    • Daniel: These jocks think they're such badasses. Like they cured cancer or something.

    • Plot Hole: It's supposed to be Basketball Season taking place during the Winter in Michigan, yet when we see outdoor scenes of Daniel driving his car, all the trees are green and full of leaves.

    • Anachronism Alert: There is a father using a hand held VHS camcorder during the Basketball scene but the handheld video camcorder wouldn't be introduced until the mid 80's.

    • In the basketball scenes, a three-point line is visible even though college and high school basketball didn't adopt the rule until near the end of the decade.
