Tribute is referenced at the end when JB and KG can't remember the song they just sang, hence writing "Tribute" to tribute the song.

Goofs
When KG and JB are driving, especially during the chase scene, it is very obvious that the car is on a trailer and being towed and not actually being driven. When the background shows that the car is pulling over to the curb, or turning, the wheel stays straight and does not rotate.

When the duo's car jumps the car between the police cars, the wreckage of a movie camera, which they land on, is clearly visible sliding away in the foreground.

During the scene showing the map, the location of Norfolk, Virginia, is incorrect. It is shown as being in the middle of the state, but in actuality is located on the coast of the state.

Q
Where is Kickapoo, Missouri?
A
There is no city in the U.S. named Kickapoo. Kickapoo is the name of a Native American tribe which has reservations in Texas and Kansas. Presumably the name "kickapoo" was chosen because it contains the word "poo". EDIT: As there is no real Kickapoo Missouri, there is a Kickapoo High School in Springfield which exists (actually Brad Pitt went there). It is named after a prairie and the Kickapoo Indians, which relocated to Missouri in the 1800's.EDIT: There IS at least one town in the U.S. called Kickapoo, in Wisconsin. There is not one in Missouri, however.EDIT: Furthermore, Jack Black is not from Missouri, but grew up in Hermosa, California, and also he did not grow up in a strict Christian household, but is in fact Jewish.EDIT: There are actually 4 towns in the U.S. named Kickapoo. One in Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, and Texas.EDIT: Kickapoo is a township in Platte County, Missouri. Zip code 65077.EDIT: Kickapoo does not, in fact, have any relevance in any normal US citizen's life, and is merely a place where old people go to die. <--- You're an idiot
