Revealing mistake: When McLovin' is in the car with the police, if you look really closely through the reflection from their glasses, you can see the green screen that is used in movies. When the scene shows the outside of the car, there is nothing around them that would reflect the screen.

Continuity mistake: In the scene right before Seth gets backed into by a car, there's a neon 'open' sign in the store behind him that keeps turning on and off from shot to shot. It changes from 'open' to unlit about 3 times, and you can still see the sign when it's unlit.

Continuity mistake: When Seth and Evan are turning the corner and are stopped by Jesse when he is about to tell them that they're not invited to a party he's holding, Evan has a drink in his left hand when he turns around, and in the next shot he's holding it in his right hand.


Seth: He is the sweetest guy. Have you ever looked into his eyes? It was like the first time I heard the Beatles.

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.
