Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star

Deliberate mistake: When the neighbourhood kids are teaching Dickie to ride a bike, whenever he hits something his brown hair dye, that he applied a few scenes back, is missing from his hair (obviously a stunt double is in place for David Spade).

Continuity mistake: Dickie is finally convinced to take off his gloves for good later in the movie. But not long before this scene when Dickie is making fun of the bullies at school, he has no gloves on the entire time.

Question: When Dickie runs into Leif Garrett at the newsstand, why do they first act like they haven't seen each other in months, and then Leif asks if they're still on for poker on Tuesday? How would they have a poker night set up if they haven't seen each other?

Answer: Maybe Leif called Dickie, or vice-versa, without actually SEEING each other. Maybe it's not a weekly thing, maybe Leif is new to their poker group.
