Trivia
Though never given credit, a decent portion of the movie is filmed in Newport, Dayton, and Covington which are all located in Kentucky. Wiley's house, the restaurant, double date scenes, and some of the races scenes are from these locations. Bellevue, Ky is the only Kentucky city ever given credit.

Goofs
During the skate scene, the beginning of the race shows them coming down Springdale Road - which is in Ohio, about 10 miles from Cincinnati. A few scenes later during the same race, the skaters are coming down Devou Park hill - which is in Northern Kentucky. The entire race scene bounces back and forth between Cincinnati, suburbs and northern Kentucky.

According to Mitchell's parents, he will be spending 6 months in Ohio. In the restaurant, when Jack tells Mitchell that "he's driving Nikki home", Mitchell responds by saying he's been there for 3 weeks, and in the next sentence tells Jack that he's leaving in 3 months. 3 month + 3 weeks = (not 6 months)

When the family is driving home from the Airport, the reflection in Wiley's sun glasses never changes, suggesting the passing scenery was projected onto a screen.

Mitchell Goosen: Mitchell Goosen at your service. I'm not from around here. What to tell. Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Don't care. Just as long as I live near the beach and don't have to wear a tie. Then I'll be stylin'.
