Factual error: When Fogle shoots the cop's pistol at the burning police car, the safety on the Smith and Wesson pistol is activated. He fires the weapon until it is empty and continues to dry fire (click) the pistol anyway. On the Smith and Wesson, the side levers are in Safe mode when pushed down. When the last round is fired, the slide locks back and the gun wouldn't be able to dry fire.
Trivia: Actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse was only 17 during the filming of the movie, creating some problems with shooting due to child labor laws. During pre-production, he was not allowed to see certain props or items from the film (such as Seth's phallic drawings), and his sex-scene had to be very carefully monitored and edited, as certain "actions" (such as too much skin, certain types of movements or positions, etc.) would violate the law.
