Factual error: A video is shown of Derek Huff singing "Ice Ice Baby" at a school talent show that took place when his brother Brennan was 17. Robert states his desire to retire in "in two years," in 2010, making the movie's setting 2008. Brennan is 39 in the film, placing the talent show 22 years ago in 1986. The song "Ice Ice Baby", recorded by Vanilla Ice, came out in the summer of 1990.

Continuity mistake: When Dale tells Brennan he needs to hear him sing, Brennan has a sword and is swinging it around. After he sings, he gets up and the sword is shown on the floor in its scabbard. They flash to Brennan, then back to Dale and the sword is gone.
