Character error 

In the trailer Trent says the part he was auditioning for was called "Brother". Then he says the casting director said "Trent when you walked in the room, I didn't see Trent Walker come in here, I saw Big Brother come in here." Then he says the director said "I think you're a little old for the part of Brother."

When they stop leaving Vegas on the highway and Trent is relieving himself, his car is red. Later when they all leave to head out to the party, his car is navy blue/black. However, the later scenes are shot at night with only street lights for illumination. That affects the way the car looks.

Errors in geography 

When Mike and Trent pull up to the hotel in Las Vegas, you can see that they are pulling up to the Stardust Resort & Casino, which is located on The Strip. However, once they're inside the casino you can see that the blackjack tables bear the name of the Fremont Hotel and Casino, which is based on Downtown Las Vegas.

Although the guys all lament the fact that there is no fighting in the version of video hockey they are playing, that version is NHLPA '93, which did, in fact, have fighting (as well as being able to make someone's head bleed). Fighting was not removed from the series until NHL '94.

When Mike buys $300 in chips at the casino, the dealer counts the bills and hands him three black $100 chips. They are identical to standard poker tournament chips used in most casinos around the country and clearly say "No Cash Value" on them.
