Glory Road picture

Other mistake: When Haskins and the other coach are going on their recruiting trips in the beginning, we can see the two of them talking on the phone. Funny thing is, that both of them are using pay phones. So who called who? How did they know the number? And how did they know when the other one was going to be near that pay phone? I feel it is highly impossible for one to reach the other when both of them are using pay phones.

Everyone's Hero picture

Continuity mistake: When Yankee goes into his bedroom after losing the baseball game in the sandlot, he tears a hand-drawn picture of himself, Babe Ruth and his dad off the wall. The pieces of the picture fall on the bedroom floor. A few shots later the pieces are missing. Yankee was the only one in the room, and he didn't move them. Plus the window is closed, so it couldn't have been wind.

Gridiron Gang picture

Continuity mistake: In the last game of the season, little used receiver 88 catches a long pass and runs/falls out of bounds, stopping the clock with 11 seconds left. The clock then starts before the snap of the ball (ball is actually snapped with 1 second left). A play out of bounds should stop the clock until the ball is snapped on the next play (in this way, they should have had time for a couple of plays).

Believe In Me picture

Factual error: When the girls go to their motel rooms before the regionals, they exclaim over the color TV in the room. However, that TV has a digital tuner, not available in the mid-60s.

Revealing mistake: When the speaker during the first game played says "This game might have had a different outcome", everyone in the crowd looks at a different spot, but the small kids agree on just looking straight into the movie camera. (00:01:25)
