Continuity mistake: In the scene at Steven's parents' house as Steven is yelling at Chip for being a felon, Chip gets up and slowly walks right next to Steven and whispers something in his ear, Steven instantly is moved back one or two feet in the next camera shot before he had a chance to move and he punches Chip in the mouth.
