Corrected entry: After Will Ferrell's long jump, the officials come up with a very short measurement by holding the tape at the edge of the landing zone, instead of measuring all the way back to the white line at the starting point.

Correction: The officials know the distance between the starting point and the landing zone, so they only need to measure the distance from the edge of the landing zone and add it to that distance.

Continuity mistake: Phil sustains injuries to his face more than once in the movie. Every time the injuries disappear by the next scene. In one case the injury switches from the right side of his face to the left side between shots in the same scene.

Question: In the scene where Will Ferrell is talking to his wife he says "They were running around like whirling derbishes, and I don't even know what that is" or something to that effect. What is a derbish and why does it whirl?

Answer: An actual dervish (not derbish) is a member of any of various Muslim ascetic orders, some of which perform whirling dances and vigorous chanting as acts of ecstatic devotion (hence the term "whirling dervish"), though in general 'a whirling dervish' is used for anyone who moves with an unfocused, almost frenzied energy.
