Factual error: The movie they're watching in the theater, "The Fly", is shown backwards. The first scene they see should have happened after the last scene they see.
Directed by: David Seltzer
Starring: Charlie Sheen, Winona Ryder, Corey Haim, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Kerri Green
Continuity mistake: When the football players are trying to chase Lucas off of the field, Lucas is not wearing or carrying his helmet, and it isn't seen anywhere near him. When the players give up and decide to continue playing with Lucas on the field, in the closeup Lucas is putting on his helmet, which has magically appeared.
Continuity mistake: During the football game, after Lucas drops the football, there is a scramble to recover the ball. As Lucas turns to face the opponent who picks up the ball, we see #87 pick up the ball. The scene moves to the cheerleaders clapping, then when the scene goes back to the field, we now see that #44 of the opposing team has the football.
Lucas: You can't ever make me quit, ever.
Lucas: There is a dance on Friday and if you and Alise could take Maggie and me, it'd be great. See, she has to meet people. She has a strong need for acceptance.
Rena: Throw it to Lucas.
Maggie: Throw it to Lucas.
Ben: Throw it to Lucas.
Band Member: Throw it to Lucas.
Coach: No, don't throw it to Bly.
