When Judge Smails is hit in the groin with the golf ball, the up close shot shows direct sunlight on his pants, when he looks back at Al Czervik the shadow indicates that he would have had to have been hit in the butt for shadow to show sun on his pants.

Factual errors 

In the closing cast credits, Sarah Holcomb was cast as "Tony D'Annunzio" when, in actuality, it was Scott Colomby who played the part. Sarah played "Maggie O'Hooligan". (This was fixed in later releases of the film.)

At the beginning of the boating scene when Al takes over for his captain, he uses both hands to accelerate the two throttles of both engines of the twin-screw boat. At the end or the scene when he shuts down the engines, he only operates the lever for the port engine leaving the starboard one at full throttle. His boat would not have stopped.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Ty doubles the amount of the bet in the bar scene, he doubles it to 40,000 and tells Judge Smalls that his dad never liked him. Later on, Al and Ty double the amount of the bet again, to 40,000 apiece (from the previous 40,000 per team). This confused at least one viewer.

Revealing mistakes 

During the scene when there is a party at the club, Carl is hunting the gopher with his gun outside. He is moving from tree to tree, and you can see in the background that it is the daytime when it's supposed to be night.
