Gazza in the English football league. This move is also in Gone in 60 seconds and can be seen on Vinnie's website.

Danny Meehan: I'll tell you something, I didn't start off out as a youngster looking to sell my country out.
Massive: None of us planned to be here, mate.
