When Crucial Taunt are playing in Cassandra's apartment as Wayne and Garth head to Milwaukee, there is no echo on the audio. However, when the band stop playing, there is a very clear echo when Cassandra and Benjamin talk and even on the rustling of the papers in her hands so there would certainly be a noticeable echo when the band played.

Character error 

Noah Vanderhoff is talking to Benjamin Kane, explaining the commercials for his chain of stores, Noah's Arcade. He says, "I do my own commercials. Course, I don't mention the games in the commercials, 'cause the technology moves so much faster than the advertising." Yet in the beginning of the movie, they show Benjamin watching a Noah's Arcade commercial, where Vanderhoff is seen specifically listing the video games in his arcades, games like "Zandar, Beauwolf, Ninja Commando, SnakeAZon, Psycho Chopper..."

A crew member (named Terry) gives Wayne and Garth a countdown in the new TV studio. While the words "two" and "one" are normally omitted, Terry says "two" on the third take. He acknowledges his mistake by chuckling briefly before Wayne and Garth begin their show.

At the start of the "gratuitous sex scene", Wayne is alternating opening and closing his eyes, saying "Camera 1" and "Camera 2". When he starts, "Camera 1" is closer to Cassandra's left than "Camera 2", meaning that Camera 1 is Wayne's right eye, and Camera 2 is his left eye. At the end of that part of the scene, however, he says "Camera 2" last, but his right eye is open, which should be Camera 1 if he had been consistent.

Wayne starts playing the Stratocaster in the music store and the clerk points to a sign that says "NO STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN." But he's clearly playing a different song entirely (original theatrical cuts actually used Stairway, but this was changed for home video releases for legal reasons, and as a result the joke no longer makes sense.)

The show Benjamin watches at the beginning of the movie and the tape (of the same episode) that he shows Van Der Hoff, are different. The second time it is seen, Wayne pauses and stutters on words he didn't the first time.

After Garth shocks the guy in the gasworks he juggles his weapon to impress some babes. Just before that cut there is a babe in pink to Garth's left. During the cut there is a babe in black to Garth's left, occupying the same spot. After the cut, the babe in pink is back.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

'Rob Lowe (I)''s character is listed as "Benjamin Oliver" in the credits, but when he first meets Wayne and Garth, he introduces himself as "Benjamin Cain." Contrary to popular belief, this isn't a goof, but a deliberate joke by the crew - a crew member's child had a friend named Oliver Benjamin.
