Dead Man on Campus Goofs/Mistakes
- Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Cooper and Josh are breaking into the library at night, Cooper wraps the rope around a support beam. When Josh takes up the slack to lower Cooper into the library, the rope he is holding dangles loosely down, revealing it to not be taking any weight and also showing it's not wrapped around the beam. He also doesn't move at all when Cooper drops in and supposedly puts about 180 pounds of weight on the other end of the rope that Josh is holding.
- Movie Goof (boom mic visible): When Cliff O'Malley falls off a balcony after throwing water balloons the second time around and Josh and Cooper run over to him you can see the shadow of a mike boom.
- Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Cooper breaks into the Admin building to steal the student records, he approaches a filing cabinet and tries to open it and says it's locked. However, the lock on the filing cabinet at the top is ejected, which is an indication that the file cabinet drawers are unlocked. If the cabinet was truly locked, the lock would have been pushed in. However, this could be deliberate - Cooper isn't exactly the brightest bulb; it's possible he just doesn't know how to properly open a file cabinet.
