Miscellaneous 

The story begins on Thursday, August 28, 1980 and follows the characters through the weekend leading up to the first day of classes on Monday. However, Monday, September 1, 1980 was Labor Day and most schools would have been closed on that holiday. Since S.T.U. is a fictional school, it could be said to be an exception, but none of the characters even mention the holiday so it seems like an oversight goof.

Revealing mistakes 

At Justin's house, a close-up is shown of a phonograph playing track 2 or 3 of an LP with a dark blue label. The song supposedly being played is "Alternative Ulster" by Stiff Little Fingers, but that album had a reddish-orange label and that song was Track 4 of Side 2. The LP in the close-up was obviously just a prop platter.
