Other mistake: Near the end of the movie there is a montage scene of acceptance letters being printed followed by the reactions of the various people who received the letters. Despite these form letters being sent on the same day the date on some of the letters is April 11, 1988 and the date on others say April 11, 1989.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the drama teacher is in the copy shop trying to decide what color paper to buy, his hand keeps moving between shots. Every time the shot is from the copy shop side of the counter, the drama teacher's right hand is in front of the blue paper. But every time the shot is from the drama teacher's side of the counter, his right hand is in front of the orange paper.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chris has his epiphany about freezing the laser he jumps up, grabs the coffee machine and kicks the freezer door. This causes the bar on the freezer shelf to break and a can to fall off the door onto the floor. The shot cuts away to Lazlo coming out of Chris' room, then the shot goes back to Chris with his head in the freezer and the can is back on the door shelf.

Factual error: During the scene where the laser is used to heat the popcorn in Hathaway's house, the laser hist the ground, works its way up the side of the house and then settles on the window. At that point it stops moving. This seems impossible since the laser is being fired from a moving airplane and would constantly need a slightly different angle in order to keep hitting the house in the same spot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Stacy is lowered into the temple to check on Mathias, the first time we see the crank there are about five loops of rope left on the wheel. After a quick shot of Stacy, the camera goes back to the crank and there are now about twelve loops of rope on the wheel, even though she is being lowered not raised.
