Goofs

Anachronisms 

In the game, Alex makes a reference to "Gettin Jiggy Wit It", which wasn't released until 1997. Since he disappeared in 1996, he would not know the song reference as it had not yet been released.

Character error 

When the group comes to a dead end while running away from the bad guys on the motorcycles, Ruby Roundhouse (or Martha) says they all must jump off the cliff to save themselves. After they jump, Ruby climbs out of the water and dies because she was shot, however, there was no point where the bad guys were shooting at her. She was completely fine at the top of the cliff before jumping, and the bad guys never shot when they were in the water.

While Bethany is composing her selfie, at the beginning of the movie, the coffee mug handle is facing to the left. When the camera angle changes to a wider shot, the mug handle is facing "upward,", which she adjusts to face left. She proceeds to take the selfie with the coffee mug handle facing left.

Miscellaneous 

Removing staples from old magazines to prep them for recycling. There is no actual need to do this according to the recycle guide of MIT. Still the principal (or the writer for that matter) may use it as an intentional pointless task.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When the teens start the video game there is a loading screen. This is a cartridge based game and cartridge based video games did not require loading.

Batman Forever a cartridge based game gave players a "loading screen" back in the 90s.

Plot holes 

This movie is set in Bratford, New Hampshire, the same place the original film was set. At the end of the original film the main characters Alan and Sara take the game and throw it into a river. In the final scene of the original film we see that the game has washed up on a beach and is about to be discovered by two French speaking children. Yet, in 1996, just one year after the events of the original film, the game is back in Bratford, New Hampshire in a teenager's home. There is no explanation given as to how the game made its way back to Bratford.
