Continuity mistake: On the 20th date, Trish and Andy are sitting on a chair discussing the date and that they are going to have sex. When Andy speaks, her right hand is on his top button. When Trish speaks, its back in her lap. This happens three or four times, all in the same conversation.

Factual error: When Cal and Dave are playing videogames and coming up with different ways to tell whether or not they're each gay, Cal is using a Nintendo 64 controller. The version of Mortal Kombat that they're playing could only be for Playstation 2, Nintendo Gamecube, or Xbox.


Continuity mistake: During the scene where Beth is in the bathtub, all of Andy's shots have Beth's foot in the lower right hand corner, even though she only has her leg up for portions of the scene. Eg: when Beth puts her "friend" in the water, both her legs are under; we cut to Andy and the foot is in the shot, and then we cut to Beth and both her legs are still under.

Andy: I dated this girl for a while... She was really a... Nasty freak. She just loved to... Get down with... Sex all the time. It was like... Anytime of day... She was like, "Yeah, let's go! I'm so nasty! And I'd be nailing her and she'd be like, "Oh, you're nailing me! Cool!"
