Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

Plot hole: Peter took the $100,000 bribe White gave him and turned it into $5,000,000 by betting on his team. He did this, so he could buy enough shares of Global Gym stock and take over the company, and in the process kick out White as the CEO. The problem is, Global Gym is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and 5 million wouldn't be near enough to gain control of the company.

Suggested correction: Where did you get the figure of hundreds of million? Earlier in the film White said Global Gym was worth $4 million.

Continuity mistake: When the guys are all sitting around (after the car wash) they are throwing ideas to save the gym. In one shot Gordon pulls his magazine out of his bag, but a split second later in a closer shot he pulls the magazine out again. (00:15:15)
