Corrected entry: After Stevo and Heroin Bob leave Bob's dad's house they are in their van and Stevo is driving, but it is evident the van isn't moving at all, just moving back and forth, because nothing is passing them (trees, other cars, etc.).

Correction: You can't really see the street, only the back windows, which are spray-painted so you can't see out of them. The position of the camera is looking directly at the stuff hanging from the reat-view mirror.

Corrected entry: During the flashback when Stevo is arguing with his parents about college he has a huge blue mohawk. As he walks by the window the light reveals the lines where the skullcap is attached to his head.

Correction: According to the DVD commentary, the mohawk is entirely real. This was one of the first scenes shot, because when Matthew Lillard showed up on set he had long hair. The film makers merely took advantage of this and gave him a huge mohawk.

Corrected entry: The movie takes place in 1985 but in the party scene they have suicide machines playing and the suicide machines' first album came out in 1996.

Correction: The song "I Never Promised You A Rose Garden" was used in the film because it was on the soundtrack. The Suicide Machines have commented about being asked to contribute to the soundtrack. It wasn't for accuracy it was to sell albums.

Corrected entry: There is a shot that shows the van with the word 'antidisestablishment' written across it. Wouldn't these punks be pro-disestablishment? 'Antidisestablishment' implies that someone is against anarchy, which is not the case with these guys.

Correction: The van says "antidisestablishmentarianism", which is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as "roperly, opposition to the disestablishment of the Church of England, but popularly cited as an example of a long word.". It's just a joke because it's a ridiculously long word.

Corrected entry: When Stevo is confronting his parents, not only do you see where the skullcap ends, but when he jumps around, his mohawk moves like paper. If his hair was that high in a perfect mohawk, it would be rock solid, not flimsy.

Correction: Mohawks are never rock solid, and on the DVD commentary Matthew Lilliard says the mohawk is real.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bob, Stevo and Eddie are in the beer store, talking to about satan followers and Nazi's, a couple of shots before Stevo shows his 666 tattoo he's holding 2 cases of mickeys, a shot later Eddie has them - there would be no time to hand them to him.

Correction: You can see Steve-O hand the two cases of beer to Eddie before showing the tattoo.
