Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): No doubt for poetic license, a physical padlock has been put on the gym door by Kenny Carter to "lock out" his players from practice. In real life, Carter, as depicted a part-time walk-on coach, would not have the power to lock out Richmond High School's girls basketball team, wrestling team, badminton team and PE classes. The "lockout" was symbolic, not physical.
  • The highest opening weekend of any release from an MTV Film: $24,182,961 (week of January 14-16, 2005).
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): One of Coach Carter's rules in the contract stated that the players must wear ties on game day. In one scene, there is a sign in the background that reads, "Boys Basketball Game Today" and Kenyan is seen talking to his girlfriend in regular street clothes, thus violating the team rule.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In a scene in the Locker Room after a game, Coach Carter announces that they have qualified for a tournament. Here, we see Junior Battle take off his headband, in the next shot he has it back on, followed again with it off then on again
