Goofs
When Jake arrives at Sean's gym on the first morning, there is daylight present. This would be at 5AM, since Sean told him to be there at 6AM and he shows up an hour early according to what Sean says. This is never possible for Orlando, Fl.

When Jake fights Roqua at the Gym, the punch mitt on Roqua's left hand disappears and appears between cuts.
Share this
During Charlie's tennis match we see him lose a point and the announcer calls Deuce. The next point passes and the announcer calls 40-30. You then hear deuce called again moments later. We then see Charlie win a point and the announcer once again calls deuce. It is then announced on the next point that Charlie wins the game without advantage ever being called.
