Mr. Hand tells the students that the Platt Amendment is an Amendment to the US Constitution and is vital in their daily lives. The Platt Amendment is neither a Constitutional Amendment nor is it important in Americans' daily lives. The Platt Amendment established Cuba as a US protectorate after the USA helped free Cuba from Spanish rule during the 1898 Spanish-American War. Furthermore, it was passed in 1901, not 1906 as he claims.

At one point, Brad claims he has to work before school. But this is during the part of the movie that he works at the seafood restaurant. No fast-food restaurant like this would be open early enough that someone has to work there "before school." One possibility is that the scene was originally meant to be put later in the film when he got the Mi-T Mart job. This theory is backed up in the alternate broadcast version where Hamilton is in a guidance counselor's office talking about his future and he says "I get up at 5:30 to go to work at Mi-T Mart, THEN I go to school, THEN I go back to Mi-T Mart!"
